Published since 1986, Hacettepe University Journal of Education is an open access and fully refereed journal devoted to research in all fields of Education. The journal is published quarterly both in online and in print format. Having published scholarly work from both local and global contexts, the journal is indexed in Scopus and the Emerging Sources Citation Index (Thomson Reuters, Web of Science), and is covered in Google Scholar Metrics.

Hacettepe University Journal of Education announces a call for abstracts for its 2018 special topic issue: Conversation Analytic Studies on Teaching and Learning Practices – International Perspectives. The aim of the special issue is to bring together articles from various contexts that use Conversation Analysis to investigate learning and teaching practices. This broad perspective will allow contributions from a wide range of institutional settings where learning is mediated through talk-in-interaction. The scope of the issue, therefore, will include teaching and learning of languages, science, and other subjects and will go beyond teaching and learning practices in traditional classrooms in a way to cover online interaction.


Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Second Language Acquisition (CA-for-SLA)

Teaching and Learning of Science and other subjects

Talk-in-interaction in Language, Content, and CLIL classrooms

Interactional Competence

English (and any other language) as a Medium of Instruction

Language Teacher Education

Teaching and learning practices in Online Interaction

Multimodal interaction in mediated learning environments

Multilingual practices in mediated learning environments

Epistemics and teaching/learning practices

Teaching/Learning of professional communication (e.g. medical interaction)


Authors interested in publishing in the special issue should first send a 300-500 word abstract with keywords and bio details. Authors of the selected proposals will then be notified to submit their full length articles. Manuscripts will be subject to anonymous review by a panel of experts.

The accepted papers will be given DOI numbers and will be available online ahead of print after the final decision by the referees and the special issue editors.

There is no publication fee, and the articles will be available online free-of-charge. Each author will also receive a print copy of the journal.
