All IJCLT publications have been through rigorous peer review, and their quality have been assessed by independent peers within the field. IJCLT enforces “double blind” reviewing, in which the referees and the authors remain anonymous to each other. The handling editors conduct a preliminary review of all submitted manuscripts and only those that meet the minimum criteria will be passed on to at least two expert referees for formal reviewing.

A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with the recommendations made by the referees.
