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.
  • 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.

Revised Manuscripts

  • For major revisions, the authors must provide a letter addressing each of the reviewers’ comments separately and in point form by first recording the reviewer's comment and following it with the author's response.
  • The author must track all changes made in the revised manuscript.
  • The new drafts should be submitted at this website, under the control panel area for the original submission, using the "Upload Author Version" option under the "Review" tab.

Proofs

The Editors reserves the right to correct errors in grammar, spelling or punctuation, to clarify obscurities and remove redundancies, to improve infelicities of style, to enhance or change the way the paper is organized, and to ensure that the paper (text and graphics) conforms to the Journal’s requirements. No major changes will be made without consulting the author.
