Accepts Contributions in Open Access


European Yearbook of the History of Psychology is a peer-reviewed international annual journal devoted to the history of psychology, and especially to the interconnection between historiographic survey and problems of epistemology. The journal welcomes contributions that offer precise reconstructions of specific moments, topics, and persons in the history of psychology via the recovery and critical analysis of archival as well as published sources. Critical editions of relevant primary texts or archival sources are also welcome. The national traditions in Europe are considered not only in their own right and in their interrelations, but also in their further connection to and confrontation with non-European research traditions. With this focus, the journal aims at uncovering paths to aid the understanding of the common roots of European scientific thought.

With an eye on the interdisciplinary nature of cultural studies, the journal pays special attention to those common areas between psychological research and its adjacent disciplines, in particular the human and the life sciences (philosophy, sociology, anthropology, psychiatry, physiology, neurology, biology, zoology, etc.).

Primarily addressing historians and philosophers of psychology, epistemologists, historians of philosophy, and historians of human sciences, the journal is also open to contributions from all areas of psychology which address a phenomenon or a topic relevant to the discipline of psychology considered from a historical perspective.

Besides original essays and short papers, the journal contains the following sections: Unpublished and archival material; Discussions (a space where authors can engage in dialogue with each other and discuss specific topics); Interviews; Book reviews and reading recommendations.

The European Yearbook of the History of Psychology is considered a "Class A Journal” (top-ranked journal) by the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes (ANVUR) in the academic fields of Theoretical Philosophy, Logic, History and Philosophy of Science, Aesthetics and Philosophy of Languages, History of Philosophy.

    Ethics, Malpractice and Authorship Statement

    Publication Policies and Ethical Principles

    Author’s duties

    The Journal’s policy prohibits an author from submitting the same manuscript for concurrent consideration by two or more publications. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

    Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper, having agreed to its submission for publication. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. Authors of accepted manuscripts are required to transfer the copyright to the Journal.

    Publication decisions and Editor’s duties

    The editorial board members of the Journal are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the Journal should be published. The editorial board is guided by the policies of the Journal’s publisher and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editorial board seeks the support of at least two reviewers in making this decision, according to a double-blind peer review procedure.

    An editor, at any time, must be evaluating manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, as well as scientific, academic, or political orientation of the authors.

    The editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editors’ own research without the expressed written consent of the author. When the editorial board is notified or discovers a significant problem regarding errors/ inaccuracy, undisclosed conflict of interest, plagiarism, in a published article, the editorial board will promptly notify the corresponding author and the publisher and will undertake the necessary actions to clarify the issue and in case of need to retract the paper or publish an Erratum.

    Peer reviewer’s duties

    Peer reviews assist the editors in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorised by the editor. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

    Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
