Criteria for Publication Statement

Our goal is to publish novel research, even if it represents an incremental advance. While our primary focus is on ensuring sound research practices, including adherence to ethical standards and the use of robust, transparent methodologies both qualitative and quantitative, we recognize the value of incremental contributions to the field. We care more about the quality of the contribution an article makes than we do the size of that contribution. JIAPAC evaluates manuscripts based on how the research was conducted and reported.
