Paper Submission and Selection

The JALL is interested in articles on emergent and challenging issues. All submitted papers will be acknowledged quickly and reviewed as rapidly as possible. They will be initially scrutinized by the Editors who decide whether they meet certain basic standards with respect to, for example, length, presentation, clarity and level of scholarship. Those papers that pass this initial scrutiny are sent out to referees who are carefully selected on the basis of their expertise. Once suitable referees are identified and accept the commission, they are normally asked to reply within a month. We follow double-blind system for peer-review; the reviewers’ identities remain anonymous to authors. The review process may take four to five weeks.Authors are required to follow the authors’ guideline given on the web page of the journal.
Authors may contact the Editors at any time for information on the status of their papers. Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or an academic thesis); it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; its publication is approved by all authors and implicitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out; and, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the editors. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in MS-Word format to:
