Proposal selection criteria

All proposals underwent a double blind peer-review process.

Guidelines for proposals: Please note that ALAPP conference policy is one main oral presentation per author. You may choose to submit more than one proposal, but normally only one proposal will be accepted for oral presentation. Any additional accepted proposals may be presented as poster(s).

There was no fixed template for writing proposals but authors were urged to attend to the following criteria which formed the basis for peer review:

  • originality of the topic and its relevance to ALAPP
  • relationship between title and content
  • structural organisation
  • background contextualisation and relevant literature
  • theoretical/methodological/analytical appropriateness
  • clarity of claims and relevance


Individual panels were reviewed in their entirety on the above criteria but also on the basis of their relevance to broader issues in the field of applied linguistics and professional practice; the overall coherence of the proposal; and the usefulness of the panel to conference participants.
Decisions about acceptance/rejection were communicated by end of June 2016.
