The official peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the American Psychological Association, American Psychologist publishes current and timely high-impact papers of broad interest, including empirical reports, meta-analyses, and scholarly reviews covering science, practice, education, and policy. Contributions often address national and international policy issues.
Earlier this year, APA published a special issue of American Psychologist: “Undergraduate Education in Psychology: Current Status and Future Directions.” The issue, edited by guest editors John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP, and Robin Hailstorks, PhD, takes an in-depth look at emergent trends in psychology undergraduate education and offers new guidelines for educators and students. The articles featured in this special issue are:
- Undergraduate Study in Psychology: Curriculum and Assessment
- Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major: Version 2.0
- Strengthening Introductory Psychology: A New Model for Teaching the Introductory Course
- The New Medical College Admission Test: Implications for Teaching Psychology
- Internationalizing Undergraduate Psychology Education: Trends, Techniques, and Technologies
Special issues of American Psychologist and those of other APA journals are included with print and electronic subscriptions. Journal special issues can also be purchased separately on the APA website. PsycARTICLES® users on APA PsycNET® (including individual subscribers to the APA PsycNET Gold, Gold Plus, and Platinum access packages), EBSCOhost, Ovid and ProQuest can review special issues by browsing PsycARTICLES or by performing a title search for the journal.
