Author Guidelines

1. Primary nature of publications

  • The length of manuscripts or texts submitted for publication should be concise and complete. The manuscripts submitted for publication should neither be published elsewhere nor be under consideration for publication in another journal.
  • Articles should reflect the originality of research manuscripts. The International Journal of Studies in Psychology may consider all original research manuscripts submitted from work reports scientifically sound, researchable, and reliable. It should provide enough new knowledge in the field of psychological studies. Authors are advised to unnecessarily split their work into various pieces of similar manuscripts
  • Publications of case reports that can be published in the detailed results are considered as a single project. The case of reports in the psychological studies context should be fully described and concluded, relevant for the scholarship audience.
  • IJSPSY cannot accept an article if it is not the author's original work, has been published before, or is currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The article must not contain any libelous or unlawful statements or in any way infringe the rights of others. All authors must declare they have read and agreed to the content of the submitted article.

The main text of a manuscript must be submitted as a Word document (.doc) file. The manuscript consists of 5000 to 6000 words, is well-typed in a single column on A4 size paper, and uses 12 pt of Times New Roman. The manuscript contains an original work that could contribute to the highly scientific advancement.

The manuscript should contain the following section in this order:

  • Keywords

The author (s) should write alphabetically in English, 3-5 words or groups of words.

  • Introduction

The author (s) should explain the background, problems, and importance of the research, provide a brief literature review or theoretical framework related directly to the research, or previous findings that need to be developed. A balance must be kept between the pure and applied aspects of the subject. The introduction is presented in the form of paragraphs of approximately 1000 words.

  • Objective of the research

The author (s) should make a short paragraph explaining the research objective (s) or purpose (s), which describes what your research is trying to achieve and why you are pursuing it.

The author (s) should avoid repetitions in tables and figures and focus on the importance of the study's principal findings. In general, journal papers will contain three-seven figures and tables. The same data can not be presented as tables and figures. The author (s) ensure that results address the problem formulated, objectives, and research hypotheses. We highly suggest that the discussion focuses on why and how the research findings can happen and how they can be applied to other relevant problems.

  • Conclusion

The author (s) ensure that the conclusion is drawn based on research findings, formulated concerns, and research purposes. The conclusion is presented in one paragraph without a numerical form of expression. Explain your research contributions to the knowledge of science.

More or less, 80% of references for literature reviews should be the recent (up-to-date) journals published in the last ten years, but the rest of the 20 % can be cited from research reports or articles.
