Please prepare your articles according to APA Format–7th Edition
OVERVIEW–The American Psychological Association (APA) style is widely accepted in the social sciences and other fields, such as education, business, and nursing. The APA citation format requires parenthetical citations within the text rather than endnotes or footnotes. Citations in the text provide brief information, usually the name of the author and the date of publication, to lead the reader to the source of information in the reference list at the end of the paper.
Review process
Each paper is first reviewed by the Excutive manager on the criteria of minimal “fit” (whether it fits the focus and scope of IEEPJ)), “quality” (whether the paper is both methodologically and conceptually sound) and “contribution” (whether the paper has advanced our understanding of evolutionary educational psychology in the global context).  Once the submission passes this initial screening, it will be assigned to reviewers as a double blind review process.
Iranian Evolutionary Educational Psychology Journal is committed to meeting and upholding standards of ethical behavior at all stages of the publication process. We follow closely the industry associations, such as the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) that set standards and provide guidelines for best practices in order to meet these requirements. Below is a summary of our key expectations of editors, peer-reviewers and authors.
Also to avoid plagiarism in published articles this journal use the iThenticate software that analyses the manuscripts and report the rate of plagiarism in percent. As a rule if a manuscript has the plagiarism more than 30% the author have to rephrase and para-phrase the suspected sentences. If the plagiarism rate exceed more than 60% the manuscript will be rejected without external review.

To prevent the information on potential conflict of interest for authors from being overlooked or misplaced, mention this information in the cover letter. Authors must identify any potential financial conflicts of interest before the review process begins.

The following would generally be regarded as potential conflicts of interest:
1. Direct financial payment to an author for the research or manuscript produced by the sponsor of a product or service evaluated in an article.
