In pursuit of its aims, the PJP publishes various types of articles: (a) regular research reports, (b) brief research reports, (c) theoretical review articles, (d) general articles on psychology in the Philippines, (e) book reviews, and other types of articles that may be invited and/or approved by the Editors. 

Regular research reports are original empirical papers that represent a significant addition to psychological knowledge in any of the major areas of psychology science. A regular research report has a word count of up to 8,000 (including references) and should include an abstract with a maximum of 200 words and 5-6 keywords.

Brief research reports are original empirical papers that either (a) replicate findings previously published in the international research literature, (b) validate theories, hypotheses, methods, and psychological instruments developed in other countries, or (c) present preliminary or exploratory findings that present innovations in theory, method, or analysis. A brief research report has a word count of up to 3,000 (including references) and should include an abstract with a maximum of 150 words and 5-6 keywords.

Review articles present either a new overview, a systematic review, and/or a meta-analysis of the literature on a research problem. Reviews may focus on Philippine research or on topics that have particular relevance to the Philippine social and cultural context; review papers may also cover other pertinent areas in psychological science. Review articles have a word count of up to 8,000 (including references) and should include an abstract with a maximum of 200 words and 5-6 keywords.

Book reviews provide critical commentaries on psychology books published in the Philippines, books authored or co-authored by Filipino psychologists, or edited books with contributions by Filipino psychologists. Book reviews are a maximum of 2,000 words in length; the reference list cannot exceed 5 items. These papers do not have abstracts.

Articles that do not fall under any of the types described above, but which fit the aims and scope of the PJP may be invited by or proposed to the Editors.

The PJP Editorial Board accepts proposals for a Special Issue (full issue, 6-8 papers) or Special Section (3-6 papers). A concept note (up to 5 pages) should be submitted to PJPeditor [at] yahoo [dot] com, and should include the following components:

 

  1. name, affiliation, and brief bio (200 words) of the Special Issue Editor(s)
  2. conceptual introduction and rationale for the Special Issue or Special Section
  3. proposed line-up of papers (with preliminary titles, authors/affiliations, and 150-200 word abstracts)
  4. proposed time line of the review and editorial process

 

Periodically, the Editors may also disseminate calls for submissions to special issues or special sections.

All manuscripts should follow the style of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th Edition); all prescriptions regarding the handling of references, tables, figures, headings and subheadings, abbreviations, symbols, among others must be followed. Permission from the copyright owner should be included for use of any figure previously published elsewhere. 

Only electronic versions of the manuscripts will be accepted; no submissions with hardcopies of the manuscripts will be accepted. Authors should email their submissions to PJPeditor [at] yahoo [dot] com.
Manuscripts must be prepared and submitted in Microsoft Word format. 

Authors should submit via email at least three separate document files:
       

  1. Title page: this contains the following: (a) title of manuscript, (b) running head, (c) author(s), (d) author affiliation(s), (e) contact information of the corresponding author including postal address, phone, and email address.

 

Acknowledgment of research funding or grant should be included in a separate page in this file, with the heading “Acknowledgments”. Indicate the complete name of the grant-giving body and reference number or ID of the grant. If applicable, other acknowledgments for contributions to the paper (e.g. reviewers of early drafts, institutions who supported data collection, etc.) may be included. The acknowledgments section should not exceed 75 words.

 

  1. Manuscript: authors should remove all personal information in the manuscript, and should ensure that the manuscript contains no information that may indicate the identity of the authors. All tables and figures (with relevant titles and captions) should be included in the file.

 

Authors should ensure that the manuscript has been checked for spelling and grammar; all references cited in text correspond with the Reference List and vice versa; and permission has been obtained for the use of any copyrighted material from other sources.

 

Cover letter: addressed to the Editor indicating the intention to submit the manuscript to the PJP and the type of article being submitted (i.e., regular research report, book review, etc.). The letter should also affirm that the manuscript being submitted has not been published in any form previously, and is not currently being considered for publication in any form elsewhere.

The PJP abides by the PAP Code of Ethics for Philippine Psychologists – Sec X. Research (refer to https://www.pap.org.ph/sites/default/files/code_of_ethics_pdf.pdf) and the National Ethical Guidelines for Health and Health-Related Research (refer to

http://www.ethics.healthresearch.ph/index.php/phoca-downloads/category/4...).

 

The manuscript must explicitly indicate that the study underwent research ethics review and obtained clearance or approval by an institutional ethics review board, preferably accredited by the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (if authors are affiliated with a local institution; refer to http://www.ethics.healthresearch.ph/index.php/accredited-ercs). If formal ethics approval was not obtained, the authors should indicate this in their cover letter to the Editor with an explanation (e.g., the authors’ institution does not have an accredited ethics review committee).

 

Authors must also declare any relevant conflict of interest (COI) in the cover letter to the Editor. A potential COI exists when the researcher has interests in the outcome of the research that can lead to a professional or financial advantage which may (in actuality or appearance) compromise the integrity of the research. For example, an author should declare that the program being evaluated in the study is copyrighted or owned by the author or the funding agency.

 

Whether or not there was formal ethics approval, the authors must explicitly describe in their manuscript the procedures they undertook to ensure the rights and welfare of human participants, especially with respect to the informed consent process (ensuring voluntary participation), mitigation of risks associated with research participation, and the maintenance of privacy or confidentiality of data.

Upon submission, the Editor or one of the Associate Editors evaluates the manuscript and determines whether it is suitable for peer review. For manuscripts that do not proceed to the peer review process, authors are notified within three to four weeks of submission. For manuscripts that are peer reviewed, authors can expect a decision approximately 90 days from submission. The editorial decision for such manuscripts shall be one of the following: (a) acceptance with minor revisions, (b) revise and resubmit, or (c) rejection.

The PJP implements a double blind peer review policy. It also implements a constructive peer review policy, wherein referees are encouraged to provide authors with detailed comments that would help authors improve their manuscripts for publication. 

Manuscripts that are accepted will be subject to copyediting to improve readability. Prior to actual publication, authors will be asked to review the pre-publication proofs of their manuscript, and to supply corrections and/or missing information.

The copyright of all published manuscripts is owned by the Psychological Association of the Philippines. The transfer of the copyright to the Psychological Association of the Philippines applies to all printed and electronic copies of the manuscript, and is affirmed by the authors and the Psychological Association of the Philippines in the copyright agreement forms
