JSL is proud to provide a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary forum for discussion of all issues related to language, literature, and other aspects of culture. It is now published annually. Submissions are accepted throughout the year. All submissions undergo blind peer-review.The peer-review process takes time but we will try to get back to you within three months.
JSL follows the same well-established ethical practices as all other reputed journals. It has zero tolerance for plagiarism and expects all contributors to declare that the papers are completely original and not published in part of full elsewhere. Permission for all copyrighted material – photographs, extracts, and articles (even if they are by the author) published elsewhere earlier , illustrations, quotations of more than 400 words, more than 40 lines of poetry, graphs, tables, maps, web material – must be obtained from original copyright holders in writing prior to the submission of the manuscript to us. The author should provide all necessary documentation (letters of permissions: printed copies or e-mails) to the publisher. Mere attribution to the copyright holder will not suffice.
All interviews must be published with the permission of the interviewees. Again, a consent letter has to be submitted with the manuscript.
Please follow the latest edition of the MLA Handbook for style.
