The Journal of Modern Languages (JML) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics at the University of Malaya, Malaysia. Founded in 1983, the JML is dedicated to the publication of significant research findings of an empirical, experimental or conceptual nature in the broad field of modern language studies.

Focus and Scope: The JML welcomes papers in (but not restricted to):

  • Applied Linguistics
  • Corpus Linguistics
  • Descriptive Linguistics
  • Discourse Studies 
  • General Linguistics
  • Sociolinguistics
  • Translation and Interpretation

Peer-review Policy: Manuscripts submitted to JML first undergo an internal review by one of the editorial board members whose research niche falls within the focal point of the manuscript. It is followed by a double-blind review process. As regards the originality and similarity index, manuscripts are checked via the Turnitin software. However, in our experience, there have been cases of plagiarism which the software has failed to detect. In these cases, if the editor and/or reviewers doubt the originality of any part(s) of the work under review, the Editor-in-Chief's decision is final.
