We are opening submissions for consideration in a special issue titled "Prejudice and Discrimination." The special issue is part of a new, innovative journal titled Translational Issues in Psychological Science, co-sponsored by APA and the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS).
"Prejudice and Discrimination" will be the fourth issue of this journal, due out in December of 2015.
For this issue the Editors will consider manuscripts across a broad area of prejudice and discrimination research concerning such topics as:
- The relation between discrimination and mental and physical health
- Cognitive, motivational, and/or developmental processes in prejudice and discrimination
- Implicit biases and discriminatory outcomes
- Prejudice reduction
- Experiencing and combatting underperformance and underrepresentation (e.g., stereotype threat, backlash, and STEM research)
- Neuropsychological approaches to understanding prejudice and discrimination
- Community contexts and interventions related to promoting equality and reducing discrimination
- Public policies related to prejudice and discrimination
- Other important and timely topics in prejudice and discrimination research
Manuscripts submitted to Translational Issues in Psychological Science should be co-authored by at least one psychologist in training (graduate student, postdoctoral fellow), should be written concisely for a broad audience, and focus on the practical implications of the research presented in the manuscript.
For more information about the journal, including detailed instructions to authors, visit the Translational Issues in Psychological Science website.
The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2014.
Please feel free to forward this correspondence to interested colleagues and the psychologists in training with whom you work.
