Journal information

Each submitted manuscript is evaluated on the following basis:

  • The originality of its contribution to the field of scholarly publishing.
  • The soundness of its theory and methodology given the topic.
  • The coherence of its analysis.
  • Its ability to communicate to readers (grammar and style).

Therefore, the manuscript submission and peer review process are broken down into the following steps:

  • The author submits a manuscript.
  • The Editor assigns reviewers to the manuscript.
  • The reviewers review the manuscript.
  • The Editor drafts a decision to be sent to the Author.

Authors can send papers to the journal directly through the journal’s website by e-mail: editor@adeletters.com. After the manuscript is submitted, the corresponding author will receive an acknowledgement confirming receipt and a submission ID number. The Editor-in-Chief first review manuscripts. The Editor-in-Chief is assisted by Section Editors or Members Editorial Board delegated by the Editor-in-Chief. The manuscript is checked to see if it meets the scope of the Journal and its formal requirements. If it is incorrect or unsuitable, the author should be informed and the manuscript is directly rejected. Manuscripts that are not suitable for publication in the Journal are rejected. A Rejection letter is sent to the author stating the reason for rejection. If the manuscript conforms to the aims and scope of the Journal and formally abides by the Instructions to Authors, it is sent out for review.

Before submission, authors should check that the manuscript is written and styled in accordance with the style of the journal, including an abstract (if applicable), keywords, appropriate reference system, etc.

Upon receiving the manuscript, the reviewer reads and evaluates the manuscript and finally sends a review report to the Editor-in-Chief. The optimal time for the review is up to 15 days, this time can be extended (up to 30 days) in agreement with the reviewers. The reviewer receives clear instructions for work, that is, a series of questions on which to give an opinion.

For each reviewed paper, the reviewer must give his opinion in the form of a recommendation:

  • Accept in present form.
  • Accept after minor revision.
  • Reconsider after major revision.
  • Reject.

Upon receipt of the review, the Editor-in-Chief sends the review to the authors, rejecting the manuscript or asking the authors to revise their manuscript in accordance with the reviewers’ comments. If a revision of the manuscript is requested, the authors are given a period of 21 days. Upon receipt of the revised manuscript, it is re-sent to the reviewers who have requested to see the corrections. The above process is repeated until the reviewers either accept the manuscript for publication or reject it.

Papers accepted for publication are sent to the Technical Editor and Proofreader for final control.
