The OPA Communication & Technology Committee and Editorial Board is calling for manuscripts to review for the 2020 Ohio Psychologist, a peer-reviewed journal which is published once a year by the Ohio Psychological Association.

These articles can be:

  • Scientifically research-based
  • Advocacy related to the profession
  • Practice related
  • Current use of technology practices in therapy

Instructions for authors:

  1. Articles are to be no longer than 1,600 words (not including APA abstract, references or biography). Articles should relate to the 2020 OPA theme, “Today’s Psychology: Practice, Research and Emerging Trends” and follow the guidelines set within the APA’s “Publication Manual.”

  2. Articles may be based upon clinical or practical experience, and do not need to be research or academic based.

  3. Each article must contain a 100-150 APA Abstract.

  4. References must be in APA format.

  5. Please notify the managing editor, Karen Hardin (khardin@ohpsych.org), if you are planning to submit an article.

  6. Authors will email articles for review to Karen Hardin, in electronic format no later than May 15, 2020. Artwork, tables, charts or photos are desirable, but must be submitted in a separate high-resolution pdf or jpeg format, not embedded within the paper. The use of images is at the discretion of the managing editor on the basis of space and article significance.

  7. Authors will provide a brief biography of themselves, along with a high-resolution photograph.

  8. Articles considered for publication will be independently reviewed by at least two different anonymous reviewers. Written comments and recommendations from reviewers will be shared with authors.

  9. Each leading author will be contacted as to the status of the article after the review is complete.

  10.  Authors will receive three copies of the magazine, and more can be supplied upon request.

  11.  Any questions regarding this process  should be directed to Karen Hardin, OPA Director of Education and Communication at 614.224.0034 or khardin@ohpsych.org.
