Conflict of Interest

Gadjah Mada Journal of Psychology (GamaJoP) respects requests not to have the manuscripts peer-reviewed by those experts who may have a competing interest with the author(s) of a submitted manuscript. It is not possible for Editors to be aware of all competing interests; we therefore expect that reviewers would inform the Editor-in-Chief if they notice any potential competing interest during the course of review of a manuscript. Moreover, the reviewers are expected to inform the Editors or editorial office of the journal if they have a conflict of interest in carrying out a review of a manuscript submitted by any author/contributor of the manuscript.



To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submission to this journal, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. This involves the authors, editors, and reviewers (who upload documents as part of their review) checking to see if the following steps have been taken with regard to the text and the file properties:
  1. The authors of the document have deleted their names from the text and replace it with "Author".
  2. Author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file if the manuscript is written in a Microsoft Office document.
  3. Authors' names should also be removed from Document Properties found under File on Adobe Acrobat's main menu if the submission is made under pdf document.
