Welcome to the new issue of Novitas-ROYAL. Since the inaugural issue published in 2007, more than twenty indexing agencies have found Novitas-ROYAL worthy of inclusion in their indices, including ERIC, SCOPUS, TUBITAK-ULAKBIM (TR Dizin). Novitas-ROYAL has also published studies submitted by researchers across thirty different countries and welcomed readers from at least twice as many countries. We thank our readers, reviewers, and authors for making these achievements possible.
With this issue, we have initiated our sixteenth volume. In this issue, the articles examine matters pertaining to English language learners’ perceptual learning styles, clarification requests, project-based English learning in rural areas, syntactic and lexical complexities in writing, validation of intercultural sensitivity scale for young EFL learners, refusal speech acts, learners’ comprehension and awareness, procrastination and motivational factors. We hope that you enjoy reading the articles.
