Submission is temporarily closed

The publication backlog has surpassed our promised deadline due to the sharp increase in paper submissions to Studies in English Language and Education (SiELE) Journal. We do not want to postpone the publication of authors' high-quality research, therefore, starting on March 2, 2023, we will not be accepting new submissions to SiELE. We will resume accepting submissions after the September 2023 issue has been processed. All of the papers that have been considered in our system are currently being processed attentively. We kindly request the authors' understanding in this matter. We sincerely regret any inconvenience we may have caused and truly appreciate your support of our journal.

The 69th TEFLIN International Conference in conjunction with the 3rd English Education International Conference will be held on September 22-24, 2023 with hybrid mode at Universitas Syiah Kuala, Banda Aceh, Indonesia. For more information, please follow this link:

We were notified that some individuals have promoted Studies in English Language and Education in some social media groups and promised publication to articles in one month in SiELE. We would like to clarify that they are not associated with us in any way, and the promise of one month publication is simply misleading. We only publish articles three times a year, and we strictly follow the review process as explained in SiELE's Author Guidelines.
