The NYS Psychologist is the official Journal of the New York State Psychological Association and, as such, contains archival documents. It also publishes articles on current issues in psychology as well as empirical, theoretical, and practice articles based on broad aspects of psychology. Statements contained in the NYS Psychologist are the personal view of the authors and do not constitute NYSPA policy unless so indicated. 

NYS Psychologist Publication Guidelines

Theme: Resilience in Aging

Deadline: The deadline for submissions of proposals is March 15, 2018. Proposals can be submitted via Survey Monkey at the following. 


After all proposals are reviewed, the editorial board will notify invitees to submit completed manuscripts. Individuals with accepted proposals will be notified by April 15, 2018. Final accepted manuscripts are due by June 30, 2018.

If your proposal is accepted, you will be given a link to submit your manuscript. 

Manuscript Preparation: Authors should prepare manuscripts according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). Manuscripts should be no more than 12 double-spaced pages including references, 250 words on a page, with at least a one-inch margin on all sides of the paper, and with typeface no smaller than 12 points.

Abstract and KeywordsAll manuscripts must include an abstract containing a maximum of 250 words. After the abstract, please supply up to five or six key words. 

Editorial Policy: All manuscripts are first reviewed by the editor(s) of the issue to determine if they are appropriate for this journal. We do not accept opinion pieces. In certain cases, manuscripts may be invited; such an invitation does not constitute automatic acceptance. All manuscripts are peer reviewed by at least two reviewers. Authors are required to obtain and provide to NYSPA all necessary permissions to reproduce any copyrighted work. The co-editors of the NYS Psychologist reserves the right to edit all copy. The final acceptance decision rests with the issue editor, although the NYSPA Publications/Editorial Committee retains oversight functions. The issue editor, therefore, should (a) feel free to seek consultation from the Publications/Editorial Committee throughout the process of putting the issue together and (b) build in sufficient time before publication for the Publications/Editorial Committee to review the completed issue.

The NYS Psychologist is indexed in APA’s PsycInfo. Copyright and permissions. Those who wish to reuse NYSPA-copyrighted material must secure from NYSPA and the author written permission to reproduce a journal article in full or journal text of more than 500 words.
