This manual aims to provide a guide to a newly developed Perceptual Visual-Motor and Personality Screening Index: Oshodi Visual-Motor Optimal Test (OVMOT). The OVMOT, unlike the Bender Gestalt test (a visual-motor perceptual measure with mostly line, linear, or angulated drawings, which is rooted in Eurocentric perceptual culture and history), the OVMOT is poly-cultural in nature. It is mixed with circular, curvilinear, and linear or angulated drawings which allow it to serve as a parallel measure to the Bender test and other existing Euro-American-based visual-motor perceptual measures. The Oshodi Visual Motor Optimal Test consists of 11 figures, each on its own 3" x 5" card. Its categories reflect a variety of bio-psycho-culturally related orientations which were drawn out to form four categories, namely: Perceptual orientation to Angulation; Perceptual orientation to Curvilinearity; Perceptual orientation to Circularity; Perceptual orientation to Linearity. The Visual Motor or perceptual aspects of the OVMOT is scored using the Oshodi Quick Qualitative Score System (OQQSS). The OVMOT also serves as a projective test for the evaluation of emotional and personality characteristics. The manual provides help in understanding how to interpret images and contents of these designs as they relate respective symbolic, emotional, dynamic, conscious, or unconscious meanings.

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.
The editor has the following responsibilities:
1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
6.The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
8.The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
