Welcome to the new issue of Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language). Since its inaugural issue published in 2007, more than twenty indexing agencies have found Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language) worthy of inclusion in their indices, including ULAKBIM and ERIC. Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language) has also published studies submitted by researchers across thirty different countries and welcomed readers from at least twice as many. With this issue, we have initiated our fifteenth volume. In this issue, the articles published focus on teacher education, discourse analysis, teacher identity, intercultural sensitivity, online language learning, and global issues. We believe that these studies will add to the related literature while supporting future research on youth and language. Finally, we thank our readers, reviewers, and authors for making these achievements possible. We hope you enjoy reading the articles published.
