Peer Review Process

To have high quality publication, each manuscript received in Journal of English for Academic (J-SHMIC) will undergo the following process:

1. Desk review by the editors to determine whether the manuscripts comply with the writing guidelines.
2. If the manuscripts comply with the writing guidelines, they will be reviewed by minimum two reviewers (double-blind peer-reviews). The reviewers do not know the names or identities of the authors during this process, nor do the authors know the identity of the reviewers. Reviewers may be Editorial Board members or they may be invited Guest Reviewers.
3. Most submissions receive an initial editorial decision within 4 weeks until 16 weeks from the date of the submission.
4. An article shall be reviewed by max 1 month per reviewer & be sent back to Editor.
