 Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines

 This OPEN ACCESS journal ensures double-blind review for every submitted manuscript. It means that in the review process, this journal conceals both the identity of reviewer and author and vice versa.  

To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity in the submitted manuscript.  To help with this preparation please ensure the following when submitting to Journal of English Language and Literature (JELL): 

Submit the manuscript without the Author biodata (Name, Afiliation, E-mail.). The name of the file must not contain the Author identity.


Information to help prepare the Title Page

This should include the title, authors' names and affiliations, and a complete address for the corresponding author including telephone and e-mail address.

Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review.  To assist with this process the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier

Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.

Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows:  ‘[Anonymous, 2007]’, using APA Style such as Mendeley, endnotes, etc.

For blinding in the reference list:  ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.’

Remove references to funding sources

Do not include acknowledgments

Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.

The paper will be published in Journal of English Language and Literature after peer-reviewed process and decided “Accepted” by Editor. The final paper layout will be reproduced by Editorial Office of Journal of English Language and Literature. The final paper layout in PDF type, known as “Uncorrected Proof” should be corrected by Author. The final corrected proof will be published first in “Article In Press” pre-issue.
