If a manuscript is accepted for publication after rigorous peer review and editorial examination, there are three possible formats for publication. Publication fees are paid by authors or their institutions; there are two basic types of arrangement, page fees or an Open Access fee. Learn More.
Print + electronic journals: Psychological Reports, Perceptual and Motor Skills
Regular articles. Three or more printed pages.
Brief articles. This arrangement is useful if a particular finding can be reported completely in one or two Journal pages and will be immediately useful to other researchers in the field. Authors may submit supplemental material for filing with the Archive for Psychological Data.
Monograph supplements. Certain papers printing to more than 50 pages are published as monograph supplements. These are distributed to subscribers as parts of regular Journal issues and are also made available as separates.
Page charges are $35.00 per page. For all article types, there may be additional fees for non-standard elements requiring major composition, such as complex tables and figures. Published articles will appear in print and electronic journals and are available as full text to all subscribers.
Hybrid Print/Open Access fee is $2500.00 per article. No page charges apply if Open Access is chosen. Published articles will appear in print and electronic journals and area available free as full text to any internet user.
Open Access Journals: Comprehensive Psychology, Innovative Teaching
- Empirical, applied, and theoretical
- Methods and materials
- Qualitative and case studies
The Open Access fee of $900.00 applies to any type of article. Supplementary video, audio, data, graphics, or other files can be made available to readers with the article free of charge.
Preparation of Submissions
Articles should be prepared carefully, following the style and content suggested. The APA Publication Manual (American Psychological Association, 4th or 5th editions) describes an acceptable format. Proof is mailed to the author within approximately one week of acceptance of the article, and an electronic copy of the final version is sent within approximately two weeks of receipt of proof from the author.
It is the policy of this journal to file raw or supplementary data with the Archive for Psychological Data whenever possible. There is no charge for this service, which provides a permanent record of the data collected.
