Focus and Scope
The E-Journal of Applied Psychology (E-JAP) is a web-based international outlet for original research articles which apply psychological theories to clinical and social issues.
E-JAP has two sections. Papers published in the Clinical Section of E-JAP will generally focus on the prevention of psychological disorders, the promotion of psychological health, effective adaptation of adults and children to life problems, and the evaluation of therapeutic interventions in the areas of counselling, clinical, developmental and health psychology.
Papers published in the Social Section of E-JAP will generally focus on individuals and groups in social contexts such as family, work, or community settings. Articles may address aspects of interpersonal relationships, group dynamics, organisational health, and political or cultural issues from the perspectives of community, organisational and social psychology.
E-JAP will publish original quantitative and qualitative research, case studies and review papers. Contributions may include experimental and survey research, theoretical and methodological reviews, individual case studies, and descriptions of new clinical treatment methods. The journal will also publish short reports, commentaries and letters to the editor. If you would like to submit an article for publication in this journal, please send it as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Peer Review Process
Clinical and Social Issues
Manuscripts adhering to the aims, scope and formatting guidelines of E-JAP will be sent to two qualified referees for review. The editor's decision to accept or reject a paper, based on referees' comments is final.
Two editions of E-JAP are published per year.
