Editorial Procedure and Peer review

We have a very knowledgeable editorial and peer-review panel of experts on our team. The author's article is sent to the editor, who then conducts peer reviews. The editors ensure the validity, quality, structure, and intellectual content of the article. It is the editor's responsibility to identify and decide on options such as whether to accept, reject, format, modify, or return to the author to revise or transfer the file for the peer review process. Our editors are in charge of upholding the mission and scope of the journal by selecting papers that make new, original, and significant contributions to the author's knowledge. We assist our authors in every way possible in this field of study and ensure that every opportunity is used to get their articles published in the International Journal of Psychological Rehabilitation.

PreprintsPreprints are the author's revised version of a research paper that is posted on a public server before it is submitted to a journal for official peer review. According to journals, preprints of major research publications should be posted on preprint servers, authors' websites, or institutional websites. Preprints may be posted at any time during the peer-review process. Preprint posting is not considered prior to publication and has no bearing on consideration at this journal. It should be noted, however, that preprints may still be visible to reviewers and editors during the peer-review process. To avoid confusion, authors should make sure that any preprints they post are clearly labeled as such.
Article TypesDepending on the content of the article, all articles are assigned a type. This is beneficial to readers by informing them of the type of content to expect (original research, review, communication, and so on), as well as indexing services when applying filters to search results. This section, while not exhaustive, describes the most common article types. The final decision on which type should be assigned to a published article is made by the editor. Original articles, brief reports, methodologies, successful approaches, registered reports, case studies, short letters, literature, and review papers. Our journal will also publish timely editorials, commentaries, and perspectives that are controlled by our editor-in-chief. For submission details, click on the ‘submit paper’ button in the ‘For Authors’ section on our website in order to submit your collective research papers on psychology-related articles. Basically, articles are unique research papers. The work should present scientifically sound experiments as well as a significant amount of new information. The most recent and relevant references in the field should be included in the article. With a minimum word count of 5000 words, the structure should include the Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions (optional) & References. Specific instructions and templates can be found on the journal's web pages.
BRIEF REVIEW: Brief reviews are short but informative research work presentations that are believed important and should highlight the achievements in that particular area of research in which it is composed of usually figures graphs & tables. However, the research work presented should be authentic and unplagiarized. The word limit for this is a minimum word count of 2500 words is suggested.
CASE STUDIES: Case studies in psychosocial journals, provide detailed information on a psychiatric patient's symptoms and treatment or therapy for these problems. They typically describe new research findings that make a significant impact in the recovery of these vulnerable and psychiatric patients eventually, improvizing the diagnostic approaches practiced in the recovery of these mentally ill patients. Usually, case studies use a minimum word count of 2500.
CONFERENCE REPORTS: Conference reports usually document the activities that took place during the conference proceeding and virtual meeting events. It should contain only relevant information concerned with the meetings and discussions held at important events only. It should be a collective work of content with a minimum word count of 2500 words.
ESSAY: Essays are welcome if they show us a considerable weightage in the content that has proven material facts and figures. The structure should be well established with a minimum word count of 4000 words.
Manuscript PreparationPreparing a research article takes a long time. Consider spending days, if not months, writing a manuscript and then submitting it to a journal that isn't a good fit. Finding the correct Indexed journal target is therefore critical for an article's publication. Always ensure that your research paper falls within the scope of the journal. Article submission is the process of submitting a research paper or article to a publication agency's website for consideration for publication in international journals. At the International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation, we always welcome all types of researchers who are eager to publish their psychiatric articles and related topics covering aspects such as the effects and remedies involved in correcting a person's psychological health in society and transforming them into productive members of society by engaging them in the right way - code of conduct through counseling, rehabilitation, recreational activities, and any and all means necessary. 
We publish Articles, research papers, theses, review papers, and short papers on psychological aspects that influence a person's performance in society. It is an important step in the research process because it allows researchers to share their findings with the larger academic community and contribute to the advancement of their field. You can upload your research article work using the ‘submit paper’ link. It is critical to carefully consider which journal is the best fit for your work before submitting an article. Some factors to consider include the journal's focus and scope, the journal's reputation, and the journal that the audience is interested in. Once you've decided on a potential journal, you must adhere to our journal's submission guidelines. These guidelines will outline the specific formatting and structuring requirements for your article, as well as any other submission requirements. After preparing your peer-reviewed article in accordance with the guidelines, you will usually need to submit it via an online submission system. The detailed steps are enlisted in our ‘SUBMISSION PROCEDURE’ field, where you can follow these steps that help you in your article submission process. This system will allow you to upload your article as well as any supporting materials in your article research work that include appealing templates such as creative artwork, figures, graphs, pie charts, tables, spreadsheets, and so on. If your article is accepted for publication, it will typically go through an editing process in which the journal's editors will work with you to ensure that it is clear, concise, and well-written. The process of submitting an article to a journal can be complicated, but it is an important step in the research process. You can improve your chances of having your article accepted and published by carefully following the guidelines and collaborating with the journal's editors.
Investigate journal metrics such as CiteScore metrics, SJR, SNIP, JIF, H-index, and other indexing tools to learn more about their impact criteria. Keep in mind and take into account the journal's typical audience, reputation, and personal requirements. 
Authorship & AcknowledgmentsThe COPE authorship discussion is one of the main tasks of the International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation. It is to reduce unethical practices, this involves the identification of authors who submit their work unethically and then providing suggestions to the upcoming authors about the right code of conduct. Authorship is a structured method of demonstrating conceptual research work and credit. The two are inextricably linked. The accuracy with which authorship practices reflect actual contributions to the finished product should be evaluated. Authorship is critical for the reputation  & support of the individuals involved, as well as for improvizing the strength and reputation of their institution.
This is the case when each author lacks a funding source for their research publications. We've gotten inquiries from authors who have funding but are unable to write articles, as well as authors who can write articles but don't have the funds to publish them. We value and prioritize authors from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds, regardless of their position. Multiple authors can thus be added to a single research article, which can then be published online after mutual discussion and agreement. It is critical that those who contributed to a study be acknowledged as authors. Authorship disputes can be avoided by educating research groups on authorship standards and developing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the conduct and publication of research. COPE standards should be consulted in the event of authorship disputes or controversies. We make the authors' articles open-access, allowing other aspiring authors to publicly copy or distribute the research work established by them. Authorship is awarded to those who have made significant contributions to the conception, design, execution, and interpretation of ideas in their research work. All co-authors should be listed, and the corresponding authors should make certain that all contributing co-authors are included in the author's list. The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that co-authors have given final approval to the paper and have agreed to our publication policies. All authors and co-authors should include a written statement disclosing their funding contributions and any other substantive conflicts of interest that may have an impact on the outcome of their manuscript.
Many organizations, including medical colleges and peer-reviewed journals, have established authorship regulations. On core problems, these standards are similar, but they are changing over time primarily to account for the growing proportion of studies conducted by team members whose representatives have highly specialized roles. Various inducements have fostered authorship practices that fall short of these standards. Junior investigators may believe that including senior colleagues as authors will increase the credibility and likelihood of publication of their work, irrespective of whether those colleagues made significant intellectual contributions to the work.
Conflict of InterestConflict of interest exists when a participant in the publication process namely, the author, peer reviewer, or editor has a competing interest that could unduly influence his or her responsibilities in the publication process that involve the submission of manuscripts, peer review, editorial decisions, and communication between authors, reviewers, and editors. Before you submit your scholarly article to us, authors are encouraged to reveal any type of bias in the research article papers with respect to other similar authors, that may raise the question of bias in the submitted research work. Hence, a clear statement of examples of the types of competing interests the article must be declared should include the following as examples:
  • Financial ties

  • Academic commitments

  • Personal relationships

  • Political or religious beliefs

  • Institutional affiliations

There is a need to consider a wide range of competing interests that the individual processes as to whether they unduly influence his or her responsibilities in the publication process. Journals must articulate examples and definitions of what competing interests should be declared, moving beyond just financial conflict of interest. Because routine monitoring or investigation is not possible, journals rely on the disclosure of facts. This places an additional burden on the declarer to report thoroughly and accurately. It also implies that journals should ask about conflicts of interest in such a way that relevant conflicts of interest are likely to be reported. Journals have different rules for dealing with conflicts of interest and conflict of interest disclosures, and these must be communicated to all parties involved in the publication process.

Funding SourcesAll sources of funding for the research submitted to the journal must be declared by the authors. Authors should include the granting agencies' names and grant numbers, as well as a brief description of each funder's role. Only funding relevant to the submitted work should be mentioned, and authors are NOT required to provide a comprehensive list of every grant that supports them.
Originality & Plagiarism When drafting a manuscript, authors should ensure that the content is unique. When authors use someone else's ideas or words, they must properly credit or quote them. Turnitin, an online plagiarism detection tool, will be used to check all publications submitted to the International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation. If plagiarism is discovered during the screening or editorial process, such manuscripts will be rejected immediately. Plagiarism is a serious offense in academic publishing and can jeopardize both the authors' and the journal's credibility. As a result, it is critical to implement stringent measures to prevent and address plagiarism. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the research paper established by you is original and not fraudulent before submitting your research article. Even if it is unique, it is possible that your article will be rejected because it does not meet the guidelines of the indexed journal policies. Because the publisher claims to provide true peer review and legitimate publication, but they do not, the author should avoid fake peer review and fraudulent publishing practices. This will cause numerous issues for scientific progress. The fraudulent publisher is not fully aware of the subject's content, and when the article is subjected to true peer review, the defects in the article's content are very likely to be discovered. When an article with false and inaccurate information is published, it diverts attention and allows misinformation to enter the larger research community.
International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation starts the article publication process by assigning a Crossref and DOI number and gathering contact information (e-mail, ISSN, list of journals that we cover, and so on). We understand the insights of the article's authenticity and we get a picture of what needs to be taken care of for the article to be unique and legitimate, and we process the article through our panel of peers, editors, and experts who analyze, compare, and make the decision of getting your article published in legitimate, high-quality indexed journals.
Reporting StandardsThe authors of the original research article must display reliable statistics on the work done during their research. Authors are also expected to discuss the purpose of their work and the significance of their findings. An article should include enough information and references to ensure that the work can be reproduced. False or knowingly inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable.
We utilize very sophisticated metrics that measure the article quality and more importantly the significance of the research work carried out these are known as citation metrics. It measures the quality of content by giving the article the rank it deserves based on its authenticity, originality, and number of citations namely, the Journal Impact Factor (JIF). We use these metrics in order to make decisions about whether to publish the research work presented by the author in our internationally recognized journals or not. 
In our scholarly world, we keep referring to peer review as it involves correcting or cross-checking whether the research findings presented by our authors are indeed claimed to be the original research work or not by our panel of experts in that field of study. Our review process should include comments from reviewers, who make decisions on the article submitted. Our Peer-reviewers see that the research paper submitted has been properly done according to the discipline-specific and relevant to their field of study. We have different types of peer reviews that are available for different disciplines and research communities. 
As a trustworthy journal for many scholarly research articles in the field of psychology, the International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation follows guidelines according to ethics and community standards enlisted by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). 
Data access & RetentionAuthors may be asked to provide the raw/supplementary data for a paper that is under editorial review. The authors should be prepared to provide the public access to these data (if practicable) and to retain such data for a reasonable time after the publication. We make all articles published in our journal open access, which means that after publication in the International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation, research articles are freely available to the public without any payment or registration. Reading and applying the research can benefit anyone. The scientific community can freely exchange knowledge, creativity, and resources thanks to open access. The authors' articles will be available online immediately after publication, increasing the visibility, readership, and impact of your research. The Crossref and DOI assignment numbers make it simple to identify and retrieve the open-access research article.
Ethical ApprovalsEthics refers to the standards of morally right and wrong behavior of norms that researchers should adhere to. Ethics are the means by which we distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Respecting intellectual property, privacy, and confidentiality, as well as giving appropriate credit to the contributions of other researchers, are all part of ethical practices. Ethics are important components in making research more promising and trustworthy. The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) implements the research authors' ethics, which plays a critical role in the development of appropriate and unique research works that adhere to publication ethics.
The article is published after a lengthy process in which we ensure that every possible area of the article is effectively targeted and cross-checked with our metrics standards. Before proceeding to the next step of the publication process, we process the content appropriately through our panel of experts, covering all ethical values and practices implemented in the incoming article.
International Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation is responsible for ensuring that the norms and code of conduct are followed by the Crossref & DOI referencing and that the article work is progressing in the right direction while maintaining its confidentiality. We conduct peer-review to check for plagiarism in the content and follow all policies in the ethics formulated by the Committee On Publication Ethics (COPE), and when all of the article and ethical requirements are met.
