The papers sent to the editorial board must satisfy the condition of never have been published before in journals, books, brochures, bulletins etc.
Once the papers have been accepted to be included in The Romanian Journal of Psychology, Psychotherapy and Neuroscience, the publication rights are owned exclusively by I.R.S.C. and any future citation/publication/republication will cite the innitial source, RJPPN. The intellectual rights for the materials will still be owned by the specialists, they do not transfer to I.R.S.C (each time the article will be mentioned, the author will be mentioned too).
* By submitting the materials to the RJPPN address, you agree to the terms and conditions previously stated.
Selection System
Once we receive the papers, they will be redirected to those members of the scientific board whose professional activity and interests best match the subject of the article.
The preliminary phase is exclusively conducted by the coordinators of the Journal and refers to the subject of the paper and its compatibility with the policy of both the Journal and I.R.S.C.
If the feedback from the preliminary phase is positive, each paper will be analyzed by three specialists that will rate the paper according to the criteria accepted by the board. The final sum of points for each paper will be the selection criterion for the final content structure of the Journal. If the score is the same for two papers, they will be evaluated by two other members of the board.
On request, authors can receive feedback regarding the scores for their own paper. The final response regarding the admission of the paper will be conveyed to the authors on June 1st, 2011, together with the mention of whether the article has chances to be included in a further Issue of the Journal, if that’s the case.
Throughout the assessment period, the RJPPN representatives can require the authors to change part of the content of the paper, so that the article would have better chances to be included in the Journal.
