| Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) and Rigorous Review Process

International Journal of Linguistics Studies publishes articles on a continuous basis. Articles are published in the current issue as soon as they are peer-reviewed, accepted, copyedited, and proofread, allowing a steady stream of informative quality articles. The journal then archives the articles within 4 issues: January-March; April-June- July-September; October-December. In the continuous publication, articles may be submitted at any time. They still undergo the same process of peer review and preparation, but this can begin right away and ends as soon as the article is ready. Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.

| Manuscript Submission

Manuscripts are accepted on a continuous basis, and there is no deadline for submission. If you are interested in submitting your manuscript, please submit it using the journal online system or send it via email at: ijls@al-kindipublisher.com. For guidance on submissions or further information, please contact the Editor. 

Kindly visit the journal homepage for aims and scope, editorial board listing, abstracting/indexing services list, and other information.
