Litera is open to submissions twice a year, for one month each, beginning May 1 and November 1. After each submission deadline, manuscripts undergo an initial screening by the editorial team during the following month, and the peer-review process starts for manuscripts deemed suitable for the journal.

Manuscripts that match the formal rules are assigned to (at least) two national/international referees for the double-blind peer review process, and the manuscripts accepted by the majority of the referees and the editorial board's final inspection go through the publication process.

During November 2024, Litera will accept submissions for the June 2025 and December 2025 issues.
