International Journal of Systemic Functional Linguistics

Systemic-centered Journals
The following journals are directly directed at Systemic Linguistics:

Language, context and text: The social semiotics forum. (Benjamins). "an international, refereed journal with a focus on the use, critique and development of social semiotics as originally proposed by the British linguist M.A.K. Halliday. It is dedicated to new theoretical and empirical work in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) concerning any language. Additionally, there is a deep interest in studies of other modalities that use a social semiotic approach and are directly related to SFL. Social semiotic studies of inter-modal relations between language and other meaning systems are of particular interest, as are transdisciplinary studies in which language use plays a key role."

Functional Linguistics: (Springer): An electronic journal. From the website: "The journal publishes scholarly articles and reviews in the broad area of functional studies, with a special focus on systemic functional linguistics".
Functions of Language: The FOL Home Page. There you will find links to the journal's statement of purpose, some notes for contributors, its style sheet, and the tables of contents of past and forthcoming issues.

On 10 November, the SFL activists in Indonesia officially established the Association of Systemic Functional Linguistics of Indonesia.

The event was marked by:The first national SFL seminar, attended by more than 100 participants from different cities in Indonesia. There were around 30 parallel sessions and two plenary sessions. One plenary session was by Jim Martin.
The declaration of ASFLI by Jim Martin
Prior to the seminar, there were other seminars by Jim at Atmajaya University and Jakarta State University, all of which were greatly appreciated.
The event took place at Jakarta State University which is now our headquarter at least for 3 years. The headquarters will move to different a different university every 3 years. For practical reasons, the "Jakarta group" is now in charge of ASFLI (see above).

From the presentations and the panel sessions we learn that:SFL has been widely spread in Indonesia since some universities have been introducing SFL and other SFL related subjects in their universities.
Since SFL has become a major issue in some graduate schools, our graduates spread SFL further to the neighboring universities. In Central Java, for example, private universities have incorporated SFL in their curricula.
SFL is now the basis of our national English (communicative)competence standards.Schools are supposed to develop their own curricula based on these standards.
Genres and genre-based approach is now a widespread issue and many teachers are very enthusiastic about it.  Among the audience were graduate and doctorate students who are currently doing their research on SFL. This is the tip of an iceberg. There are alot more doing SFL studies in different cities. It looks like SFL has developed strong roots in the country and we have every reason to hope for further development.
