The CALICO Journal, founded in 1983, moved to Equinox in 2015. CALICO Journal is the official publication of the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO) and is devoted to the dissemination of information concerning the application of technology to language teaching and language learning. The journal is published online-only, is fully refereed and publishes research articles and studies and software and book reviews. Three issues appear annually and normally one of them is a thematic issue on current discourses and developments in Computer-Assisted Language Learning. CALICO's international editorial board and large group of authors and reviewers reflect its global readership.

Personal membership in The Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO) includes a subscription to the journal. For more information and to join, please visit the Consortium's website.
