Manuscript submission

Manuscripts are submitted to AJLG by e-mail. Submission is an ongoing process and authors upon receiving the results of the peer review will be announced about the issue of the journal in which their article will be published. Submission of a paper implies that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

 

Peer Review Process

The articles published in the AJLG undergo a double-blind peer review by experts in the field. The peer review process of the AJLG usually lasts from two to three months.

Submissions are first evaluated by the Editors within four weeks. The editor may reject it out of hand either because it is not dealing with the subject matter for that journal or because it is manifestly of a low quality so that it cannot be considered at all. If the manuscript is considered suitable for publication, it is sent to two reviewers, two experts in the field of the paper. Referees of a paper are unknown to each other. The peer review process is double-blind, whereby both referees and authors are kept anonymous.

Referees are asked to evaluate the manuscript within four weeks. If the reviews are positive, but the manuscript requires to be revised and resubmitted, the author is expected to submit the revised version in four weeks.

The final decision regarding the acceptance of a manuscript is taken by the editorial board, which has the right to refuse a manuscript or to accept it with corrections.
