APA: Best Practices in Journal Publishing

UPDATED: It was brought to my attention that the Handbook on Placement was similarly unsung and behind a subscription-only firewall.  I’ve added that to the Publications page of the Status of Women site (linked to below).

I’ve posted this on the offsite webpage of the Committee on the Status of Women:

The May 2012 issue of the APA Proceedings ( Vol. 85, No. 5) includes a statement on Best Practices for Journals on pp. 59-63, which we excerpt here [full text linked there] for those who cannot access the Publications available on the Members Only site of APAonline.

This was drafted by many members including those on the Committee on the Status and Future of the Profession, and journal editors such as Thom Brooks and Carol Gould, and includes the following sections:

I Guidelines for Journals

II Guidelines for Authors

III Guidelines for Referees

IV Editorial Practices Related to Copyright and Publication.

Thanks to all those who worked on and deliberated over the Statement!
