Prospective authors who do not already have a username and password should register as authors (see the 'Online Submission' details above) and then download the SLTE Guidelines for Submission which you will find in PDF format. All articles are peer-reviewed. We will acknowledge your submission upon receipt. One round of the peer review normally takes about three months, and we will communicate an editorial decision soon after receiving a complete set of reviews. If your article is accepted, we will send you further instructions for submitting the final manuscript of your article. For accepted manuscripts, the time between submission and publication is normally 12 to 18 months. Note that at the present time, SLTE does not publish book reviews.
