Focus and Scope

Journal of Language and Linguistics Studies (JLLS) is a professional, double blind peer-reviewed international journal that aims to involve scholars from around the world. The journal provides a platform for different theoretical and thematic approaches to linguistics and language teaching.

We accept only manuscripts written in English. The editors seek manuscripts that:

  • develop theoretical, conceptual, or methodological approaches to language and linguistics,

  • present results of empirical research that advance the understanding of language and linguistics,

  • explore innovative policies and programs and describe and evaluate strategies for future action, and

  • analyze issues of current interest.

Authors are always welcome to submit their manuscripts for publication consideration. They may submit your manuscripts online or send their manuscripts to the editor.


Peer Review Process

We use a double-blind system for peer review: The identities of both reviewers and authors remain anonymous. Each submitted manuscript is peer reviewed by at least two experts. In some rare cases, we may start a third round of peer review according to the recommendations from editors and reviewers.


Recruitment for Reviewers

Participation in the peer-review process is absolutely essential to the success and reputation of the journal. Reviewers and editors determine which works are of quality and significance. Due to our extensive readership, the research and scholarship selected by our reviewers will ultimately have an impact on literacy in national and international classrooms.

Publication Frequency

Journal of Language and Linguistic Studies (JLLS) is published twice a year, in April and October.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
