Perspectives on Psychological Science

The Association for Psychological Science (APS) has established an Interim Editorial Panel that is charged with processing manuscripts that were undergoing peer review at Perspectives on Psychological Science at the time of the previous Editor-in-Chief’s resignation. This panel is helping to bring these manuscripts to their final decision, but they are not reviewing any new submissions to the journal at this time, and they will not be reviewing any appeals of decisions made by the previous editorial team. Perspectives will not be accepting new submissions until the next Editor-in-Chief has been appointed. The search for the next Editor-in-Chief has begun, with a goal of reopening the journal to new submissions in late 2024.

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).
