Perspectives on Psychological Science

Perspectives on Psychological Science has temporarily suspended the consideration of new manuscript submissions as of December 9, 2022. The Editor-in-Chief position is currently vacant, and APS is working to appoint an Interim Editor to lead the journal until the next Editor-in-Chief has been selected. During this time, some journal activities may continue on previously submitted manuscripts; however no editorial decisions will be rendered until an Interim Editor has been appointed.

Thank you for your patience as APS determines the best path forward for the journal.

Launched by the Association for Psychological Science in 2006, Perspectives on Psychological Science is a bimonthly journal publishing an eclectic mix of provocative reports and articles, including broad integrative reviews, overviews of research programs, meta-analyses, theoretical statements, and articles on topics such as the philosophy of science, opinion pieces about major issues in the field, autobiographical reflections of senior members of the field, and even occasional humorous essays and sketches. Perspectives contains both invited and submitted articles.

Past special sections of Perspectives have investigated correlative analyses commonly used in neuroimaging studies, featured prominent researchers writing about what they consider to be “The Next Big Questions in Psychology,” and examined the causes of and solutions to the lack of replication in psychological science. A recent issue of Perspectives is dedicated to the singular topic of microaggressions: statements, policies, and environmental cues that carry racial and prejudicial overtones. Read more about this special issue on microaggressions.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
