JEPS is committed to publishing original articles that adhere to research ethics as described by international research associations such as APA. The journal adopts a full double-blind review process to ensure confidentiality. Editors are expected to review manuscripts based on its intellectual contribution and should not involve any bias (related to gender, citizenship, race, or any form of discrimination) on their decision to accept/reject a manuscript. No information is disclosed related to the submitted manuscript except when necessary (e.g., during the review process). Editors and reviewers cannot use unpublished manuscripts in their own work and should not take the advantages of any ideas from these unpublished manuscripts. In addition, the reviewers should adhere to the publication ethics and help in providing scientific review of the manuscripts. The reviewers need to withdraw from reviewing any manuscript that they feel unqualified to review. The reviews should focus merely on the scientific components of the research and need not to show any personal criticism. Reviewers need to report any possible plagiarism to the journal editor and provide evidence for any identified ethical concerns in the manuscripts. Authors take full responsibilities of the content of their manuscripts and should adhere completely to the research ethics in all steps of their research process. The authors need to present full description of their research procedure to allow others for replication. They need to provide access to the raw data related to their submitted manuscripts, if requested. Authors need to avoid any kind of plagiarism and use APA citations to reference any cited materials, ideas or any use of other people’s work. The authors are required not to include any one in the authorship unless he/she has contributed significantly to the manuscript. The authors, in contrast, should not exclude those people who have made significant contributions to the preparation of the manuscript.  The Journal is not responsible for opinions printed in its publications; they represent the views of the individuals to whom they are credited and are not binding to the Journal.
