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:

JTPP, once accepts the abstract after internal assessment, 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:

Peer-Review: JTPP would send all the submitted articles for ‘double-blind review’ by the best related scholar-practitioner as available in the JTPP database.

JTPP ensures that the entire peer-review process remains confidential and objective, and the reviewers, independent of journal publications, would have no conflict of interest; they would aim to evaluate the quality of work determining that the contemplative cutting edge research is rigorous, coherent and contributes to the discipline.

JTPP would collate the two external review reports and without, however, disclosing the identity of the reviewer(s), send a consolidated report to the author(s) for necessary modifications, if any, for final acceptance.

JTPP nevertheless reserves the right to reject any article said to be submitted with adaptation, if any, and the decision of the Editor-in-Chief would be deemed final and binding.

In spite of taking utmost care by both the editorial team and the contributors, in case of any error being noticed, JTPP undertakes immediate correction(s) in the e-Pub and MOBI; since printing is carried out invariably after 7 days from the date of release of the e-versions, modifications, if any, are, therefore, suitably accommodated in the print versions. In the event of any error still persists, JTPP will insert errata inside the print copies and conspicuously mention the revisions made.
