Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- Submit MAIN DOCUMENT with NO AUTHORS' NAMES file in WORD (*.doc or *.docx) format
- Submit a separate file including: full title, a complete list of Authors and their affiliations, corresponding author
- Submit images and tables as separate files
- The Submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in the Letter to Editor)
- The submission file is formatted according to APA style 7th ed.
- All Authors have read, agreed and accepted every part of the submission
- Data file as well as syntax script and all materials useful for reproducing results or the experimental procedure followed to obtain data and reported in the submission will be made (or are) available upon request for checking or for reproducing results
- Authors have double checked all references
Original articles are original and scientifically sound experiments providing new empirical evidence. Authors are expected to accurately and consistently motivate their research hypotheses by considering up-to-date empirical evidence present in the literature or considering the relevant theories. The Materials and Methods sections should ensure the reproducibility of the presented work. The analysis strategy should allow the reader to clearly understand which and how each result support or not the advanced hypotheses.
All original articles should include an Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusions (optional) sections and must not generally exceed 30,000 keystrokes, spaces included.
Please refer to the Authors' guide for specific instructions and templates.
Research Notes are brief reports of short, observational studies that report preliminary results or a short complete study or research that extends previously published research or preliminary results of a new experimental paradigm. Brief reports usually contain two figures and/or a table; however, the Materials and Methods sections should be detailed to ensure the reproducibility of the presented work.
The structure is similar to that of an article, and the limit for research notes is 15,000 keystrokes, including spaces.
The journals is interested in publishing annotated bibliography, systematic review, and systematic quantitative meta-analysis focusing on main topics in psychology.
Annotated bibliographies are a comprehensive analysis of the existing literature within a field of study, identifying conflicting results, understudied topics, or problems. We expect Annotated bibliographies to be critical and constructive and provide recommendations for future research. No new, unpublished data should be presented. The structure can include an Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Relevant Sections, Discussion, Conclusions, and Future Directions, with a suggested 25,000 keystrokes, including spaces.
Systematic qualitative review articles present a detailed investigation of previous research on a given topic that uses clearly defined search parameters and methods to identify, categorize, analyze, and report aggregated evidence on a specific topic. The structure of systematic reviews should include a Methods section. Preferably Systematic reviews should follow the PRISMA checklist and include a completed PRISMA flow diagram as part of the main text or Supplementary Materials. Authors are encouraged to register their review protocols before data extraction in public registries like PROSPERO. The suggested length of the manuscript is 25,000 keystrokes, including spaces.
Systematic quantitative meta-analysis articles, like systematic reviews, combine pertinent study data from several independent and systematically selected studies to develop a single conclusion to reach greater statistical power. The structure of systematic quantitative meta-analysis includes Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusions. Systematic quantitative meta-analysis adheres to the PRISMA checklist, and preferably, Authors are invited to register their review protocols before data extraction in public registries like PROSPERO. The suggested length of the manuscript is 25,000 keystrokes, including spaces.
