Manuscript Submission
IJeN manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the American Psychological Association (APA) Guidelines. Manuscripts should be no longer than 35 pages, including all elements (abstract, an opinions for practitioners, endnotes, references, tables, figures, appendices, etc.) formatted in Times New Roman, 12-point type, double-spaced with one inch margins.

Submissions should include the title of the manuscript, an abstract of approximately 150 words, and a list of 4 or 5 key words alphabetically on the title page but do not include the author(s) name on the title page. Since IJeN uses a blind peer-review process, please remove any indications of authorship in the body of the manuscript. The author(s) name, affiliation, and contact information should be listed on a separate page preceding the title page of the manuscript.
Manuscripts must be submitted for review in a widely accepted word processing format, such as Microsoft Word.

Notes are taken to the end of the conclusion, with a superscript number in the text referring to the note. Please do not use the automatic format feature in your word processing program for numbers and do not use the footnote feature to embed endnotes.

Each appendix should be placed following the reference section on a separate page. Tables or figures must be on a separate page at the end of the manuscript, corresponding to the placement within the text. Indicate placement of tables, figures, etc. in the text as follows: insert the sentence, [Table 1 here], and leave one blank line space before and after a table. Tables should be formatted in a word processing program and figures should be produced in one of .doc, .ppt, .gif, .jpg, and .jpeg formats. Original source files should be provided for graphics in jpeg files, excel spreadsheets, etc.

URL citations in notes or references must include the article's or website's author/company, the name of article or website, and date of the article or last website revision.
Please note that headings should appear as follows in 12-point type:
  • A-heads are bold, upper and lower case, align left, one blank line space above and below
  • B-heads are bold Italics, upper and lower case, align left, one blank line space above and below

Ethical Standards

Editors' Responsibilities
Editors have final authority to reject or accept any article and should be objective and fair during the decision-making process. All actions must be free of discrimination on grounds of gender, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, and ethnic or geographical origin of authors. There should be no conflict of interest that interferes with an editor's decision to accept or reject articles. Editors must preserve the anonymity of peer reviewers. In the event of ethical misconduct, editors must act in accordance with the procedures stipulated below and policies of the Society when appropriate. When errors are found, the editor should handle publication of a correction or retraction.
Reviewers' Responsibilities
Reviewers should provide objective feedback, in a timely manner. Comments should assist author in improving the quality of the manuscript. Reviewers should be aware of any, and all, conflicts of interest (financial, institutional, or affiliation with research or author) and notify the editor of the situation. Peer reviewers must maintain the confidentiality of manuscripts; he or she should not hold or copy the article. At any point, reviewers must notify the editor if content of the manuscript under review is similar to that of another published or submitted article.
Authors' Responsibilities
Authors are expected to adhere to basic standards of professional ethics that are common in all areas of scholarly publishing. This basic standard includes confirming that that the manuscript is not under consideration or accepted for publication elsewhere. Authors must fully cooperate with the editor or publisher to publish any corrections, clarifications, retractions, and/or apologies, if necessary. If portions of content in the manuscript are closely related to any other submitted or published article, authors must provide the editor with a copy of said work.

All listed authors must have significantly contributed to research; these individuals must confirm all data in article are real and authentic. Authors are responsible for maintaining and providing access to accurate records of data associated with, or used in, the manuscript. Authors must acknowledge any potential conflict of interest (real or apparent) that could potentially influence his or her responsibilities at any stage of the publication process.
Plagiarism Detection
Authors must ensure that a manuscript submission is an entirely original work. If an author has used words or work from another source, these sections must be cited or quoted appropriately.
Publisher Responsibilities
The publisher should maintain guidelines created by the Editorial Board and those outlined in the Ethical Standards. In the event of an error or ethical infraction, the publisher must be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions, and/or apologies. There should be no fraudulent data or plagiarized section published at any time. The publisher must never allow any conflict of interest to interfere with intellectual or ethical standards.
Authorship of the paper should only include individuals who made significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the article. All individuals who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Others, who have participated in certain aspects of the project, should be acknowledged as contributors.
Changes to Authorship
    Before an accepted manuscript is published in an online issue:
  • * Requests to add, remove, or rearrange author names must be sent to the Managing Editor by the corresponding author of the accepted manuscript, and must include:
        - The reason a name should be added, removed, or rearranged
        - Written confirmation (email, letter, or fax) from all authors confirming the change. If authors are being added, the individual being added must also provide written confirmation.
  • * The Managing Editor will forward requests sent by a different author (not corresponding) to the corresponding author, who must adhere to the following procedure:
        - Managing Editor will inform the Journal Editors of the request
        - Manuscript publication (for online issues) will be suspended until authorship is finalized
  • * If the accepted manuscript has already been published online, any requests to add, remove, or rearrange author names will follow the procedures outlined above. This action may result in a corrigendum.
Procedures for Ethical Misconduct
Anyone may identify and bring unethical behavior to the attention of the editor and publisher at anytime. Ethical misconduct may include, but is not limited to, the examples outlined in the sections above. All claims of misconduct will be taken seriously and treated in the same way. In all cases, the author will have the opportunity to respond to any allegation. The editor should make the initial decision and gather evidence; he or she will consult with the publisher if necessary or appropriate. The editor and publisher, if needed, will determine whether notifying the employer(s) is appropriate. Minor infractions may be handled without widespread consultation. Serious infractions may require that the employer(s) of the accused to be notified. Consultation with a limited number of experts, during an investigation, is warranted if the editor or publisher finds it necessary.
Permission to reproduce copyright material, for print and online publication in perpetuity, must be cleared and if necessary paid for by the author. Authors will be required to sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement (CTA) for all papers accepted for publication. Signature of the CTA is a condition of publication and papers will not be passed to the publisher for production unless a signed form has been received.
