Submission Deadline: March 1, 2014
Editor: Martin Drapeau, McGill UniversityGuest Editor: John Hunsley, University of Ottawa
Canadian Psychology, a Canadian Psychological Association journal, invites the submission of manuscripts for a special issue on science in applied and professional psychology.
Preference will be given to submissions that address one or more of the following themes:
The identity of psychologists as scientist-practitioners, practitioner-scholars, and/or clinical scientists
The use of science in applied and professional psychology (e.g., using research to inform personnel-related decisions, use of evidence-based interventions)
The scientific training of students in applied and professional psychology
Innovative and/or promising ways of better integrating research and practice
Ways of assessing research or products based on research (e.g., methods to assess the robustness of research findings and evidence, methods to assess the quality of a study or to assess the quality of a practice guideline)
Innovative ways of improving the research skills of applied and professional psychologists and psychology trainees
Strategies for synthesizing and disseminating research findings
Canadian Psychology has a mandate to present generalist articles in areas of theory, research, and practice that are of interest to a broad cross-section of psychologists. Therefore, papers for the special issue should present issues and/or methods having wide applicability. Critical literature reviews and summaries of the scientific literature, knowledge syntheses, meta-analyses/meta-syntheses, and guidelines are also welcome. Narrative reviews, letters to the Editor and commentaries will also be accepted.
We will accept regular articles, which should be approximately 20–35 pages, including references, and brief reports which should normally be no more than 14 pages in length, including references and tables. Briefer papers of less than 14 pages will exceptionally be considered for this special issue.
Manuscripts can be submitted in French or English. All submissions will undergo peer-review.
Submit manuscripts via the Manuscript Submission Portal.
Authors must indicate clearly in their cover letter that their submission should be considered for this special issue.
