Implementation of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for the Journal of Language Teaching


Dear valued readers and authors,

We are writing to inform you that starting from today, we will be implementing article processing charges (APCs) for all papers that are accepted for publication in our journal. The APC for each article will be $350.

We understand that this change may cause some inconvenience, and we are aware that some of our authors may be suffering from financial hardships. In such cases, we will be happy to offer partial or complete discounts on the APCs. If you are facing financial difficulties, please do not hesitate to reach out to us and we will be happy to assist you.

As an academic journal, we rely on the support of our authors and readers to continue providing high-quality content. However, the operation fees of running a journal can be quite high, and these charges will help us cover these costs. These charges will be used to cover expenses such as copyediting, typesetting, hosting, and indexing services.

Please note that the APCs will only be applied once the article is accepted for publication, and authors will not be charged during the review process.

We would like to express our appreciation for your continued support of the Journal of Language Teaching, and we look forward to receiving your future submissions.

Hao Wu
Editor of JLT
