Call for Papers: Psychology from the Margins

Exploring untold stories of social justice and traditionally underrepresented groups in psychology.

Submissions Deadline: November 1, 2020

Mission statement:

Psychology from the Margins is a peer reviewed, student-led, student-edited journal that provides an outlet for articles addressing the history of research, practice, and advocacy in psychology. The journal highlights stories that have been unrepresented or underrepresented by other historical narratives. It features scholarly work addressing the history of psychology especially in areas related to social justice, social issues, and social change.

We encourage contributions that draw attention to the impact of traditionally marginalized groups on the development of psychological research, practice, and advocacy. This includes narratives, biographies, commentary, and reviews related to traditionally marginalized groups and social justice issues throughout the history of psychology. Manuscripts should be between 20 to 40 pages in length (not including references). Additionally, issue three is welcoming articles that address the broad question “A look back, lessons learned, what can historical research tell us about contemporary problems.”

Example topics may include:

  • biographies of psychologists from underrepresented groups
  • historical contributions of marginalized psychologists
