Copyright Policy

This journal requires authors transfer copyright or assign exclusive rights to the publisher/journal. No part of the works published in any issue of TOJELT may be reproduced, stored or introduced into a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form, or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without the prior written permission of the TOJELT. 


Peer Review Policy

The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good science is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out by all reputable scientific journals. Our referees play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of the TOJELT and all manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Special issues and/or conference proceedings may have different peer review procedures involving, for example, Guest Editors, conference organisers or scientific committees. Authors contributing to these projects may receive full details of the peer review process on request from the editorial office.

Initial manuscript evaluation
The Editor(s) first evaluate all manuscripts. Manuscripts rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are normally passed on to at least 2 experts for review.

Authors of manuscripts rejected at this stage will be informed within 2-3 weeks of receipt.

Type of peer review
This journal employs double blind review, where the author and referee remain anonymous throughout the process.

How the referee is selected
Whenever possible, referees are matched to the paper according to their expertise. Our database is constantly being updated. We welcome suggestions for referees from the author though these recommendations are not necessarily used.

Referee reports
Referees are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:
– Is original
– Makes a theoretical contribution to the study ELT
– Is methodologically sound
– Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
– Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
– Correctly references previous relevant work

Language correction is not part of the peer review process, but referees may, if so wish, suggest corrections to the manuscript.

How long does the review process take?
The time required for the review process is dependent on the response of the referees. However, the typical time for the TOJELT  is approximately 6-8 weeks. Should the referees' reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. In rare cases for which it is extremely difficult to find a second referee to review the manuscript, or when the one referee's report has thoroughly convinced the Editor, decisions at this stage to accept, reject or ask the author for a revision are made on the basis of only one referee's report. The Editor's decision will be sent to the author with recommendations made by the referees, which usually includes verbatim comments by the referees. Revised manuscripts might be returned to the initial referees who may then request another revision of a manuscript.

Final report
A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees, and may include verbatim comments by the referees.

The Editor's decision is final
Referees advise the Editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.

The benefits of refereeing for the TOJELT include the opportunity to read, see and evaluate the latest work in your research area at an early stage, and to contribute to the overall integrity of academic research and its published documentation.


Archiving Policy

TOJELT uses the LOCKSS system to allow the creation of permanent archives in libraries for conservation and restoration, as well as the distributed archiving system of participating libraries. If you would like to know more about the LOCKSS system. CLICK THE LINK

Based on Stanford University Libraries, the LOCKSS Program provides award-winning, low-cost, open source digital protection tools to provide libraries and publishers with access to persistent and authoritative digital content. The LOCKSS Program ( is a library-led digital protection system built on the principle of "securing large numbers of copies". The LOCKSS Program develops and supports libraries using open source end-to-end digital protection software.

The LOCKSS system allows librarians at each institution to access and protect their subscribed e-content and restore the printed buying model that librarians are familiar with.
The Global LOCKSS Network protects today's e-journals and e-books for tomorrow's readers. The Global LOCKSS Network is a proven conservation approach that empowers both libraries and publishers in a unique way. The Global LOCKSS Network is managed by the Stanford University Libraries LOCKSS Program.
