Publication Guidelines 

Europe’s Journal of Psychology is published four times a year (February, May, August and November). Articles can be submitted at any time and the review process (double-blind peer review) lasts on average 3 months.

Publication lag: Please note that while we do our best to publish papers in a timely manner, we are working through a backlog of papers and the time between acceptance and publication in an issue might be 9 to 12 months. However, we are currently implementing an ‘early view’ option for accepted papers so we are committed to making accepted papers available earlier than the issue they are assigned to.

Papers will be evaluated by the Editorial Board in terms of scientific merit, readability, and interest to a general readership.

Articles should be written in proficient English (UK or US spelling) and they are expected to be logical, well-organized, and concise. If English is not your native language, please consider using the services of an editor.

Please note that there is no author fee for papers published in Europe’s Journal of Psychology.

As an open access journal free of charge for authors and readers EJOP doesn’t have funds for extensive copy editing. All submitted materials have to comply with the PsychOpen Author Guidelines. It is important that authors follow these guidelines closely (please download our detailed PsychOpen Style Guide here: Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines may be returned to authors. Publication of manuscripts is contingent on thorough proofreading and adherence to the stylistic guidelines by the author(s).

Note that submissions are subject to plagiarism screening. Please also see PsychOpen's Guidelines on Publication Ethics.
