The Guide to Publishing in Psychology Journals is a complete guide to writing psychology articles for publication. It goes beyond the formal requirements to the tacit or unspoken knowledge that is key to writing effective articles and to gaining acceptance by quality journals. Thus, the information in this book is of a kind that cannot be found in publication manuals or formal guides to writing. The book emphasizes empirical articles, but also discusses theoretical articles and the role of theory in empirical articles, as well as literature-review articles. The editor and the authors of book chapters all have edited major journals in the field of psychology. The book deals with general issues in the writing of articles, as well as issues pertinent to specific parts of articles, such as titles, abstracts, introductions, methods, results, discussions, and more
