Editorial Welcome for Volume 17 Issue 2 October 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, including ERIC, SCOPUS, and 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 completed our seventeenth volume. In this issue, the articles examine matters about the process-genre approach to academic reading and writing, pre-service teachers’ challenges during practicum, evaluation of oral English program, variations in academic writing, English teachers’ identity, using picture dictionaries for vocabulary learning, pre-service English teachers’ commitment and EAP students’ conceptualization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With their precious findings, in-depth insights, and critical implications for language teaching and learning, all these studies add to the literature and support future research on youth and language. We hope that you enjoy reading the articles published in this issue. As the editorial team of Novitas-ROYAL, we would like to give special thanks to Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mustafa MAKAV for his guidance and contributions to the publication of this issue.
