About the Journal

Translational Issues in Psychological Science (TPS), is a journal co-sponsored by the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS).  The journal has a two-fold mission – the publication of translational psychological research on current issues and the mentoring of graduate students and postdocs in all aspects of the publication process. As a part of TPS’s unique mentoring role, psychology graduate students serve as the Associate Editors for each issue and are the majority of manuscript reviewers. Additionally, each manuscript submitted to TPS must have a student author/co-author. To achieve the translational research aim, each manuscript must describe how its research findings, or the body of research that is described, can be applied to one or more sectors -- education, organizational settings,  healthcare, policy making etc.
