Author Guidelines

A peer-reviewed, open-access, academic e-publication

ISSN: 2536-4731

JFLET is intended primarily for emerging scholars and graduate students who seek for a place to publish their first work(s). JFLET would also accept submissions from undergraduate students of all disciplines related to education, foreign language education, ICT, and educational material development. The journal welcomes submissions of research papers, review papers, book reviews, and educational materials.

Starting from volume 3 issue 1, JFLET will publish papers of well-established researchers and scholars in the special contribution section of each issue.

Each of the submitted works is to be subjected to a blind peer review process conducted by two referees who are specialists in the field. Within the period of four weeks after submission, authors will receive acceptance notification, rejection notification or information on the necessary changes that need to be applied to their contribution before publication.

The manuscripts must conform to the specifications of Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (sixth edition).

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 7 would be usually regarded as satisfactory.

JFLET uses the Turnitin and iThenticate plagiarism-prevention services.
