To satisfy US copyright laws, we MUST have a dated release of copyright. Your submission will serve as the dated release of copyright and upon submission, NO FURTHER ACTION is required.

As corresponding author, the moment you submit your manuscript, you automatically agree to the following contract for all authors.

“In consideration of Paris Scholar Publishing taking action in reviewing and editing my (our) submitted manuscript, the author(s) hereby transfer(s), assign(s), or otherwise convey(s) copyright ownership to Paris Scholar Publishing.  The author(s) declare(s) that the manuscript contains no matter that is, to the best of the author(s) knowledge, libelous or unlawful, or that infringes upon any US copyright.  In the event the manuscript is NOT accepted for publication, copyright reverts to the author(s).”

If additional questions arise, feel free to contact the journal offices.

The Copyright Clearance Center has produced an excellent first of its kind Copyright Basics Video to help educate faculty, students, and other prospective authors about copyright law. 


If the editor determines a manuscript’s status is either a “resubmit with changes” or an “acceptance,” it is immediately sent for statistical review to determine appropriateness of any statistical analyses.  That review usually occurs within 3-5 days. The statistical review will mostly check for soundness of design and statistical methods, with a recognition that analyses differ from statistician to statistician. At this time in the process, we may accept, request revisions or reject the manuscript.
