Submission Preparation Checklist
- As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Original work: The submission has not been previously published, nor has it been submitted (or will be submitted while under consideration at JSPP) to another journal for consideration. Prior to acceptance and publication in JSPP, authors may make their submissions available as preprints on personal or public websites (see Preprint Policy).
Acknowledging and citing previous work: Previous or concurrent publications of the author(s) based on the same or closely related research are properly acknowledged and cited. It is made clear in the manuscript in which way(s) it represents a novel contribution to warrant consideration for publication in JSPP. Note: Replications of previous work are explicitly welcomed if identified as such.
Authorship: All authors of the submitted manuscript are named in the submission/cover letter (and additionally will be named in Step 3 of the submission process). All authors of the submitted manuscript are aware of and approve its submission to JSPP. Contributions that fall short of authorship are mentioned in the Acknowledgments section of the submission/cover letter. (For criteria of authorship see the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, Standard 8.12, Publication Credit, of the American Psychological Association (APA). Responsibility for authorship decisions lies entirely with the authors.)
Consent for data storage: All authors of the submitted manuscript consent to the storage of their personal data transferred in conjunction with the submission and in accordance with the Journal's Privacy Statement.
Use of copyrighted materials: No copyrighted material is used unless that material has also been made available under a CC-BY license.
Ensuring a blind review: If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, authors have removed all personal information from the manuscript. The instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
Publisher guidelines: The submission complies with the PsychOpen Author Guidelines (largely based on the American Psychological Association's formatting guidelines).
