Introduction of the Online Submission and Review System


詳細は、日本言語テスト学会 オンライン投稿審査システムの導入について(お知らせ)

We are pleased to announce that JLTA is going to introduce an “Online Submission and Review System” from the 2019 academic year. This system is organized by the International Academic Publishing Co., Ltd., which JLTA has commissioned part of JLTA’s administrative work since 2014. Within this system, all submission and review processes will be recorded online. Furthermore, to improve the JLTA Journal’s quality, submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism using a database of published articles and for anonymity using human resources. The newly introduced system is similar to what international journals employ but may not be common to journals published in Japan. Thank you in advance for your understanding of the new online system.

See for details Introduction of the Online Submission and Review System.
