Recommended guidelines for JPR Review papers:
1. There is no single, requisite format for the Review papers; however, authors should strive to adhere to a standard format from a premier journal in their respective fields.
2. There is no specific length requirement for a Review paper but most papers should be between 3000 and 4000 words.
3. Can use up to 6 display items - figures, tables, boxes etc.
4. Limit on the number of citations is 100 and contain <20% self-citations.
5. The scope of a Review Paper should be broad and not dominated by the authors' own research work.
6. Progress articles dealing with the authors' own research, as opposed to Review papers, should preferably not exceed 2000 words, 5 display items, and 50 citations.
7. All submissions are peer-reviewed to ensure factual accuracy, appropriate citations and scholarly balance.
7a. Authors might be requested to suggest/recommend 3 - 5 referees.
8. In-text citations - (Name, year)

For papers related to JPA:
Manuscripts, preferably in DOC or PDF formats, should be submitted to Editor-in-Chief at email@example.com. Each manuscript should be submitted as a single file, containing images and tables embedded into it. Should the manuscript be accepted for publishing, the authors will be asked to comply with the note citation system, which involves the use of author-date system, also known as the Harvard system. The citation is made up of the author’s or editor’s last name and the year of publication; e.g., (Smith 2011) or (Smith and Smith 2011), or (Smith et al. 2011) for citations of works comprising more than two authors. For each work cited in the text there is an entry in the alphabetically arranged reference list at the end of the manuscript. All the references must list the following: author, reference title, journal, book series or other publication source, volume, issue, page numbers and publication year (original or reissue). So, for example: Bateson, Gregory. 2011. Mind and Nature. Random House, New York, NY. There are no limits for the size of the paper, although contributions containing less than 25,000 words will be given priority in the selection process. The standard division of the paper content, ranging from Introduction to Results and Discussion to Summary, is encouraged, but the authors are not necessarily obliged to follow it. Both longer review papers and research studies and shorter letters and opinion papers will be considered for publishing. An abstract containing up to 200 words needs to be submitted together with the review and research studies.
