The Early View Publication of Vol. 3, No. 2 (October 2021) Has been Published, Enjoy it!
As a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, Psychosophia provides a platform for the publication of the most advanced scientific research in the areas of psychology, Islamic Psychology, and other disciplines. The journal welcomes original empirical investigations. For manuscripts with an innovative or weighty methodology section, supplementary on-line material outlining the methodology is welcome (e.g., equations, data-treatment, syntax code, example data). The papers may represent a variety of theoretical perspectives and different methodological approaches. The major criteria in the review and the selection process concern the significance of the contribution to the area of Psychology, Islamic Thought, and the intersection between critically psychological approaches and social humanities studies.
Rigor of Studies
Empirical research designs need to state the extent to which the studies are representative of a particular population. The authors need to state the hierarchical structure of the data (e.g., time-points nested in students, nested in schools) and explicitly state how they have addressed this structure in their analyses. Supplementary materials including data quality control, alternative models, explicit formulas used in statistical analyses and modeling are welcome. Prior publications based on the same project and/or data must be acknowledged, especially prior publications using the same or similar measures. The unique contributions of a given manuscript, as well as any overlap with prior publications based on the same project and/or data, must be stated explicitly
Experimental designs should report on effect sizes found in previous studies in the field, to form a basis for a priori power calculations (or simulations) for the authors' particular design. Statements of implementation fidelity and treatment need to be explicit. The authors should demonstrate that findings are not due to extreme cases or outliers.
Studies in which qualitative methods are used are required to outline sufficient/adequate/specific procedural explanation to ascertain whether the standards for validity and reliability of the reported data are met, and an adequate vocabulary for these needs to be adhered to consistently. Procedures for e.g., inter-observer reliability, triangulation and/or audit trails need to be transparent and thoroughly grounded in the literature. Overly descriptive studies are typically not accepted.
These submissions undergo a three-phase review process in which study rationale and methodology are considered prior to the research being undertaken.
