Standard and Criteria

Manuscripts that exhibit the following characteristics will meet the selection criteria for publication.

  • Content: Original research with significant findings that contribute to the discipline that also command a general interest.
  • Presentation: Systematic and well-organized prose whereby an argument flows and is easily comprehendable.
  • Language: Simple, lucid and highly intelligible to a general intellectual audience. There should be minimal usage of specialized terms, jargon or technical language; if unavoidable, an explanatory note should be included.

Manuscripts that are not accepted for publication include those that are too elementary, poorly written and/or poorly organized, incoherent, too specialized in scope, unduly technical, or are excessively long.

TTLC2018 Publication Peer-Review Process

  • Submitted manuscripts goes through a review process that normally takes between 4 to 6 months.
  • A blind review is practiced so that neither contributor nor reviewers are known to one another.
  • The Editor-in-Chief will have the first initial review of the paper on its suitability and relevance in consultation with members of the Internal Review Panel. If appropriate, reviewers are identified again through consultation among the Internal Review Panel. If the review reports are unfavorable, the Editor-in Chief, in discussion with the Review Panel, decides whether an outright rejection is advisable or to seek another reviewer before a final decision is made.
  • In the event of rejection, the author of the paper is notified. If the reviews are encouraging, the author is notified; the review feedback will be provided for the author to undertake revisions in line with the reviewers’ comments and suggestions.
  • The revised paper when received by the Editor-in-Chief will again be evaluated to ensure that all issues raised by the reviewers have been addressed. If deemed necessary, the revised paper is forwarded to the reviewers for another reading. When all aspects are satisfied, the author is notified that his/her paper has gone through the review process and is now accepted for publication in a forthcoming issue of the TTLC2018 Publication or Journal.
