Committed to Editorial Excellence in Scholarly Publishing
The American Psychological Association’s (APA’s) prestigious scholarly journals are among the most widely circulated, most frequently cited, and most often used publications in the behavioral and social sciences. They are indispensable for researchers, practitioners, librarians, professors, and students.
The journals program of the APA is designed to exclusively support the science and practice of psychology and the behavioral sciences. When you subscribe to an APA journal, you can be sure that you will always receive the highest quality of psychological and behavioral sciences research. Your library can benefit by adding these important journals, including the flagship journal of the APA, American Psychologist®.

All APA journals meet the rigorous requirements of the APA. Before an article is published in an APA journal, it is vetted for quality through meticulous peer review. In nearly every case, that means that articles are reviewed before publication by professionals who are well qualified to comment on their value for fellow practitioners and researchers. Among the questions that editors of APA journals ask about every article are the following:
- Is the information sound?
- Does it reflect the latest thinking in the field?
- Is the research design appropriate and unimpeachable?
- Does the article make a significant contribution?
The APA journals program continues to grow, reflecting the prestige, quality, and value of the journals that it publishes, as well as its commitment to supporting and disseminating important, innovative research as broadly as possible.
The American Psychological Association, in Washington, DC, is the largest scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States. The APA’s membership includes nearly 115,700 researchers, educators, clinicians, consultants, and students. Through its divisions in 54 subfields of psychology and affiliations with 60 state, territorial, and Canadian provincial associations, the APA works to advance the creation, communication, and application of psychological knowledge to benefit psychology and improve people’s lives.
