Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science

Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science is the home for innovative developments in research methods, practices, and conduct across the full range of areas and topics within psychological science. AMPPS publishes new types of empirical work and articles and tutorials that reflect the various approaches to research across the field. The journal’s editorial scope encompasses the breadth of psychological science, with editors, reviewers, and articles representing a balance among diverse disciplinary perspectives and methodological approaches. AMPPS encourages integration of methodological and analytical questions across multiple branches of psychological science and brings the latest methodological advances to non-methodology experts across all areas of the field.

AMPPS’s Research Practices section will include best practices articles, statistics tutorials, articles on new research tools, commentaries, simulation studies for new techniques, and debates about best practices, among others. The journal’s Empirical section will include methodological articles, policy-oriented empirical studies, and large-scale studies adopting new and innovative methodological approaches, among others. The latter section will also be the new home for APS Registered Replication Reports (published through 2017 in Perspectives on Psychological Science).

APS will launch the journal’s submission site in late May 2017 and will publish the first issue in early 2018. Submission guidelines will be available later this spring.
