IJLLT applies a double blind peer review. The reviewers remain anonymous for the author during the whole review process and the author’s name is removed from the manuscript under review. The manuscript submitted to IJLLT is subject to a rigorous, two-stage peer review process. The manuscript is first assessed by the Editor-in-chief to decide if it is qualified for review in terms of both form and content. Once the manuscript is judged suitable for IJLLT, a double-blind peer-review process will get started. The reviewers will be asked to send their review reports within 7 days. Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the Editor-in-chief will make one of following decisions:
- accept the manuscript without changes
- accept subject to minor corrections
- accept subject to major modifications
- reject the submission
In case of minor/major corrections, the author has to correct the submission according to the reviewers’ comments. The author has to send back the corrected manuscript to the Editor-in-chief on time for smooth publishing process.
Copyrights for articles published in the journal are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author’s responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.
International Journal of Linguistics, Literature and Translation (IJLLT) is very strict regarding plagiarism. IJLLT believes that copying someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgement of the original author and source is unfair, dishonest and unethical. All manuscripts submitted for publication to IJLLT are cross-checked for plagiarism using Turnitin software. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during initial stages of review are rejected and not considered for publication in the journal. In case a manuscript is found to be plagiarized after publication, the Editor-in-Chief will conduct a preliminary investigation with the help of a suitable committee constituted for the purpose. If the manuscript is found to be plagiarized beyond the acceptable limits, the journal will contact the author’s institution.
