Copyright & Licensing

Copyright and Licensing:

Submission of an article to International Journal of Language Testing (IJLT) implies that the paper has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of an academic thesis) or is not under review for publication elsewhere. Material which has been previously copyrighted, published, or accepted for publication will not be considered for publication in this journal. Submission of a manuscript is interpreted as a statement of certification that no part of the manuscript is copyrighted by any other publisher nor is under review by any other formal publication.

Responsibility for opinions expressed rest solely with the author(s) and their organizations and is not the responsibility of the IJLT or its Editorial Board. The corresponding author is responsible to obtain all necessary copyright release permissions for the use of any copyrighted materials in the manuscript prior to the submission. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication. The journal is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author’s responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.
