Peer Review Policy :
LangLit aspires to select research paper, through highest quality peer review. In order to achieve this, the peer review and publication process must be thorough, objective, and rational. Almost every aspect of this process involves important ethical principles and decisions, which are rarely unambiguously stated and even less often shared with the readership. Journal’s reputations depend on the poise of readers, authors, researchers, reviewers, editors, research subjects and funding agencies.
The ethical policy of LangLit: An International Peer–Reviewed Open Access Journal follows Elsevier’s https://www.elsevier.com/about/our-business/policies/publishing-ethics. Authors must be honest in presenting their results and conclusions of their research. Research misconduct is harmful for knowledge. It could mislead other researchers.
Plagiarism is the use of other’s published and unpublished ideas or words without acknowledgment or permission, and presenting them as new, innovative and original ideas or words rather than derived from an existing source. At LangLit, we strongly dispirit & condemn against this ruthless act. If found guilty, to any extent, LangLit will fight for Plagiarism. Self-plagiarism refers to the practice of an author using portions of their previous writings on the same topic in another of their publications, without specifically citing it formally in quotes. In short, the journal has zero tolerance for plagiarism.
The accountability of the research article published in the journal is entirely of the author(s) concerned and not of the publisher/editorial board. The view expressed in the research articles of LangLit is those of the contributors, and it does not principally correspond to the views of the publisher/editor. Authors are responsible for their citing of sources and the accuracy of their references and bibliographies. The publisher/ editorial board of the journal is not liable for errors or any consequences arising from the exercise of information contained in it.
