A manuscript submitted to IJLT takes an average of 60 days for admin check, review processes, editorial process, and an accept or reject decision. There is no need for authors to ask for an update on the process during this time. It is recommended to ask only after 60 days. At the end of these processes, if your paper is accepted, it will be published in the first issue. Also, you can check the progress of the process in the journal management system from your account.
