International Journal of Psychology is the official journal of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS), which works to promote ""the development, representation and advancement of psychology as a basic and applied science nationally, regionally, and internationally"" (Article 5, IUPsyS Statutes). IUPsyS represents psychology in its full breadth as a science and as a profession.
The International Journal of Psychology (IJP) advances psychological research of interest and relevance for the human condition around the world, and serves as the outlet for internationally relevant basic and applied research in scientific psychology.
Contributions are encouraged from all fields of psychology, especially those that address new developments and pursue innovative approaches. Particularly welcome are articles that either (a) incorporate perspectives from different areas within psychology or from disciplines of relevance for psychology, (b) study the role of physical, social and cultural contexts in psychological processes and outcomes, or (c) integrate psychological thinking from different regions in the world.
IJP publishes Brief Research Reports, Regular Empirical Articles, Reviews, and Special Sections with a particular thematic focus. Relevance for an international readership is our prominent goal. IJP does not publish technical articles, or clinical case studies.
