January 18th, 2019 – Recently, the managing team of The International Journal of Language Education and Applied Linguistics (IJLEAL) has successfully participated in a workshop at Rocana Hotel, Kuantan. IJLEAL is a double blind peer-reviewed, open access scholarly journal which is published twice a year by UMP Publisher. Led by Dr. Hafizoah, IJLEAL Editor-In-Chief, the workshop is designed to unveil and enhance IJLEAL dynamism in its journal management.
Eight productive sessions were conducted during the three-day workshop. Among the crucial sessions was on the use of the newly instigated journal management system, Open Journal Systems (OJS). The sessions’ principal aim was to allow the editorial team members to gain hands-on experience of working with OJS, specifically with the new OJS 3.
Another important session was on the journal indexing. With the team’s continuous efforts, IJLEAL has been indexed by Ulrichweb and MyJurnal, and is now gearing towards Scopus and other reputed indexing databases. It is hoped that by adhering to international standards, IJLEAL can be raised internationally and provide infinite contribution in the academic world.
IJLEAL is seeking for more potential authors and manuscript reviewers for the upcoming publication. For more information, please visit the website at http://journal.ump.edu.my/ijleal
