Manuscript preparation

Please read and consider the instructions below before submitting your article. Articles must be between 6,000 and 10,000 words, including references.
Three separate documents should be uploaded during submission:

  • title page

    The title page must include the following elements: title, authors (names, affiliations, up-to-date postal addresses and emails), specify the corresponding author, summary and 5 keywords in French, title, summary and 5 keywords in English. The file should be named "Title page".

  • blind version

    Only the blind manuscript is visible to the reviewers and must imperatively be cleaned of elements allowing the identification of the authors of the manuscript. Blindness is the removal of all file metadata and information in the text of the manuscript. To delete the metadata from the Word file in Windows, follow the procedure below: right click on the file icon \ choose "Properties" \ select the "Details" tab \ click on the "Delete properties and personal information" link "\ Click on the radio button "Remove the following properties from this file " \ click on the" Select all "button \ Click on" OK ".

  • non-blind version

    The non-blind manuscript is close to the final version as it will be published in the journal. It must then contain the following elements: title, names and affiliations of the authors, abstract and 5 keywords in French and English, biographies of the authors comprising approximately 150 words, and the body of the article. The file must be named "Non-blind manuscript".

STRUCTURE OF THE MANUSCRIPT: RIPCO favors an academic structure adapted to the methodology used. The manuscript should include the following elements: abstract, introduction, theoretical framework, methodology, results, discussion, limits, contributions, perspectives, conclusions, references, and appendix (if necessary).

LAYOUT: The journal limits the constraints of formatting manuscripts during the review process. Authors are nevertheless requested to respect the following instructions:

Times New Roman, size 12; A4 ( 8.27 x 11.69"), line spacing, 1.5.
Parts, subparts, etc. are numbered (i.e, 1., 1.1., 1.1.1), not exceeding more than three levels.
Diagrams, tables, etc. are inserted into the text, numbered and referenced in the manuscript before they appear. The pages must be numbered.

MAIN TITLE: The title is the most important part of any manuscript. Two titles will be required when submitting a manuscript: the full title of the manuscript and a short title (running title). The main title of the manuscript should be brief but catchy and with enough information to identify a unique contribution. It is not recommended to use a full question or phrase, but rather to mention the behavior(s) studied and use keywords that readers can search for easily.

RUNNING TITLE: The abbreviated form of the main title appears at the top of each page of an article. Its purpose is to guide readers through the publications of the manuscripts (print or digital version). This title must have a maximum of 50-to-60 characters, including spaces. It can resemble the content of the main title or only include what the authors deem most important to emphasize. The current title is optional if the main title is already short.

SUMMARY: The summary provides an overview, highlights the manuscript’s key points, and helps the reader decide if they want to read the full paper. Abstracts are the backbone of a research paper because many journal editorial boards select manuscripts only on the basis of abstracts. The content of a summary depends on the type of research. Typically, it is a paragraph of about 250 words that describes the main aspects of the entire manuscript in a prescribed order, including: the general purpose of the study and the research question(s), research design and methodology, data analysis approaches. Submissions should also highlight the originality of the manuscript as well as the main findings, conclusions or trends identified, theoretical, methodological and / or managerial contributions, limitations, and the implications for future research. The summary should make sense regardless of the article and therefore should not contain bibliographic references.

KEYWORDS: The choice of 5 relevant keywords ensures that the manuscript is tracked by search engines and indexing services and, therefore, the visibility of the journal will increase on a national and international level. Our website offers the most commonly used keywords RIPCO ( ) and the most frequent keywords of the 7 best international journals of organizational behavior (http: //

CHECKING CITATIONS AND REFERENCES: Please check carefully that in-text citations and references comply with the APA Styles. To check the rules specific to citations, please visit the Citation rules page on the journal's website. To check the rules specific to this reference style, please visit the How to write references page of the journal's website. Please also check carefully that there are neither orphan citations nor orphan references (i.e., a reference corresponds to at least one in-text citation and an in-text citation corresponds to a reference at the end of the manuscript).

FOOTNOTES: The APA reference style doesn’t recommend the use of footnotes and endnotes. Consequently, the use of footnotes should be used sparingly throughout the document. Such a layout integrating footnotes and endnotes is often expensive for publishers to reproduce. This is also because any relevant material can, most of the time, be embedded into the text. The use of footnotes must be limited and a discussion using parentheses must rather be favored. Under no circumstances should footnotes be used to cite sources. However, if explanatory notes are absolutely paramount in the manuscript when the latter is under the review process, numbered footnotes can be displayed at the bottom of the page. However, in the published final version, all the elements comprised in footnotes must appear on the manuscript’s last page, (usually located after the references' page).

PLAGIARISM: Manuscripts received are systematically applied to an anti-plagiarism software. In this context, we invite contributors to check similarities prior to submitting their work. The authors are requested to proscribe any practice that does not comply with scientific ethics.

PROOFREADING PROCEDURE: Once the manuscript has been submitted, the Editor-in-Chief assigns it to one of the Associate Editors-in-Chief according to the topic discussed, which guides the article evaluation process through to the end, by initially endorsing several external reviewers with the evaluation and to perform an assessment in a double-blind peer reviewing requirement.
