Peer-review is a significant action that must be carried out during the process of academic publication. Every paper submitted to LLIST is read by at least 1 reviewer who is an expert in his / her field. Reviewers provide input to the editor and associate editor to determine whether a paper is to be published or not. Reviewers also help the authors to improve their quality of writing by providing constructive advice. The manuscript will be sent to two reviewers anonymously (Single Blind Peer Review). 

Reviewers for LLIST are asked to read the paper handed to them meticulously and write detailed reviews. The paper evaluation process must follow several criteria:
