APA names next editor-in-chief of American Psychologist® -

American Psychological Association (APA) has named Dr. Harris Cooper as next editor-in-chief of its flagship journal American Psychologist®, effective January 1, 2021.

American Psychologist contains articles covering issues across the discipline, ranging from science and practice to psychology’s contribution to public policy.

The journal publishes articles that are timely and of interest to the broad APA membership. Articles are written in a style that is accessible to all psychologists, regardless of area of specialisation. Contributions often address national and international policy issues.

Since the journal was first published in 1946, the role of editor-in-chief had traditionally been held by the CEO of APA. Cooper’s editing experience includes a term as editor of Psychological Bulletin and as the inaugural co-editor of Archives of Scientific Psychology. He is also editor-in-chief of the ‘APA Handbook of Research Methods in Psychology’ and an editor of ‘The Handbook of Research Synthesis and Meta-Analysis.’ Cooper served as the chief editorial advisor to the APA journals program for six years and also served as the chair of the committee that developed APA’s Journal Article Reporting Standards.

To enhance manuscript submissions representing the greatest breadth of psychological research, Cooper has appointed a diverse team of associate editors representing a broad range of disciplines in psychological science.
