Editorial Guidelines

Guidelines for authors
Authors are able to register and submit items to the journal directly to JPPS (ukaaz@yahoo.com). The author is asked to upload the item, as well as provide metadata or indexing information associated with the item, to improve the search capacity for research online and for this journal. The author is also able to accompany an item with Supplementary Files in the form of datasets, research instruments, or source texts that will enrich the item, as well as contribute to more open and robust forms of research and scholarship.

Single MS Word Document file containing Title page, Abstract, Manuscript (MS Word file) should be submitted with every manuscript to identify the person (with address and mobile number) responsible for correspondence concerning the article. This letter should make it clear that the final manuscript has been seen and approved by all authors. JPPS and our editors expect that all authors will disclose any commercial associations they have that might give rise to a conflict of interest in connection with the submitted article.

Guidelines for editors
All manuscripts including research and review articles sent for publication in JPPS are strictly and thoroughly peer-reviewed by experts. The Managing Editor of the journal will perform an initial editorial and plagiarism check of the manuscript’s suitability upon receipt. The associate editors will then organize the peer-review process performed by independent experts and collect at least two review reports per manuscript. We ask our authors for adequate revisions before a final decision is made. The final decision is made by the Editor-in-Chief of a journal or the Guest Editor of a Special Issue. Accepted articles are subjected to the copy-edited, proofread and layout edited. Note that your recommendation is visible only to journal editors, not to the authors.
