Guidelines for Contributors

Authors are encouraged to submit high quality, original work that has not appeared in, nor is under consideration by, other journals. Expanded versions of papers which have previously appeared in conference proceedings can be considered; the authors must then clearly state at the time of submission the conference publication and provide a statement of revisions/updates that have been made to the journal paper. In order to be considered for publication, the version of the paper submitted to the iEnglish journal should represent a significant improvement over the original in terms of presentation and completeness and/or additional input and new results.

Please submit  the manuscript in our online submission manger considering the following guidelines:

  • Use MLA (Modern Languages Association) documentation style (8th edition handbook). For quick reference, Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab is a good resource:
  • Article length is usually between 5,000 – 8,000 words. Please edit longer articles so the argument comes forward succinctly.
  • Include a short abstract with key words (150 words max.)
  • Submit articles in MS Word or compatible format.
  • Note that our review process can take up to six months.
  • All contributions must include a short biographical information of the author(s).
