Ethics Guidelines for AJELT

The Asian Journal of English Language Teaching (AJELT) upholds the highest ethical standard in terms of the full process of research and publication, from research design, data collection, to manuscript preparation and presentation. We adopt a zero-tolerance policy for any form of academic misconduct. Authors of manuscripts submitted to AJELT should comply with the following guidelines.

1) Research ethics
Authors should comply with the research ethical guidelines of their institutions. When human participants are involved, ethical approval should be sought from a relevant authority in the institution and consent should be obtained from participants. Parental consent must be secured if any minors participate in the research.
Any form of data fabrication, distortion, or falsification is strictly prohibited. All data should be accurately and adequately reported as an honest representation of your research.

2) Submission
It is important to include a statement indicating that the submission (1) has not been previously published (in English or other languages) and (2) is neither currently being reviewed nor will be submitted for review while the manuscript is being considered by AJELT.

3) Plagiarism
The journal requires that all contents consulted or works referenced be properly acknowledged according to the latest APA style. Failure to do so may result in rejection of the submission at any stage of the review and publication processes.

4) Conflict of interest
The authors should honestly report any conflicts of interest that may affect the results of the study. If the authors do not declare a conflict of interest that may bias the actual or potential interpretation of the findings, the submission will be rejected.
The editors will abstain from handling manuscripts for which they have any conflicts of interest that may unduly influence reviewer selection and decision on the submission.
The reviewers are also required to declare conflicts of interest for the papers they are The Chinese University of Hong Kong Press: Copyrighted Materials assigned to review.

5) The double-blind peer review process
AJELT follows a strict double-blind peer review policy. The editors will conduct an in-house review to determine if the topic of the submission suits the scope of the journal and if the quality of the article is adequate for external review. At least two external experts on the topic of the article will be invited to assess the submission, provide comments, and make recommendations. The editors will make a decision to accept, reject, or request revisions of the submission based on the comments and recommendations of the anonymous reviewers. All research articles in this journal undergo a rigorous peer review, including the initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by at least two reviewers. In most instances, the review process is completed in three months or less, but sometimes a second round of review is required after revision.
