Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research

Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research ® (CPJ) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to advance knowledge and practice in all areas of consulting psychology (including but not limited to coaching, assessment, leadership, corporate consulting, consulting to schools, team consulting, etc.) by publishing high-quality, evidence-based research for consulting practice as well as theoretical articles and select case studies. All submissions must have relevance for consulting psychology in at least one area that the field addresses (individual, group, and/or organizational/systemic).

The journal is international in scope and is uniquely placed to reach both academic and consulting practitioner audiences. Articles in the following areas are welcomed:

  • theoretical/conceptual research with implications for consulting
  • original research regarding consultation
  • in-depth reviews of the research and literature in specific areas of consultation practice
  • case studies demonstrating the application of innovative consultation methods and strategies that highlight critical or often overlooked issues or have unusual features that would be of general interest to consultants
  • research on consultation practice development
  • manuscripts addressing the unique challenges encountered by consulting psychologists in applying their knowledge and skill to the problems of clients

Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research is published by the APA's Journals Program. APA authors benefit from exceptional support, knowledge, and resources and enjoy a worldwide exposure: Upon publication, CPJ articles are distributed to individuals and organizations internationally through our PsycINFO® and PsycARTICLES® databases, the most comprehensive and widely used psychological databases in the world. Through print and electronic access, articles published in CPJ are available to a global audience of over 3,000 institutions and 60 million potential readers. In addition to APA’s own databases, all CPJ is also accessible through ProQuest, EBSCO, Ovid, and ScienceDirect, among other platforms.

Although CPJ does not yet have an impact factor, it is part of a growing number of major abstracting and indexing databases that are accessible to academics, consultants, and practitioners.

Additional information about the journal is available on the CPJ web page.

Submitted manuscripts must be written in the style outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.), must not have been previously published, and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

You may also proceed directly to our electronic Manuscript Submission Portal.

I hope you will consider submitting your paper for review by the Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research.
