Language Testing Bibliography Project of the Japan Language Testing
Association (JLTA)

         We would like to inform you the launch of a new JLTA initiative
called the “Language Testing Bibliography Project.” As you may know, ILTA
(International Language Testing Association) has been collecting references
of published papers “on language testing from 1999 to the present,
including works that are currently in press, for the revised ILTA Language
Testing Bibliography” (Brown, 2007). JLTA’s Language Testing Bibliography
Project members will collect the references to be sent to ILTA Language
Testing Bibliography.

         And it is hoped that the list we compile will be comprehensive and
cover published papers (in both Japanese and English) mainly related to
language testing in Japan. (We will accept the publications before 1999. The
JLTA Bibliography is to be a list of the books published to the present).
Please see all references for testing articles that you have published to Yo
In’nami (see below) by e-mail. Please use the correct format and follow the
procedures listed below.

Yo In’nami’s e-mail address (Please send your e-mail to both addresses.)

1. Procedure
1.1 List references to published books and articles which are formatted
according to the APA style guide (see 4. Format).

1.2 List your submissions under the category that fits each of your articles
or books . “If you are unsure what the categories cover, please refer to
the list of sub-categories in the Classification Index of the 1999
Bibliography at http://www.iltaonline.com/ILTA_pubs.htm” (Brown, 2007).

1.3 Please list the references within categories in alphabetical order.

1.4 Send them to Yo In’nami (see above). The subject line should be [JLTA
list]. Confirmation of receipt will be sent out within a week. Those who
send the reference lists must be the authors themselves, but submissions are
not restricted to JLTA members.

1.5 The JLTA will make a combined list and send it to ILTA, to Annie Brown
at <annieb (at) napo.ae> or Paul Jaquith at <paul (at) napo.ae>.

2. Deadline: November 30, 2007 (Please send the list as early as possible.)

3. Notes
3.1 ILTA Language Testing Bibliography from 1990 to 1999 can be seen at
They “aim to publish the volume in print and on-line format, and in format
suitable for importing into reference databases such as Endnote” (Brown,

3.2 All the papers in JLTA Journal will be in the list, but please send us
references with the categories under which articles you have written should
be listed.  We especially need to know the information on papers written in
Japanese. If not, we, the project members, will decide them.

3.3 Even if you have already sent your references to ILTA, please send a
copy to us because we are considering making the final JLTA list available

4. Format
Please refer to American Psychological Association (2001) for details.
There is one difference from the APA style guide: You do not need to
italicize necessary parts.
