Search by Field of Psychology:
The purpose of the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research is to educate, support and promote professional development, and disseminate psychological science. Through the Psi Chi Journal, members can build research skills in the process of receiving thoughtful, detailed, and rigorous feedback on their work. A supportive review process leads to publication. Publications provide recognition and evidence of scholarly productivity of authors. Published manuscripts are original and empirical, making a contribution to psychological knowledge. Psi Chi Journal authors are Psi Chi members at the undergraduate, graduate, and faculty levels. Work of undergraduate students may be less complex in design, scope, or sampling than that of graduate students or faculty authors. The peer review process takes into account developmental stage in the evaluation of each submitted manuscript. Three professionals review each submission. Each issue of the Psi Chi Journal is a compilation of scienti fically rigorous reports across the professional developmental spectrum.
Psi Chi encourages students to review and incorporate "Twelve Tips for Authors" from the APS Observer before submitting manuscripts to the Psi Chi Journal. All manuscripts must be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th or 6th ed.); if you are using the first printing of the 6th edition please check the APA Web site for Reprint Corrections. Before submitting, refer to the “Checklist for Manuscript Submission” found on APA’s Web site to check the accuracy of your paper for APA style.
