Help getting an article into a psychology journal?
Posted by: anonymouse1

I've written an article that I'd like to get published in a psychology journal. Anybody have any experience with that, or know a psychology professor who could talk with me for 15 minutes to get some background?

Thanks!

Perform IRB backed research and submit it blindly to a journal. Prolly still wont get published. What kind of article?

Source: My master's thesis is a psych journal article.

Here's a place to start:
[www.apa.org]

Is there a journal specialized to the topic of your paper? You could contact the editor directly to find out about submission requirements or if they know of a call for papers that might be a good fit for you. Most journals have tight requirements and are looking for submissions on very specific topics.

I also got my Master's thesis published in an academic journal; different field than psychology. My adviser saw a call for papers and thought it was a good fit. She co-authored revisions with me and submitted it to the editor with her name first (she's already published in major journals and has a PhD). This kind of bugged me at first (because all the research was mine) until I understood more about how academic publishing works. They did a peer review and then decided to publish.

Best of luck to you!
