2. Submission and Peer Review Process

(1) Submission
All manuscripts should be submitted online at http://submission.kate.or.kr/. Authors must create an account if they do not already have one. If you have any difficulty submitting via this system, please send your manuscript to katejournal29@gmail.com.
(2) Submission guidelines
All the manuscripts for English Teaching must follow the KATE Submission Guidelines. For more information on contributing, please visit our “Author Guide”.
(3) Peer review process
English Teaching reviews all manuscripts received. A manuscript will first be subject to an in-house evaluation process that measures quality, format, and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the paper seems suitable for the journal, it is sent to three reviewers in the field with relevant knowledge. In addition, if deemed necessary, a review of statistics may be requested. We use a double-blind peer review system, in which the authors’ names and affiliations are removed.Authors can check on the status of their manuscript by logging on to the submission homepage at http://submission.kate.or.kr/. If the status of the manuscript is shown as “With Editor, ” the manuscript is awaiting either in-house evaluation or the assignment of reviewers. When the status changes to “Under Review,” the manuscript is with the reviewers. A final decision for publication is forwarded to the corresponding author from the editor. If the evaluations are negative, the paper is normally rejected. If the evaluations suggest major revisions, it is likely to be rejected but authors are given the opportunity to revise and resubmit the manuscript. In this case, when the revised manuscript is received, it is sent out for a second round of reviews, with at least one of the previous reviewers being asked to comment. If the revised version still receives negative evaluations, it will most likely be rejected. If the final revisions have properly addressed the reviewers’ comments, we will usually accept the paper.
