Author Guidelines

Interested in submitting to this journal? We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process. You may download our Template here.

Submitted manuscripts will be assigned to an editor or associate editor who will manage a peer-review of the manuscript. The editor will make a decision based upon the reviewers’ comments and overall assessment of the manuscript. The policy of IJPIS is that the editor should deliver this decision within three months from the manuscript submission date. Authors retain all copyrights - authors will not be forced to sign any copyright transfer agreements but IJPIS will permit re-use of the published material without modification given proper accreditation to the authors. IJPIS has no article processing charges for authors.
