Peer Review Policy

The "Journal of Political Stability Archive" (JPSA) is committed to publishing high-quality, original research that contributes to the understanding of political stability. This policy outlines the peer review process for all submitted manuscripts.

2. Peer Review Process

All submitted manuscripts undergo a double-blind peer review process. This means that the reviewers' identities are not revealed to the authors, and the authors' identities are not revealed to the reviewers.

3. Selection of Reviewers

Reviewers are selected based on their expertise in the relevant area of research. The editor-in-chief, in consultation with the editorial board, selects reviewers who have published relevant research and have a strong understanding of the field.

4. Review Criteria

Reviewers are asked to evaluate manuscripts based on the following criteria:

  • Originality: Does the paper make a significant and original contribution to the field of political stability?
  • Methodology: Is the research design sound and appropriate for the research question?
  • Analysis: Is the data analysis rigorous and convincing?
  • Interpretation: Are the findings clearly interpreted and well-supported by the evidence?
  • Writing: Is the paper well-written, clear, and concise?

5. Revision and Resubmission

Authors may be asked to revise their manuscripts based on the reviewers' feedback. Revised manuscripts are then sent back to the reviewers for evaluation.

6. Publication Decisions

The editor-in-chief, in consultation with the editorial board, makes the final decision on whether to publish a manuscript. The decision is based on the reviewers' feedback and the editor's assessment of the manuscript.

7. Ethical Guidelines

JPSA adheres to the highest ethical standards in academic publishing. Authors are expected to comply with all relevant ethical guidelines, including those on plagiarism, authorship, and data fabrication.
