Author Guidelines

English Language in Focus (ELIF) Journal publishes original research in the field of English Applied Linguistics with relevance to real-world issues. The most important criterion for acceptance of an article is that the article must make significant scientific contributions. In most cases, meeting this standard requires a theoretically important, empirically proven, preferably through the use of multiple studies. The research methodology and data analysis must be sound.

Author who wish submit article must send it via OJS system and ensure that the following items are present:

  1. Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible
  2. Author's name and affiliation. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. The author's affiliate address is displayed below the names (where the actual work was done). Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.
  3. Abstract. Abstract in English language. A concise and factual abstract is required of approximately 200 words. The abstract should briefly describe the purpose of the research, the main results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, references should be avoided.
  4. Figure captions. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. Supply captions separately, not attached to the figure
  5. Tables. Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on separate page(s) at the end. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.
  6. Citation in text. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa)
  7. References. Please use reference management software products. These include all products that support Citation Style Language styles, such as Mendeley, Zotero, or Endnote.
  8. Reference style. Citations in the text and references should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition.
  9. Manuscripts should be written in English and must be submitted online through our Online Submission Website. For the journal template click here.
