Psicothema was founded in Asturias (northern Spain) in 1989, and is published jointly by the Psychology Faculty of the University of Oviedo and the Psychological Association of the Principality of Asturias (Colegio Oficial de Psicólogos del Principado de Asturias).
We currently publish four issues per year, which accounts for some 100 articles annually. We admit work from both the basic and applied research fields, and from all areas of Psychology, all manuscripts being anonymously reviewed prior to publication.
Psicothema is included in the most relevant national and international databases, notably Psychological Abstracts, Current Contents and MEDLINE/Index Medicus; it is also on the Impact Factor lists drawn up by the prestigious Institute for Scientific Information. Looking to the future, Psicothema will continue to be open to any psychological approach or perspective backed up by the strength of its data and arguments, and to welcome any author capable of convincing our reviewers that their manuscript meets the standards of quality we demand.
Psicothema is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to any user or institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author, as long as reference to the original source is made. For content coverage out of our web, links to Psicothema website are preferred.
We believe that a decisive commitment to quality is the best guarantee for our readers, whose suggestions will always be welcome.
