Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the new decade of IJELLS.

We are starting a new decade in publishing. We have the conviction to motor on. We have faced quite a few challenges in our journey in the past decade. Aiming for a publishing space in these times of high scrutiny and cryptic rules was a tough job. We have sustained these challenging conditions and that is a mark of quality. If you have a suggestion for improvement, kindly mail to,

International Journal of English: Literature, Language and Skills – IJELLS extends its service into publishing books. We have started the enterprise IJELLS Publishing. This is a platform where we help the authors self publish their work. Check out our webpage at to understand more.

Happy Reading and Happy Sharing!
