Author Guidelines

All manuscripts should be submitted via email to in accordance with manuscript submission guidelines, as follows: The co-editors invite manuscripts in assessment psychology, including, but not limited to, Educational assessment, Forensic assessment, Geriatric assessment, Neuropsychological assessment, Pediatric assessment and Personality assessment. Assessment psychology manuscripts will be considered for their importance to the field, suitability to the journal, writing ability and objective scientific rigor. Authors submitting electronic assessment manuscripts to this journal should not submit them elsewhere until a final decision is made with regards to the acceptance of the manuscript. The journal, Archives of Assessment Psychology, accepts theoretical, applied, review, and commentary articles relevant to the field of assessment psychology. The most critical consideration is whether the article adds to the current knowledge base in assessment psychology. Authors are required to use the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition, 2009) as their guide for preparation of their new or revised manuscript. It is suggested that authors take responsibility to insure that their identities are excluded for masked or blind review. Authors have the option to suggest specific reviewers for their manuscripts but no one in a direct working relationship with the author or at the same institution should be suggested. If suggestions are made, the author must include the individual’s full mailing, phone, and e-mail information. The ultimate decision to assign editorial reviewers rests with the co-editors. All manuscripts must be submitted as a Microsoft word 97 file (which uses the .doc format). Tables and graphs should not be included in the manuscript but their general location should be indicated. A separate file should be submitted for graphic and other figures and an additional file for tables. These may be Microsoft word (.doc) or excel (.xls) files. The main file should be named using a short version of the title (e.g., Correlates of attentional disorders). A graphics file should use the same name followed by the word graph (e.g., Correlates of attentional disorders graphs). Table files should be named using the abbreviated title followed by the word tables. All pages must be typed double-spaced. Authors are required to provide all necessary permissions to the editors to reproduce in electronic form any and all copyrighted material. The cover letter provided with the manuscript should include all authors’ identification to avoid conflict of interest and a statement of compliance with APA ethical standards. Authors are encouraged not to use lengthy quotations or other material which might be considered copyright violations. Manuscripts should be written for a professional audience. Manuscripts that do not conform to the submission guidelines may be returned with out being reviewed or commented upon. Instructions and guidelines that are standard in other assessment psychology journals are applicable here as well. Thank you.
