Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process

 Seshiski: Southeast Journal of Language and Literary Studies is a  peer-reviewed journal. Submissions which meet the requirements of the journal are reviewed by two experienced reviewers in the field of Literature, Language, Translation, and Cultural studies. The review process is expected to take two (2) to three (4) weeks but it may take longer depending on the number of papers currently being reviewed. The following are the four main steps of the review process. 

All submissions can be made using the online journal system or sent via email directly to the editorial team. Every submitted manuscript will be checked by the editor. Manuscripts that do not match to the journal criteria are rejected without review. Manuscripts that match with the criteria of the journal will first be checked for plagiarism. If the standard of the similarity level of words/Similarity Index meets the specified standards, the script will be processed to peer review with a system between the author and the reviewer who do not know each other (double blind review). Each article will be reviewed by two (2) different reviewers. If the manuscript is required for revision it will be returned to the author. Editors make decisions based on the reviewers’ recommendations. The editor has full authority to make any decisions after receiving reviews and recommendations from reviewers as follows:

  • Manuscript can be accepted without change
  • Manuscript can be accepted under minor revisions (editors will check)
  • The manuscript can be accepted under major revisions with the necessarily changes recommended by the reviewer/appraiser
  • Manuscript is rejected
