Section Policies

Langua accepts research-based original manuscripts submitted online. Manuscripts submitted will be reviewed using an open review system.

Review Process

A review is the evaluation process of the articles submitted by the authors. Langua applies an open peer review system. Every submission will go through an initial review by assigned editor to check the minimum requirement for inclusion in the journal including but not limited to plagiarism checking, scope and depth of discussion, manuscript structure and length, novelty, and references. Every submission that passed the initial review will be sent to assigned reviewer for further evaluation. The open review enables the authors to receive comments and feedback on individual manuscripts. The review process is kept objective and confidential. The reviewers are not allowed to share or disclose unpublished information in a manuscript. The reviewers can reject reviewing the manuscript if the manuscript has conflicts of interest.
