About the Journal

PSYCHOLOGY: the journal of the Hellenic Psychological Society


PSYCHOLOGY is an open-access, peer-reviewed scientific publication of the Hellenic Psychological Society (HPS). It is published biannually and publishes original papers from all fields of psychology in Greek and in English language.

PSYCHOLOGY aims at the dissemination of psychological research produced both in Greece and internationally. It also aims at fostering scientific and interdisciplinary dialogue, as well as disseminating scientific knowledge of general interest in the field of Psychology. The Editorial Committee of the journal represents and encourages contributions from all fields of psychology, especially those that address new developments and pursue innovative approaches.

PSYCHOLOGY publishes original empirical papers, brief empirical reports, theoretical reviews, book reviews, as well as, on special occasions, translations of foreign-language works of great impact (see, Submission guidelines). 
The selection of the submitted papers for publication is done solely on the basis of their scientific quality and integrity. The journal PSYCHOLOGY has adopted a "double-blind” peer-review model, protecting thus the identity of both the authors of each paper and its reviewers. 

The journal PSYCHOLOGY has also adopted a Diamond / Platinum Open-Access policy. The authors are not charged with any submission, processing, production or publication costs. Their work can be openly accessed and shared immediately after publication. All papers published in PSYCHOLOGY are licenced under 'Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International'.
