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, large-scale studies adopting new and innovative methodological approaches, and registered reports of original research, among others. The latter section will also be the new home for APS Registered Replication Reports (published through 2017 in Perspectives on Psychological Science).

The first issue will publish in early 2018. Articles will be published in OnlineFirst before they are assigned to an issue. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
