Scandinavian Journal of Psychology
The Scandinavian Journal of Psychology (SJoP) is published in association with the Nordic Psychological Associations and is an international journal, available globally and welcoming submissions from around the world. SJoP publishes high quality empirical reports as well as theoretical and methodological papers. We encourage submissions of meta-analyses, systematic reviews as well as major theoretical contributions. We also welcome special issue proposals. Papers on tests or questionnaires should primarily concern development and data of new tests or new questionnaires. Data on already established tests (e.g., adaptation into a specific language) will only be considered if representing major theoretical or methodological advancements. A high rejection rate and blind peer review process ensure that the journal's contents are of consistently high quality and SJoP’s highly efficient, professional Editorial Office provides a fast turnaround for authors submitting to the journal. Interdisciplinary in nature, SJoP is widely read by professional psychologists, academics and students worldwide.
The Scandinavian Journal of Psychology is organised into four sections:
- Cognition and Neurosciences
Papers in this section are concerned with any area within cognitive and clinical neuroscience. The section welcomes papers on a wide range of topics, from basic cognition to clinical neuropsychology.
- Development and Aging
This section deals with all aspects of psychological development, normal or abnormal. Papers published in this section address any part of the life span from infancy to old age. Of interest are empirical and theoretical contributions and clinical reviews on the roles of biological, social and cultural factors in development.
- Personality and Social Psychology
This section publishes original papers in all areas of personality and social psychology. Topics include personality processes and individual differences, social cognition and attitudes, social interaction and group processes.
- Health and Disability
Papers in this section reflect research in the psychology of health and disability. A wide range of topics is welcome, focusing on psychological factors in the causes, development and consequences of health, disease and disability.
