We welcome research articles, empirical reports, reviews from the authors interested in any of these areas.

Paper Submission and Selection

The PJLTS is interested in the articles on emergent and challenging issues. All submitted papers are acknowledged quickly and reviewed as rapidly as possible. They are initially scrutinized by the Editors who decide whether they meet certain basic standards with respect to, for example, length, presentation, clarity and level of scholarship. Those papers that pass this initial scrutiny are sent out to referees who are carefully selected on the basis of their expertise. Once suitable referees are identified, they are normally asked to reply within a month. We follow blind peer-review system; the papers are reviewed by two researchers, one national and the other international; the reviewers’ identities remain anonymous to the authors. The review process may take up to two months. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in MS Word format.
