Keywords:BC TEAL Journal, Open Access, English as an Additional Language, Scholarly Publishing, English Language Teaching
This editorial marks the fifth anniversary of the BC TEAL Journal. Remaining committed to free and open access scholarly publishing that draws connections to English as an additional language (EAL) teaching and learning in British Columbia, the journal has met a number of important milestones over the past five years. These milestones include bringing together the large number of people involved in producing each issue of the journal, reaching a wide audience of readers, being listed in a range of scholarly databases and indexes, assigning digital object identifiers (DOIs) to each article and issue, and joining the respected ranks of other important open access journals in the field of EAL teaching and learning. The editorial also outlines the key themes in the current issue related to K–12 contexts, English for academic purposes (EAP), language instruction to newcomers, workplace English, research methods, and critical whiteness studies. Finally, the editorial concludes with a recognition of the challenging times EAL teaching and learning faces and an expression of gratitude to everyone in the BC TEAL Journal community.
