Editorial Welcome for Volume 17 Issue 1 April 2023
Welcome to the new issue of Novitas-ROYAL. Since 2007, more than twenty indexing agencies have found Novitas-ROYAL worthy of inclusion in their indices and repositories. Among all of these agencies, ERIC, SCOPUS, and TUBITAK-ULAKBIM (TR Dizin) have been the leading ones. Novitas-ROYAL has published studies submitted by researchers across thirty different countries and welcomed readers from at least twice as many countries. Hence, we thank our readers, reviewers, and authors for making our achievements and impact possible. With this issue, we have initiated our seventeenth volume. In this issue, the articles published examine matters about requestive language use of bilingual children, writing self-efficacy, learners’ perspectives regarding the use of online labs, transforming learners’ agency through online tools, using augmented reality with storytelling on young learners’ vocabulary learning and retention, metacognitive listening instruction, and issues about listening skills in the Turkish context. We hope that you enjoy reading the articles published in this volume and issue.
