Peer Review Process

Tutur operates a peer review process and promotes double blind reviewing. Tutur receives many more submissions than can be published. It will be reviewed by some expert of language and literature from several universities in different countries. To be published in this journal, a paper should meet general criterias:

provides strong evidence for its conclusions
should be a research result or literature studies in language and literature field
ideally, interesting to researchers in language and literature field and other related disciplines.
The paper submitted in the journal must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Every paper submitted will be scanned for plagiarism before it is sent to the reviewer.

Double blind review
In this type of peer review the reviewers don't know the identity of authors, and vice versa. This is the most common form of peer review amongst social science and humanities journals.

Research is judged fairly, keeping bias out of the equation
Author and reviewer benefit from some level of protection against criticism

Anonymity isn't guaranteed, as it could be fairly straightforward to discover the identity of the author (either because of the area of research, the references or the writing style)
Some argue that knowledge of the author's identity helps the reviewer come to a more informed judgement - and that without this the review suffers
