Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Journal's Author Guidelines. (If the references do not meet KJP's specifications, the manuscript will be returned to the author for necessary modifications, and will be forwarded to peer reviewers only after a new draft with proper references is submitted.)
- At least one of the authors is a member of Indian Psychiatric Society (Kerala Branch).
- The first author agrees that, if he/she withdraws the submission once the peer review process has started, or if he/she refuses to rewrite the manuscript in line with suggestions from the reviewers within the stipulated time, no further submissions from him/her will be considered by the Journal.
- The submission file does not contain the names of the authors or other identifying information.
The names and email addresses entered in this journal site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
