Association for Psychological Science, SAGE Launch Clinical Psychological Science Association for Psychological Science's new journal opens new field of science

Los Angeles, CA (April 23, 2012) The Association for Psychological Science and SAGE announce the launch of Clinical Psychological Science, a new peer-reviewed journal focused on publishing advances in clinical science and providing a venue for cutting-edge research across a wide range of conceptual views, approaches, and topics. This is the APS's fifth scholarly journal, joining Psychological Science, Current Directions in Psychological Science, Psychological Science in the Public Interest, and Perspectives on Psychological Science.

"As Editor it is a privilege to join a family of journals with standards for rigor and relevance that are widely appreciated and recognized," said Alan E. Kazdin, Clinical Psychological Science Editor. "In keeping with the standards set by our sibling journals, we are eager to represent, illustrate, and reflect Clinical Psychological Science at its finest. I look forward to a diverse set of articles, contributors, and disciplines that will help understand and ameliorate clinical disorders and sources of impairment."

Clinical Psychological Science is an outlet for a modern look at Clinical Psychological Science in the context of supporting global health--specifically global mental health. The first journal to take such a look at the field, Clinical Psychological Science provides readers with the best, most innovative research in Clinical Psychological Science, giving researchers of all stripes a home for their work and a place in which to communicate with a broad audience of both clinical and other scientists. Associate editors on the journal include Tyrone D. Cannon of University of California, Los Angeles; Emily A. Holmes of University of Oxford, UK; Jill M. Hooley of Harvard University; and Kenneth J. Sher of University of Missouri.

The journal welcomes a range of topics broader than most journals can consider. For example, Clinical Psychological Science welcomes:

  • Translational articles that help move from basic research to application or point the concrete paths through which that could be accomplished;
  • Research using animal models that has clear and direct implications for understanding mechanisms underlying development of clinical dysfunction and its prevention or amelioration;
  • Research on novel preventive and treatment interventions and models of delivering them to the large swaths of individuals in need of services;
  • Investigations using diverse methodologies (e.g., novel statistical models, qualitative studies, single-case designs) that reveal or elaborate phenomena in new ways;
  • Mathematical, computer, and computational models that can place clinical psychological phenomena in a new light and that enhance empirical research; and
  • Theory-driven research that recasts important phenomena in novel ways and that tests predictions to show what we have gained from the theory.

Clinical Psychological Science is now accepting manuscript submissions and plans to publish papers online quickly after acceptance. Those interested in submitting to the journal or learning more can visit the Clinical Psychological Science website at: http://cpsjournal.wordpress.com/.

"Clinical Psychological Science nicely complements the other APS journals," said Bob Howard, SAGE's Executive Director, U.S. Journals. "By offering this new outlet for cutting-edge clinical science, APS continues to be a leading presence in psychology and an innovative force for psychological science. We are proud to be the Association's publisher and to help launch this journal."
