Undergraduate Research Journals for Psychology
Journal of European Psychology Students
"The Journal of European Psychology Students (JEPS) is an open-access, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal for psychology students worldwide. JEPS is run by highly motivated European psychology students and has been publishing since 2009. By ensuring that authors are always provided with extensive feedback, JEPS gives psychology students the chance to gain experience in publishing and to improve their scientific skills. Furthermore, JEPS provides students with the opportunity to share their research and to take a first step toward a scientific career." JEPS publishes articles that contribute both theoretically and empirically to an understanding of psychology. Submitted manuscripts must pertain to a psychological field (e.g., social psychology, clinical psychology, health psychology, etc.) or a field related to psychology (e.g., neuroscience, behavioural economics, animal behaviour, etc.). Submissions are accepted year round.
Journal of Interpersonal Relations, Intergroup Relations and Identity
The Journal of Interpersonal Relations, Intergroup Relations and Identity (JIRIRI) is a scientific journal distributed internationally in the field of identity, interpersonal and intergroup relations. "This project is a student initiative that offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to fully experience the scientific method, from the development of original ideas to their diffusion, through the peer review process." Accepts submissions in English and French.
Journal of Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences
"The Journal of Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences (JPBS) offers undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty, an opportunity to publish in a recognized academic journal.
