Ethical Principles and Standards

All authors submitting articles to CRRPP are required to comply with the ethical standards published by the American Psychological Association and the Turkish Psychological Association.

Manuscripts that do not comply with publication ethics are sent back to the author without being evaluated after being reviewed by the editorial board.

Each author is obliged to comply with the following ethical rules.

The articles to be sent to CRRPP must be original and not previously published elsewhere. If the submitted study is produced from a thesis, oral or poster presentations, this should be stated by the author as a footnote on the first page of the article. If study has been presented in a scientific congress, the congress information and the type of presentation (oral or poster) should be stated.

Before submitting an article to the journal, the corresponding author (if any) must obtain approval from all other authors.

The authors are responsible for all the thoughts and opinions expressed in the articles.

The order of the authors should be determined before the manuscripts are submitted. The copyright transfer form must be signed in this order. After the article is accepted for publication, changes cannot be made in the author orders.

The data of published research articles should be kept by the authors for at least five (5) years. If it is necessary, analysis files and data can be requested from the authors.

The authors are required to inform their participants before their research and to obtain their consent by giving an informed consent form. In addition, authors should report potential conflicts of interest to the journal. When it is determined that even one of the ethical principles specified in an article is violated, the editorial board reject to study. If an ethical violation is detected in a published study, the article is withdrawn.

All studies submitted to CRRPP are examined with plagiarism checker programs. If the plagiarism rate (excluding the references at the end of the article) exceeds 20 per cent, the manuscript is rejected without being included in the review process.

After the acceptance of the manuscript, the copyright transfer form must be filled in and signed by the corresponding author and sent to CRRPP via e-mail. The copyright of the articles is transferred to CRRPP, with this agreement. CRRPP does not charge any fee from the authors for manuscripts submitted or accepted.

In research articles that require ethical committee permission, information about the permission (ethical committee name, decision date and number) should be included in the method section and also on the last page of the article.
