A manuscript's language quality and statistical reports must be of the highest caliber, and the author is responsible for meeting these requirements. The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to ask the author(s) for documentation that a statistician has read the article as well as a copy of the language editing report. Authors who are non-native English speakers are urged to have their manuscript(s) thoroughly edited by reputable language editing/firms like Wordvice, Editage, and AJE before submission. JERCPT only provides light copy-editing after the paper has been accepted for publication to make sure that manuscripts adhere to the journal's style model.

Results and Discussion (must address study ramifications, constraints, and ideas for additional research), Conclusion (must contain suggestions), and References (must include DOI numbers where available and URL of web documents with access date).
