Issues in Language Studies or ILS (e-ISSN 2180-2726) is an open-access journal of the Faculty of Language Studies and Communication Studies (formerly known as Centre for Language Studies), Universiti Malaysia Sarawak. The journal publishes articles on teaching, learning and the study of languages covering areas of linguistics, applied linguistics, language education, technology-mediated language learning, and other related areas.
