Peer Review Process

The journal uses a peer review system and encourages blind reviewing. The editorial boards will decide whether to accept or reject manuscripts based on the review results provided by the reviewers. There has been no communication between the writers and the editors regarding the rejection decision. Before proceeding to the review process, all manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism using "Turnitin" software. If there is any evidence of plagiarism, the manuscript will be rejected immediately. The reasons for the rejection will be communicated to the authors whose papers are rejected.


Publication Frequency

Journal of Education, Language Innovation and Applied Linguistics (JELITA) is published in online versions with a publication schedule in January and July every year.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


Screening for Plagiarism

JELITA: Journal of Education Language Innovation and Applied Linguistics has a Turnitin tolerance for plagiarism and unethical publication practices. Authors must guarantee that their article meets the highest standards, that attributions and citations are correct, and that the paper is unique. Each manuscript that is submitted to the journal is checked for plagiarism.

The journal uses Turnitin to measure similarity levels, with a maximum similarity percentage of 30%, and the author will be well-informed about the results of similarity checks. All papers with plagiarism detections are immediately rejected.

Plagiarism occurs when an author directly or indirectly quotes ideas, facts, or words from another source without giving proper credit to the source. Plagiarism, even if unintentional, is a major academic infringement that is not tolerated in international academic publications.

When an author obtains precise information (a name, date, location, statistical number, or other detailed information) from a specified source, a reference is necessary.

If the author derives an idea from another author, he or she should properly state the author's identity. When the author expands on the topic, he or she may mention one or more citations from the sources before developing their views in the next sentence.

JELITA: Journal of Education Language Innovation and Applied Linguistics values academic integrity, and the editors reserve the right to revoke acceptance of an article that violates any of the plagiarism standards listed above.
