By-Laws & Policies
JELI adheres to a rigorous double-blind peer-reviewing policy. Each manuscript is first desk-reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief, and then assigned to members of the Review Panel for double-blind peer-review. The Editor-in-Chief does not review the submissions but assures that they are in the scope of JELI and meet the minimum requirement of formatting. Submissions are reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers (except for book/software reviews, letters to the editor). The Review Board is composed of terminal degree holders and doctoral candidates. JELI is careful to assign manuscripts that align with reviewers’ expertise. The average time for the completion of the review takes about 12 weeks.
