TESOL Appoints New Co-Editors for TESOL Journal

by David Cutler | 01/23/2018
​TESOL Press, the publishing division of TESOL International Association, has appointed new co-editors for TESOL Journal (TJ), the Association’s refereed, practitioner-oriented online journal. Starting in 2018, Youngjoo Yi and Peter Sayer will become associate co-editors, serving alongside current TJ editor, Joy Egbert. In 2019, both Yi and Sayer will fully assume their new roles as co-editors. Their term runs through 2021. 

Youngjoo Yi is an associate professor at The Ohio State University and has been actively involved in TESOL as a member of the TESOL Journal editorial review board, the TESOL Quarterly editorial board, and as a reviewer for TESOL Research Mini-Grants and conference proposals. As a former middle school English teacher in South Korea, Yi has extensive experience working with English learners, preservice teachers, and in-service teachers in both the United States and Korea. 

Peter Sayer is an associate professor at The Ohio State University. Previously, he was an English teacher in Mexico and has published extensively in the area of language education and sociolinguistics. Sayer has a strong commitment to increasing access for students from all backgrounds to quality language education programs that support multilingual development. He has served as guest editor of MEXTESOL Journal and System, and is a former Fulbright Scholar to Mexico. 

“We’re honored to take on the challenge of editing the TESOL Journal, and excited to be able to work with language educators from across the globe,” noted Yi and Sayer when asked about their new appointment as co-editors. “We’re both looking forward to building on the success of the journal in supporting established, as well as up-and-coming authors, whose work at the intersection of practice and theory continues to push the field of TESOL forward.”

TESOL Journal, a refereed professional journal published by TESOL Press and distributed by Wiley-Blackwell, serves as a forum for second and foreign language educators at all levels to engage in research that informs, shapes, and grounds teaching practices and perspectives. In publication since 1999, TJ appears in March, June, September, and December of each year. TJ’s readership includes ESOL teacher educators, teacher learners, researchers, applied linguists, and ESOL teachers. TJ is available to all TESOL members as part of their membership benefits, and subscriptions are available institutions.
