The JAPR Editorial Board will:

  • Give unbiased assessment of each manuscript submitted for publication. It will be assessed on merit, regardless of the author’s race, religion, nationality, gender, seniority or institutional affiliation
  • Process submissions in as short a time as possible
  • Not disclose the identity of peer reviewers unless the reviewers choose to do so
  • Investigate any credible allegation of misconduct
  • Publish a notice of correction if conclusions or significant parts of an article are shown to be incorrect

The JAPR Board is committed to producing a high-quality journal to provide an accessible, affordable forum for postgraduate students at Australian tertiary institutions to publish their work.
