Ensuring Scientific Integrity: an Outline of ITJ’s Peer Review Process and an Invitation to Submit Articles
Regina Ursula Hess, Ph.D.

In my role as Head of the Board of Reviewers of the Integral Transpersonal Journal (ITJ), I would like to briefly outline the aims of the peer review and the process involved.

Why Peer Review?

Articles in scholarly journals contribute to the fund of scientific knowledge in a particular field. To ensure that the work is original, valid, and significant, scholars in equivalent fields review the manuscripts submitted. Since the last century, scholarly peer review has been the major mechanism by which the quality of research and academic publications is judged. Peer review is based on the concept that peers with similar expertise may critically review the quality of each other’s work. As part of the publication process, it can be a valuable tool for improving the quality of a manuscript. Peer review has its limitations, and has been accused of being highly subjective and even a vehicle for exploiting or intimidating authors. To reduce these dangers, we at ITJ have implemented a commonly-used process of peer-review that ensures quality, understanding and fairness between reviewers and contributors and involves the reviewer and author working dialogically in several stages on the development of the final manuscript for publication. The principle that we at ITJ adhere to is that peer review should be responsive, competent, unbiased, confidential, secure, constructive, and responsible. During the review process, the document is seen as a confidential text owned by the author. The peer review primarily focuses on eliminating plagiarism, clarification of terms and writing, and general improvement of the flow of the text. Special support is given to contributors having English as their second language. We also assist with the application of the citation guidelines and referencing system of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA, 6th edition, 2010). Information about the reviewing process and the style guide is available for download on ITJ’s website. However, the peer-review process is not static, it is a lively endeavor that will continue to develop over time.
