Frequency of Publication

IJLEAL is published biannually in June and December.


Language Use for Publication

IJLEAL accepts papers written in English and Malay language, however, the number of papers written in Malay is limited. We therefore encourage submission of papers written in English. This is to encourage researchers whose native language is Malay. These papers will be of interest to readers in Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, possibly in Singapore and southern Thailand, and other parts of the Malay-speaking world such as Sri Lanka and South Africa.



IJLEAL does not include proofreading as part of the publication process. All submitted papers must be proofread and meet the Standard English and Malay language for scientific writing before they can be accepted for publication. However, proofreading service is available for a cost. Please refer the Guide for Authors.


Cost of Publication
