About the Journal

Focus and Scope

PSICOLOGICA was born in 1980 as an instrument for publication of articles in Methodology and Experimental Psychology. At present, we accept for review manuscript describing research of the highest quality in any field of experimental Psychology. Our language of publication is preferentially English, although we also publish in Spanish. We routinely send manuscript for review to the major experts in the field.

Peer Review Process

PSICOLOGICA has the following standard review process: 1.-The Editor or associate editor receives the manuscript and takes the first decision on its appropriateness for the journal. 2.-If appropriate, an action editor and two reviewers are assigned to the manuscript according to the following cases: 2.1-Papers written in Spanish are obviously sent to people who are able to read Spanish (not necessarily of Spanish nationality). 2.2.-Papers written in English may be sent to any member of the editorial board of Spanish or nonSpanish nationality, or any special outside reviewer. As we try to increase the quality and the level of our publication we look for major researchers in their field for the review of manuscripts written in English. 3.-The action editor takes a decision taken into account his or her view of the manuscript and all the opinions of the reviewers and third persons involved in the process. This decision is sent to everybody involved in the process. 4.-If the manuscript is finally accepted (at this point is included in the IN PRINT section of the web: http://www.uv.es/psicologica), the author receives the proofs that must be sent back in seven days.
