Each submitted article is evaluated on the following basis:

  1. The originality of its contribution to the field of scholarly publishing;
  2. the soundness of its theory and methodology given the topic;
  3. the coherence of its analysis;
  4. its ability to communicate to readers (grammar and style); and
  5. the writing format matched with the journal's submission guide.

Normal turn-around time for screening and evaluation of manuscripts is 2 to 4 months from the date of submission.

Editing the Metadata

Providing accurate metadata submitted by the author is a part of the author's responsibility. We encourage authors to verify the metadata upon submitting manuscript to Englisia Journal. Author(s) may also contact the assigned editor to revise and edit the metadata if submission has been made.

Editing metadata of published manuscript requires editor role access. Author may contact the assign editor to perform the editing. What author should know is that changing the metadata also affected the galley. Completed galleys needed to be re-layout, re-upload, and also to be synced with the OJS metadata. Changing these metadata requires additional work outside of the normal editorial tasks. Therefore, the author will be charged USD25 upon request of editing the submission metadata. However, the editor will decide whether the editing is necessary and workable (does not affect the volume pagination, etc).
