Peer Review Process

Every article that goes to the editorial staff will be selected through Initial Review processes by Editor in Chief. The Editor in Chief has the right to reject article that does not meet the scope of this journal. Every article will be checked for plagiarism by using Turnitin. Then, the article will be going through Double Blind Peer Review in order to check for the scientific merit and the contribution of submitted articles to English or Arabic Language Fields. The reviewers are expected to give valuable comment to improve the quality of the article submitted

After getting feedback from two reviewers, the editor will make a publication decision. The review process will take approximately 2 months to 3 months. There are 4 categories of decisions:

  1. Accepted without revision: Accepted article will be published in the current form
  2. Accepted with minor revision: The article will be published under the condition that the minor revision already revised by the author
  3. Resubmit for review: The article needs to be re-worked with major changes and the author has a chance to resubmit the article by repeating the submission process
  4. Rejected: The article is rejected and the author could not resubmit the revised version of the article to the JETLI: Journal of English Teaching and Linguistic Issues

All articles published in Open Access will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.
