Call for Peer Reviewers


Journal of Language Teaching (JLT), a newly established journal, is a scholarly peer-reviewed international educational journal published monthly, focusing on theories, methods, and materials in language teaching, study and research. It provides a high-profile, leading-edge forum for academics, professionals, consultants, educators, practitioners, and students in the field to contribute and disseminate innovative new work on language teaching and research.

JLT invites original, previously unpublished, research and survey articles, plus research-in-progress reports and short research notes, on both practical and theoretical aspects of language teaching, learning, and research.

JLT is seeking Editorial Board members to join its peer reviewer. Responsibilities include:

  • Reviewing articles: When requested by the Editor or Associate Editors please review papers within the allocated deadline. If you are unable to review for any reason, please suggest alternative reviewers from your networks. This is a crucial part of being on the Editorial Board and integral to the continuing success of the Journal. If you are unable to suggest a colleague or review the paper yourself, please let the editors know as soon as you can to avoid delaying the peer review process.
  • Encouraging submissions: Encouraging quality submissions to Energy & Environment helps the journal to grow in quality and reputation. Please consider submitting a paper yourself to the Journal and actively encourage students and colleagues to submit.
  • Suggesting special issues, ‘hot topics,’ and reviewing articles: Hot topics and/or review/special issues can attract more readers and citations to the Journal. If you spot any trends or areas that might help raise the profile and benefit JLT, please let the editors know your suggestions or submit your own for consideration.
  • Citing the Journal: If you are writing articles, please remember to use the Journal in your research, where appropriate. Citing articles from JLT will help increase the Impact Factor.
  • Encouraging usage of the Journal: Encouraging your faculty, students, and other professionals to use the Journal helps librarians to decide to retain/subscribe to the Journal at your institution.
  • Encouraging your institution to subscribe to the Journal: If your institution does not already subscribe, please recommend JLT to your librarian. Subscriptions ensure the Journal’s commercial success and increased circulation means increased usage and citations.
  • Participating in board meetings: By attending board meetings we can work together to develop the Journal. Your feedback and experience as an editorial board member are central to informing decisions about the future of the Journal. If you cannot attend, please send your feedback to the Editor or Publisher.
  • Promoting the Journal at conferences: If you are attending any conferences and would like to take copies of JLT, or promotional business cards, please contact Hao Wu, Editor,, and he can arrange for these to be sent to you.
