Submission Guidelines for Double-Blind Review

Authors submitting manuscripts to NET are required to adhere to specific guidelines to facilitate the double-blind review process:

1. Author Identification: Ensure that author names and affiliations are removed from the manuscript file to maintain anonymity during the review.

2. Acknowledgments: Any acknowledgments that could potentially reveal the authors' identity should be temporarily excluded during the initial review.

3. Citations and References: While citations to the authors' own work are allowed, they should be done in a way that does not immediately disclose the authorship.

The double-blind review process at NET underscores the journal's commitment to fostering an environment of scholarly integrity and contributing to the advancement of language education research. NET expresses gratitude for the dedication of authors and reviewers in upholding the highest standards of academic excellence.
