All manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the form and style as outlined in the American Psychological Association Publication Manual (6th ed.).

They may not exceed 20 pages in length, including the cover page, abstract, references, tables and figures, using 11-point font. Manuscripts should include, on separate pages:

  • cover page with the authors' names and affiliations , author contact details (e.g., the name and address of the author to whom correspondence should be sent, and acknowledgments)
  • an abstract containing a maximum of 200-250 words, and up to 5 keywords
  • cover letter with assurance that the article submitted is not under review elsewhere and the researcher/researchers obtained informed consent from the participants.

Manuscripts should be double-spaced, including references, notes, abstracts, quotations, and tables. The title page should be followed by an abstract of 150 to 300 words. Tables and references should follow APA style and be double-spaced. Manuscript must be typed in Times New Roman font size 11-point, with 2.5cm margins all round. To sending a paper to JEPSS, it is necessary that manuscripts should not be simultaneously submitted to another journal, nor should they have been published elsewhere in considerably similar form or with considerably similar content.

All articles submitted will be reviewed initially by the editors, for appropriateness to JEPSS. Screening for plagiarism is the second step.  If the editor/editors considers the manuscript to be appropriate, it will then be sent for anonymous review. Final decision will be made by the editors based on the reviewers’ recommendations.
