Volume 8 Issue 4

Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the January 2020 issue of IJELLS. We complete eight years of publishing. We haven’t missed a deadline or an issue. We take pride in our commitment to our purpose while founding it, that, it will be a platform for publishing catering to many who have found publishing still a far fetched dream.

The journal will go through major changes as we enter the ninth year of Publishing. We have some very interesting articles in this issue too. From the most experienced and accomplished contributors we close the other end of the range with young and innovative writers.
Spend some time, share it with your peers and come back to us with suggestions if any.

Happy Reading and Sharing!
