The Journal of Teaching English with Technology (TEwT) has implemented a number of changes with regard to maintaining and safeguarding the quality of publishable papers in the increasingly competitive and expanding Language-and-Linguistics journal-ranked Scopus category. From about late 2021 all papers that have been approved by both double-blind reviewers or by any external special-issue reviewers have had to undergo an additional third-blind review to be accepted for publication.  

In this third review stage, which is undertaken by a group of experienced reviewers, papers are not only assessed according to their academic rigor, but they are also evaluated in line with their potential to meet reader current interests and expectations. Moreover, by drawing on TEwT Scopus dashboard data, topical and popular research areas with higher citability and dissemination potential are analysed by the editorial team. A Q1-Scopus paper acceptance in TEWT is therefore a significant academic achievement. 

TEwT screens and rejects approximately 80% of its initial submissions. The second and third stage reviewer rejection rates are lower at about 60-70%. TEwT aims to screen papers within about 4 weeks, and the triple-blind review process may take up to 6-9 months in most cases. TEwT, however, has been receiving a growing number of submissions as a result of its topical research area and successes as a Scopus Q1 Journal, therefore, additional delays in reviewing occasionally occur.   

A rejection from TEwT is accompanied by feedback from the various reviewer stages, and this may form the basis on which to help the author(s) reflect and develop their ideas further. 

TEwT is also the top-ranked Scopus Journal in Language and Linguistics in Cyprus and Poland!
