Call for Editorial Proposals: Perspectives on Psychological Science


Perspectives on Psychological Science has historically published articles that are at least somewhat different than typical theoretical or empirical articles that most other journals publish–articles on metascientific topics, theoretical statements, opinion pieces about major issues in the field, and even occasional humorous essays and sketches.

These articles have varied widely in subject and format, but many are essentially formalized versions of consequential conversations happening in the field. APS is committed to continuing to provide a scholarly outlet for these vital conversations, ensuring that they occur in an open and transparent way accessible to scholars of all backgrounds and identities.

It is in this spirit that APS is undertaking an unconventional approach to conceptualizing the future of Perspectives: Rather than the traditional call for editor nominations, we are inviting scholars to submit their vision for a new editorial approach. This requires not only the editorial philosophy that any editor candidate might submit, but also a vision for the design of the editorial structure and peer review process by which the journal will operate.

Our hope is that this call for proposals will be received in the spirit in which it was crafted: as an invitation for psychological scientists to envision a new approach to journal operation and the opportunity to pilot this new approach at an outlet that has the potential to influence the field widely.

The deadline for proposal submissions is June 1, 2024.
