General Manuscript Submission Guidelines 

  1. Authors have to register first before submitting a manuscript. 
  2. Authors are requested to submit their article electronically by using the online submission and review https://englishfocus.upstegal.ac.id/  
  3. Authors are requested to submit their manuscripts electronically by using the online submission and review site. This site will guide authors through the five-step submission process.  Submissions that do not adhere to this procedure WILL NOT be considered for the review process.
  4. All authors involved in the writing of the article should be included in the submission metadata from the beginning. We will not accept the addition of authors included after the review process has commenced.
  5. Authors are required to conform to the (Reference Guidelines) as given here if they want their manuscripts to be considered for publication.
  6. Authors are to check manuscripts for accuracy of language before submitting them to the journal.
  7. Manuscripts submitted to English Focus go through an internal review and if they meet the basic requirements, they are sent out for double-blind review from experts in the field, either from the editorial board or identified reviewers. Comments from the external reviewers are sent to the authors and they are notified of the journal’s decision (accept, accept with revisions, reject). This entire review process will take anywhere between 3 - 6 months after the submission of the article. The editor’s decision is final.
  8. We do not encourage multiple submissions. A published author is required to wait ONE year before the publication of another article. The rule remains in the case of co-authorship.
  9. Article Processing Charge (APC) Rp 500.000 or 50 USD is charged for papers accepted after the process of review is complete. Authors will have to make the payment before the paper is uploaded.
