SCOPE AND AIM OF THE JOURNAL
a. Scope of the Journal
The International Journal of Studies in Psychology (e-ISSN: 2710-2327, p-ISSN: 2710-2319) is a blind peer-reviewed,fully open-access journal providing an advanced platform and opportunities for psychological-related research outputs. It relies on vast theoretical, practical, and thematically scholarly psychology, including unpublished research in human behaviour issues. These include indigenous psychology, mental well-being, Community developmental psychology, educational psychology, psycholinguistics, and inclusive education.
The IJSPSY welcomes original, theoretical, conceptual, and empirical articles that offer a review and publication that disseminate the research findings in holistic areas of psychology such as Applied Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Industrial Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Educational Psychology, Psycho-linguistic, Experimental Psychology, Critical Psychology, Indigenous Psychology, Social Psychology, etc. The IJSPSY focuses on creative innovations of research methodology at all stages and is committed to providing theoretical and practical experience for all those involved in these fields. The scholarly articles must be prepared, treated, and interpreted with the same academic rigour expected of academic research.
b. Aim of the Journal
The IJSPSY aims to discover cross and multidisciplinary creative and innovative theories, articles, methodologies, comprehensive reports, and case studies in Psychology by inviting scholars, professionals, librarians, and others to publish original research that addresses current issues informed by the best practices. The IJSPSY is an influential trend toward responsible research and innovation. The globalisation of research, the emergence and inclusion of new or previously excluded stakeholders, and the advent of open science are reshaping the scope and nature of scholarly publishing.

Selection of manuscripts
The publisher developed a quality-checking phase of the manuscripts' choice for the journal.
Phase 1: Basic Check
The editor or editorial assistant checks the received manuscripts initially to determine their fitness to the journal’s aims and scope. All manuscripts that do not fit the journal’s scope will be rejected and/or advised to be submitted elsewhere.
Phase 2: Similarity Check
All manuscripts submitted to IJSPSY will first be checked for plagiarism with Turnitin. Turnitin matches the rate of similarities to previously published documents, and all manuscripts displaying a reading above 10% (including self-plagiarism and dishonesty) will be rejected.
Phase 3: Peer Review
The IJSPSY uses a double-blind system to peer-review the manuscripts issued from Phase 2. Both reviewers’ and authors’ identities are made anonymous. Our reviewers are experts in the specific field (One editorial staff member and three external reviewers). The review process takes 4 to 8 weeks. A probable second round of peer review may be initiated in some cases if editors and reviewers recommend it.
Phase 4: Acceptance Result/Rejection Decision
The acceptance of an article is based on the average score provided by various peer reviewers. The reviewers mark a submitted manuscript on four scales: Excellent (4), Good (3), Moderate (2), and Poor (1). A manuscript is accepted for publication with an average score of not less than 2.5. However, a manuscript with a score higher than 2.5 may be rejected when an editor or reviewer thinks it is unsuitable for publication.
