Video Tutorials:

JPSE uses the Open Journal System (OJS) to manage content and users. Here are several video tutorials for authors and reviewers who must log into the system to manage manuscripts. These videos are generic in nature so some parts my not match the JPSE system entirely, but do serve to orient the user facing the task of using JPSE's OJS format.

JPSE Author Guidelines follow the American Psychological Association's manual of style. Here are some basics of APA Style for authors and reviewers.

  • Basics of APA Style Tutorial - This video describes the basics of APA Style. For more detail you should refer to the formal manual published by the American Psychological Assocation. For more information on APA Style go to the APA Style website.

BROWSER RECOMMENDATON: In order to log in all editors, authors, and reviewers must use Firefox.  At this time Internet Explorer does not allow users to log into the OJS system.

For viewers, this site works best when viewed with the newest versions of the following browsers:  Firefox, Safari, Opera. It will also work with newer versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer 6 or below. Users have experienced some format issues with Internet Explorer 7 amd 8 because that browser is not compliant with the latest HTML and CSS standards. Firefox is generally recommended for most users because it is tends to be more secure and stable than most browsers.
