Cover Letter

The International Journal of TESOL & Education (ijte), online ISSN [pending], is committed to upholding ethical standards, retracting articles, and correcting errors. The editorial team's primary responsibility is to discourage publishing malpractice. Any type of unethical conduct is unacceptable, and this Journal's Editorial Team does not tolerate plagiarism in any form. All manuscripts must be the authors' original work and free of indications of plagiarism.

Authors can guarantee that their writings are entirely unique and that any writing or words credited to another are properly referenced. Additionally, publications that had an impact on the nature of the finding reported in the manuscript should be acknowledged. The writers must certify that the manuscript has never been written before.

Disclosures and declarations

All authors are requested to include information regarding sources of funding, financial or non-financial interests, study-specific approval by the appropriate ethics committee for research involving humans and/or animals, informed consent if the research involved human participants, publication on vulnerable populations, and a statement on the welfare of animals if the research involved animals (as appropriate).

The decision on whether such information should be included is not only dependent on the scope of the journal, but also the scope of the article. Work submitted for publication may have implications for public health or general welfare, and in those cases, it is the responsibility of all authors to include the appropriate disclosures and declarations.

Data transparency

All authors are requested to make sure that all data and materials, as well as software applications or custom code support their published claims and comply with field standards. Please note that journals may have individual policies on sharing research data in concordance with disciplinary norms and expectations.

Role of the Corresponding Author

One author is assigned as the corresponding author and acts on behalf of all co-authors, ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately addressed.

The Corresponding Author is responsible for the following requirements:

  • ensuring that all listed authors have approved the manuscript before submission, including the names and order of authors;
  • managing all communication between the Journal and all co-authors, before and after publication;
  • providing transparency on the re-use of material and mentioning any unpublished material included in the manuscript in a cover letter to the Editor;
  • making sure disclosures, declarations, and transparency on data statements from all authors are included in the manuscript as appropriate.

The requirement of managing all communication between the journal and all co-authors during submission and proofing may be delegated to a contact or submitting author. In this case, please make sure the corresponding author is clearly indicated in the manuscript.


The primary affiliation for each author should be the institution where the majority of their work was done. If an author has subsequently moved, the current address may also be stated. Addresses will not be updated or changed after the publication of the article.

Author identification

Authors are recommended to use their ORCID ID when submitting an article for consideration or acquire an ORCID ID via the submission process.

Authorship issues or disputes

In the case of an authorship dispute during peer review or after acceptance and publication, the journal will not be in a position to investigate or adjudicate. The authors will be asked to resolve the dispute themselves. If they are unable, the journal reserves the right to withdraw a manuscript from the editorial process or, in the case of a published paper, raise the issue with the authors’ institution(s) and abide by its guidelines.


Authors should treat all communication with the journal as confidential, which includes correspondence with direct representatives from the journal such as editors-in-chief and/or Editors and reviewers’ reports unless explicit consent has been received to share information.

Compliance with Ethical Standards

To ensure objectivity and transparency in research and to ensure that accepted principles of ethical and professional conduct have been followed, authors should include information regarding sources of funding, potential conflicts of interest (financial or non-financial), informed consent if the research involved human participants, publication on vulnerable populations, and a statement on the welfare of animals if the research involved animals.

Authors should include the following statements (if applicable) in a separate section entitled “Compliance with Ethical Standards” when submitting a paper:

Please note that standards could vary slightly per journal depending on their peer review policies (i.e., single or double-blind peer review) as well as per journal subject discipline. Before submitting your article, check the instructions following this section carefully.

The corresponding author should be prepared to collect documentation of compliance with ethical standards and send it if requested during peer review or after publication.

The editors reserve the right to reject manuscripts that do not comply with the above-mentioned guidelines. The author will be held responsible for any false statements or failure to fulfill the above-mentioned guidelines.

Conflicts of Interests

Authors are requested to disclose interests that are directly or indirectly related to the work submitted for publication. Interests within the last 3 years of beginning the work (conducting the research and preparing the work for submission) should be reported. Interests outside the 3-year time frame must be disclosed if they could reasonably be perceived as influencing the submitted work. Disclosure of interests provides a complete and transparent process and helps readers form their own judgments of potential bias. This is not meant to imply that a financial relationship with an organization that sponsored the research or compensation received for consulting work is inappropriate.

Review Form

The authors can have a close look at the Review Form to see how or what aspects of their papers are reviewed so that they could revise to enhance the quality of their papers.

The Reviewers also use this Review Form as guidelines to provide useful comments to help the authors improve the quality of their research papers.
