Perspectives on Psychological Science

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. The latest 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 microagressions.

Perspectives has introduced a new feature, special collections of independently submitted articles that share a common theme and are accompanied by an invited preface by an outstanding early-career scholar. Find out more about the inaugural edition of New Perspectives on Psychological Science.

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