Peer Review Process

The review process usually takes no longer than 4 weeks, and concentrates on the following:

1. The structure of the study

2. The content of the study

3. The language of the study

The submitted works are evaluated on a scale of 1 to 10, and an average of 5 would be usually regarded as satisfactory. (The authors might be required to complete the necessary revisions)

JFLET uses the Turnitin and iThenticate plagiarism-detection services. Each submitted manuscript is checked for originality. Manuscripts with similarity over 25% are automatically rejected or sent back to the authors for revision. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author’s own work, in whole or in part without proper citation is not tolerated by the journal.

The authors of the articles retain copyright of their papers and can republish them in other ways, making reference to its original publication in JFLET.
