Canadian Psychology publishes generalist articles in areas of theory, research, and practice that are of interest to a broad cross-section of psychologists. Manuscripts with direct relevance to the context of Canadian psychology are also appropriate for submission. Original, empirical contributions are welcome if the research is of direct relevance to the discipline as a whole (e.g., a survey of psychologists about the future of the discipline or about their practice) or if they present the results of a systematic review (including meta-analyses) or other forms of reviews. Reviews are particularly welcome.

Canadian Psychology is published quarterly (February, May, August, November).

Instructions to Authors

All manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the Canadian Psychology manuscript submission portal.

Masked Review Policy

All submissions undergo an anonymous review. If an author does not want a masked review, this should be indicated in the cover letter along with a brief explanation. Instead of indicating authors' names and affiliations on the title page, authors should place this information in the cover letter, which is not seen by reviewers. All identifying information should be removed from the manuscript. Authors should make every effort to see that the manuscript itself contains no clues to their identities. 

Canadian Psychology considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that they have been submitted only to Canadian Psychology, that they have not been published already, and that they are not under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere.
