Review Process

JTPP encourages the author(s) to initially submit an abstract not exceeding 250 words which could be uploaded in JTPP website:; alternatively, the author(s) may send the abstract via email to:

Once the abstract is accepted, JTPP calls for the complete manuscript, preferably in the range of 6,000 to 8,000 words which based on the set guidelines, within the stipulated time frame, the author(s) may upload in JTPP website:; alternatively, the author(s) are also encouraged to submit the articles via email to:

While some articles, mostly the invited ones, are dealt with by the Editor immediately, articles in general would be invariably referred for blind review and might be sent back to the author(s) for necessary modifications, if any, for final acceptance.

Submission Guidelines

By submitting article(s) to JTPP in the prescribed manner, the author(s) accept the terms and conditions of the JTPP confirming that the submitted article(s) have not been previously published, nor be forthcoming in any journal or book both in print or electronic versions, and the author(s) own the copyright of the work or otherwise authorised by the copyright owner(s) to submit the article(s); the author(s) further warrant that the submitted article(s) are not currently under review at another journal(s) (electronic or print) and that the author(s) will not submit the article(s) to another journal(s) (electronic or print) until the editorial decision process gets over at JTPP.

Publication Ethics: JTPP follows the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). It also encourages gender-neutral language as far as possible, and discards colloquialisms, especially if linked to a particular national culture.

Originality and Plagiarism: The authors should ensure that the submitted manuscripts are the original works of the author(s), and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited/acknowledged and/or quoted. JTPP will follow COPE guidelines in suspected cases of plagiarism.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as a potential conflict of interest. If no conflict exists, the authors should state: The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest.

Fabrication and Manipulation of Data: A manuscript should contain only relevant and authentic citations. JTPP will follow COPE guidelines in dealing with suspected cases of data fabrication and manipulation.

When the article, after modifications, if any, is finally accepted for publication, author(s) would execute the publishing agreement under which the author(s) retain the copyright in the work but assign JTPP the sole and exclusive right and licence to publish for the full legal term of copyright.
