Publication Policy

Twice a year, the call for papers is announced for the issues of Spring and Fall (in the months of March and September)

Acknowledgment and Declaration Form: Confirmation is made via sending an acknowledgment form in case the research paper is part of a project funded by an agency, or some people have provided any assistance/ support. Submission of a manuscript to Al-Basirahimplies that the work submitted has not been published before; and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors are required to express this in a prescribed ‘Declaration Form’.

Publication Fee: In accordance with the Policy for NUML Research Journals (2020), the authors have to pay a partial amount of the total processing/publishing cost of an article borne by the National University of Modern Languages. However, guest authors (scholars of International Repute) will not be charged fee for submitting a research paper. The fee paid at any stage will be non-refundable if a paper fails peer review.
