APS announces inaugural issue of new journal, Clinical Psychological Science

December 27, 2012

Los Angeles, California (December 27, 2012) The Association for Psychological Science and SAGE are pleased to announce the inaugural issue of Clinical Psychological Science (CPS), a unique new journal that highlights cutting-edge research in the field of clinical psychological science.

Headed by Founding Editor Alan E. Kazdin, John M. Musser Professor of Psychology and Child Psychiatry at Yale University and Director of the Yale Parenting Center, and a distinguished team of associate editors -- Tyrone D. Cannon of Yale University; Emily A. Holmes of MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge; Jill M. Hooley of Harvard University; and Kenneth J. Sher of University of Missouri -- this journal aims to bring together the best, most innovative research in both core and novel domains to define a new way of studying clinical phenomena.

"CPS publishes work from all the specialty areas of clinical psychological science, but like few other journals, it is keenly interested in understanding phenomena from diverse perspectives that usually could not be accommodated in a single outlet," Kazdin said in an interview.

In his opening editorial, Kazdin describes four characteristics that set this journal apart: The research published in the inaugural issue of Clinical Psychological Science reflects diverse and boundary-crossing perspectives. The articles investigate, for example, the link between targeted rejection and immune response in adolescents, the key characteristics of major depressive disorder, the long-term effects of youth mentoring on arrest records, and the relationship between mind wandering and cell aging.

All of the articles published in Clinical Psychological Science will be available to the public for free through January 2013.

The Association for Psychological Science is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of scientific psychology and its representation in the U.S. and internationally. It was founded in 1988 by a group of scientifically-oriented psychologists interested in advancing scientific psychology and its representation as a science. The Association's mission is to promote, protect, and advance the interests of scientifically-oriented psychology in research, application, teaching, and the improvement of human welfare. APS has more than 23,000 members and includes leading psychological scientists and academics, clinicians, researchers, teachers, and administrators. http://www.psychologicalscience.org/

SAGE is a leading international publisher of journals, books, and electronic media for academic, educational, and professional markets. Since 1965, SAGE has helped inform and educate a global community of scholars, practitioners, researchers, and students spanning a wide range of subject areas including business, humanities, social sciences, and science, technology, and medicine.
