Psicothema was founded in Asturias (northern Spain) in 1989, and is published jointly by the Psychology Faculty of the University of Oviedo and the Psychological Association of the Principality of Asturias (Colegio Oficial de Psicólogos del Principado de Asturias).
We currently publish four issues per year, which accounts for some 100 articles annually. We admit work from both the basic and applied research fields, and from all areas of Psychology, all manuscripts being anonymously reviewed prior to publication. The majority of the articles are published in Spanish, though they may appear in English at the author’s request. An international scope has always been one of our paramount concerns, reflecting our conviction that the Psychology currently being produced in the Spanish language is competitive at a worldwide level, and that it should be read in our own language.
Psicothema is included in the most relevant national and international databases, notably Psychological Abstracts, Current Contents and MEDLINE/Index Medicus. Looking to the future, Psicothema will continue to be open to any psychological approach or perspective backed up by the strength of its data and arguments, and to welcome any author capable of convincing our reviewers that their manuscript meets the standards of quality we demand.
