Manuscripts submitted for consideration should first be prepared according to the journal’s required format and style specified by the eighth edition of MLA Handbook.

CLC only accepts the manuscript submitted by a single author, and the one submitted by two or more authors will be returned. Authors can log in by clicking on “Author Submission” button to track the status of submitted manuscripts. The review process for submissions involves initial screening, further review, and double-blind final peer review. The status of “under review” indicates that the manuscript has passed the editor’s screening and been assigned to the external reviewers for peer review. The status of “final review” indicates that the manuscript has been considered as usable by the editorial team, but still not necessarily accepted for publication, and some of them may need revising or resubmitting. Only the “accepted” status indicates the manuscript is officially selected for publication. Editors will contact authors via the editorial office email (
