Aims and scope
Journal of Psychological Methods and Statistics is an international refereed journal published quarterly online open access by KMF that considers articles on new, updated, adapted or innovative research methodologies and methods, analytical methods, and research practices across the breadth of psychological research. The journal aims to be the leading forum for psychology researchers from all areas of psychology, and seeks to offer original and ground-breaking articles on research methods that advance the field. The intended audience for journal content is academics, researchers, students and practitioners across diverse fields of psychology who seek relevant and informative content on the latest in research methods and research practices. We encourage the integration and adaption of methods, methodologies and analytic approaches from one area of psychology or field of research to another, and the adaptation of methods from other disciplines which have relevance for psychological research practice. The journal considers research methods across the whole spectrum, and welcomes articles which take a quantitative, qualitative or mixed-methods approach to research. The journal solicits original theoretical, empirical, and methodological articles that have psychological relevance discussing new innovative applications or adaptations of methodologies and methods, or articles offering reviews of important methodological issues and innovations.
