After the submission deadline of each call for papers, manuscripts submitted to the Arab World English Journal will go through an internal review. If submitted papers meet the basic requirements of AWEJ they are sent out for double-blind review from experts in the field. Our reviewers are expected to review articles and return their reviews within 8 weeks of having received this. It is common for reviewers who recommend acceptance to also make this conditional on addressing possible errors or issues. If your reviewers make this recommendation, then you will be given the opportunity to adequately respond to their feedback by a required date. This entire review process will take anywhere between 3- 4 months after the submission of the manuscript. The editor’s decision is final.
