GRETA Journal, Revista para Profesores de Inglés (ISSN 1989-7146), is preparing the publication of its 22nd volume. GRETA Journal publishes manuscripts on English Language Teaching Methodology. The objective of the journal is to bridge the gap between the field of Applied Linguistics and class praxis. Other fundamental goals include providing updated information about the latest trends, techniques, materials, and methodologies employed in EFL teaching and to exchange experiences and publications between research teams both on a national and international level.

GRETA Journal is included in the following databases: ANEP/FECYT, CIRC, DIALNET, DICE, Linguist List, IN-RECH, ISOC-Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades (IEDCYT-CSIC), MIAR, LATINDEX, MLA International Bibliography, MLA List of periodicals and RESH.

In keeping with its continuous concern for state-of-the-art issues, the journal makes a call for contributions related to one specific topic of current and future relevance for education at any level: Evaluation (Volume 22, no. 1). We also welcome papers on other topics, approaches, frameworks, etc. for a different miscellaneous issue (Volume 22, no. 2) with the following regular sections:

Theory behind the Practice
Classroom Techniques
In the English Classroom (Primary, Secondary, University, Adults)
Teaching English for Specific Purposes
Bilingual Education
New Technologies in the English Classroom
Teaching Culture and Teaching Literature
Teacher Training and Development

The deadline for submissions for the next volume HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO MAY 31st, 2017. The proposals will be double blind reviewed. Contributions can be made in English or Spanish and must adhere to the publication guidelines of the journal (see below). Manuscripts should be emailed to the editors at

GRETA Journal publishes original articles, book reviews and interviews.
GRETA Journal operates an anonymous peer review process in which the author’s name is hidden to the reviewer and vice versa. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. All manuscripts are reviewed as soon as possible.
Greta Journal takes issues of copyright infringement or plagiarism. We aim at protecting our authors and well as the journal’s reputation against misconduct. Submitted articles may be checked with appropriate software. In this way, we reserve the right not to publish the submitted material if any copyright infringement is detected.
Before submitting your manuscript, please read carefully and adhere to the following guidelines. Manuscripts not conforming to these may be returned.

Manuscripts should be emailed to the editors at
Manuscripts should be written in English or Spanish. They should not exceed 7,000 words in A4 paper. A cover sheet should include the title of the manuscript, author(s) name(s), affiliation, e-mail address and a biodata. An abstract of no more than 150 words plus up to 5 keywords should be provided both in English and Spanish.
Ensuring the blind review process: To make sure the journal adheres to the blind-review process, we ask the authors/reviewers to hide their identity. The following link provides information on how to do this:

Font and spacing: manuscripts should be justified and presented in Times New Roman 12 font in the main body; 11 for separate paragraph quotations; 10 for endnotes, tables, figures, charts or appendices; 8 for abstracts. Words written in a language different from that of the manuscript should be typed in italics. Text should be single-spaced; double space being only included between paragraphs and subtitles.

Headings: headings should be written in capital letters.

Notes are to appear as endnotes and should be kept to a minimum. They should be included at the end of the manuscript, just before the references. They should be numbered consecutively. The use of notes to indicate references should be avoided.

Figures, tables and illustrations should be included, numbered and titled/labelled as
they are mentioned in the manuscript.

Quotes: GRETA Journal adheres to APA citation format. All quotes should include author’s surname and year of publication, and literal quotations must also include page number. Quotes shorter than 40 words should be kept in-text. Quoted words or sections in running text should be in double quotes with single quotes within. Quotes longer than 40 words should be included in a separate paragraph, without quotation marks, and at Times New Roman 11 font.

In-text citations should adhere to the following:
- Authors should be cited as follows within the main text:
▪ Ellis (1994, p. 9)
▪ (Larseen-Freeman, Smith, & Long, 1991, p. 21)
- If several references appear within a parenthesis, they should be ordered alphabetically and separated by a semi-colon:
▪ (Burton, 1992, p. 593; Bybee, 1973, p. 12; Croft, 1981, p. 214)
- If several works by the same author are cited, lowercase letters a/b/c/… should be placed next to the year of publication without any additional spacing:
▪ Sapir (1949a, p. 121)
▪ Sapir (1949b, p. 98)

References should appear in alphabetical order. Only those references mentioned in the manuscript should be included. Titles of books and journals should be written in italics; titles of journal articles should be written in sentence-case without quotation marks. Only the first word and proper nouns in titles should be capitalized, except for periodicals. The following are examples of this style:
