We are also open to any research methodologies, such as: development, analysis, evaluation, experiment, survey, experiment, correlation, case study, grounded research, and action research.

Peer Review Process

Our practice of peer review is to ensure that only good article is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out by all reputable scientific journals.

JELTIM operates under the guidance of the editorial board, providing expert advice on content, attracting new authors and encouraging submissions.

JELTIM editorial board is a team of experts in the English language teaching innovation and materials. The editorial board members: (1) review submitted manuscripts; (2) advise on journal policy and scope; (3) identify topics for special issues, which they may guest edit; and (4) attract new authors and submissions.

JELTIM editorial board members are selected by the journal’s editor(s), with input from the publisher. Editorial boards generally undergo a complete revision every two or three years, with members joining, stepping down or continuing for another term. Changes also occur in the interim, for example if a member resigns.

A journal’s editorial board can affect its quality, so editors should consider the following:

The location of board members should represent the reach of the journalBoard members' expertise should represent the journal's scopeRepresentatives should be appointed from key research institutesFormer Guest Editors of special issues, and authors of key reviews, and top reviewers may be suitableExisting board members may have suggestions for new members
