Professional Psychology: Research and Practice ® publishes articles on the application of psychology, including the scientific underpinnings of the profession of psychology.

Articles that present assessment, treatment, and practice implications are encouraged. Both data-based and theoretical articles on techniques and practices used in the application of psychology are acceptable.

  • research and theory on public policy as it affects the practice of psychology
  • current advances in applications from such fields as health psychology, community psychology, psychology of women, clinical neuropsychology, family psychology, psychology of ethnicity and culture, forensic psychology, and other areas
  • standards of professional practice and delivery of services in a variety of contexts—industries, institutions, and other organizations
