Editor in Chief: The Editor-in-chief of a journal has the responsibility to maintain guidelines for selecting and accepting papers submitted to IJPES. We believe that most of the guidelines offered are already understood and subscribed to by experienced researchers and academics.

When a manuscript is submitted to the International Journal of Psychology and Education Studies (IJPES), it first undergoes a preliminary check known as a desk review. The   Administrative Editor first evaluates all manuscripts submitted to journal. It is rare, but an exceptional manuscript or an invited paper can be accepted at this stage by Editor-in-Chief.

The manuscript that do not follow the format specified by the IJPES will be rejected at this stage.

ü  Inappropriate to IJPES Guidelines (i.e. Manuscript format is not appropriate),

ü  Lack of originality, novelty, or significance (i.e. Results that are not generalizable,

ü  Mismatch with the aims and scope of the journal (i.e. Topics that are not of interest to the journal’s   readership)

ü  Have poor grammar or English language

ü  Flaws in study design (i.e. Choice of a weak or unreliable method)

ü  Poor Writing and Organization (i.e. insufficient explanation of the rationale for the study, inadequate   description of methods).

During the evaluation stage,  please check for these qualifications for maintaining the quality of the manuscript:

ü  Early introduction of the general problem

ü  Precisely stated questions that are to be answered

ü  Presentation

ü  The merit of the study

ü  Significance of the problem discussed

ü  Justification of the research

ü  A brief summary of relevant literature and its implications for the research problem under study

ü  The relevance of the citation and its pertinence to the research problem including the time factor.

ü  Citations must provide the rationale for research and should also be a primary source.

ü  Relationship of the problem to previous research should also be made clear.
