Content: Military Psychology is the bimonthly journal of Division 19 (Society for Military Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. The journal seeks to publish groundbreaking articles on research and clinical practice addressing the application of psychological principles to the military environment. The journal publishes research articles, reviews, communications, and case studies having military applications in the areas of Clinical and Counseling Psychology, Health, Social and Personality Psychology, Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Human Factors. Timely topics of major concern to military psychology will also be covered in special journal issues.

Military Psychology is international in scope, and the editors encourage submission of articles that address research being carried out in a variety of national settings.

Contributions will be considered under two major formats:

Regular Articles include Research Articles and Reviews. Research articles contain the reports of original empirical research or quantitative systematic reviews (e.g. meta-analyses). Reviews include scholarly integrations of individual areas of empirical research that provide new insights into an area of military psychology. Regular articles should not exceed 30 pages, inclusive of all text, abstract, references, tables, and figures.

Brief Reports include Short Research Articles, Clinical Practice Notes, and Communications. Short Research Articles are original in their empirical or theoretical contributions but are smaller in scope than a Regular Article or Review. These articles may describe work that is largely confirmatory, advance knowledge arising as by-products of broader studies, or represent new research techniques and methodologies. Clinical Practice Notes include case studies, theoretical articles, program development evaluations, and research articles of direct application for military psychologists in clinical settings. Communications include Information on policies and trends that affect the support and direction of research in military psychology. Brief reports should not exceed 20 pages, inclusive of all text, abstract, references, tables, and figures.

The review process is the same for Regular Articles and Brief Reports. Authors can indicate whether their manuscript should be considered as a Regular Article or a Brief Report. The Action Editor or Editor in Chief may recommend that a Regular Article be trimmed down to a Brief Report based on the judged contribution of the manuscript. Comments and Letters to the Editor will be published on a space-available basis.

Peer Review Policy: Once a manuscript is processed it is assigned a manuscript control number and given to an Action Editor (one of the Associate Editors) for editorial oversight. The Action Editor will oversee the review process, obtain review from two or more subject matter experts, prepare an editorial recommendation for the manuscript that is provided to the Editor-in-Chief for examination, and following approval by the Editor-in-Chief communicates the final decision to the author(s). The Editor-in-Chief oversees the processing of all articles submitted to the journal and ensures the decision letters are provided to authors in a timely manner.
