Call for Policy Briefs: International Perspectives in Psychology: Research, Practice, Consultation®
International Perspectives in Psychology: Research, Practice, Consultation ® (IPP) is the official journal of Division 52 (International Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. IPP publishes peer-reviewed articles on research that examines human behavior and experiences around the globe from a psychological perspective. It publishes intervention strategies that use psychological science to improve the lives of people around the world.
The journal promotes the use of psychological science that is contextually informed, culturally inclusive, and dedicated to serving the public interest. IPP incorporates empirical findings from education, medicine, political science, public health, psychology, sociology, gender and ethnic studies, and related disciplines.
We are excited to announce the journal now seeks submissions of Policy Briefs. Designed to enable outreach and impact, policy briefs are a vehicle for cogent evidence-based advice on a policy issue. They are typically derived from a research project and written to include a non-specialized audience (for details, https://www.idrc.ca/sites/default/files/idrcpolicybrieftoolkit.pdf).
Policy briefs will be peer reviewed, and should include:
- No more than 1,500 words (including any table and/or figure)
- Executive Summary (Abstract)
- Introduction (without heading, as in APA format)
- Approach (Method)
- Conclusion (Implications, Recommendations)
- No more than four References
- Footnotes highlighting key points are permitted but not required
IPP authors benefit from exceptional support, knowledge, and resources; and enjoy a worldwide exposure: as a publication of the American Psychological Association, all the journal’s articles are included in PsycINFO® PsycARTICLES® and SCOPUS.
