Focus and Scope
Psychologica Belgica is the official journal of the Belgian Association for Psychological Sciences (BAPS) founded in 1954. BAPS promotes the development of both fundamental and applied psychological sciences.
Psychologica Belgica publishes peer-reviewed, fully open access, scientific contributions to all domains of psychology. The Editorial Board members come from a wide range of psychology domains, working in Belgium and in other countries. Publications are made available online as soon as they are available, with print issues appearing quarterly.
We invite empirical notes and regular empirical articles that address psychology from a variety of approaches and methods, both quantitative and qualitative. We also welcome integrative reviews of a particular domain within psychology, and contributions that incorporate a range of perspectives from areas within psychology or other related disciplines.
Most articles are unsolicited submissions, however special collections and issues on specific, timely topics, are also encouraged, which are typically edited by a Guest Editor.
The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready.
Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.
