Tri Dayakisni, M.Si., as the dean, both of whom are lecturers from the Faculty of Psychology, University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM). Initially, the idea to accommodate scientific research articles in JIPT was initiated by the discovery of a large amount of unpublished scientific articles by lecturers and students from the faculty of psychology UMM.
