The MEXTESOL Journal (, a professional publication of the Mexican Association of Teachers of English since 1976, is dedicated primarily to the classroom English teacher in Mexico and the world. It is an indexed, online, open-access journal, published four times a year. Previously unpublished articles and book reviews related to EFL teaching in Mexican, Latin American and other similar contexts throughout the world are accepted for publication in either English or Spanish. Articles can be either practical or theoretical in nature. The MEXTESOL Journal aims to be member/reader-friendly and to contribute to classroom teachers’ understanding of the processes of language teaching and learning and to improve their teaching practice.

A researched-based or theoretical article should report original research or discuss research-related issues. This type of article is usually submitted as refereed to be judged by two readers in blind arbitration. A note regarding the refereed status is noted on the published article.
The MEXTESOL Journal referees come from institutions representing the wide geographic reach of the Association and the diverse teaching situations found in Mexico and throughout the world.

Non-refereed articles usually include book reviews, descriptions of classroom practice which do not involve rigorous research, and any other previously unpublished articles relevant to EFL professionals in Mexico.
