A submitted article is first checked by the editors for its suitability for JLTE. The checks include: relevance, originality and form (i.e. compliance with the submission guidelines and manuscript requirements).

Information about the identity of the author(s) is deleted from a manuscript and approved by the editors.

All submissions to JLTE are peer-reviewed and subjected to a blind review process.

The review process is conducted by referees who are specialists in the field. The reviewers are affiliated with institutions different from that of the author(s).

Both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewer, and vice versa, throughout the review process.

JLTE makes every effort to keep the review process as short and reasonable as possible and the contributing authors are expected to receive a decision within three months of submission.

The author(s) receives one of the following decisions:

Accept as it is

Accept with minor changes

Accept with major changes

Revise and resubmit as a new paper
