The Official Journal of the Society for the Study of School Psychology (SSSP)

The Journal of School Psychology publishes original empirical articles and critical reviews of the literature on research and practices relevant to psychological and behavioral processes in school settings. The Journal of School Psychology presents research on intervention mechanisms and approaches; schooling effects on the development of social, cognitive, mental health-, and achievement-related outcomes; assessment; and consultation. Submissions from a variety of disciplines are encouraged.

The Journal of School Psychology editorial team strives to publish the most methodologically and statistically sophisticated research in the pages of the journal in order to contribute to the science of school psychology. Full-length manuscripts presenting original quantitative and qualitative research are ideal to meet this goal. Scholarly narrative reviews of the literature on research and practices relevant to psychological and behavioral processes in school settings may also be appropriate. The Journal of School Psychology does not typically publish test reviews, book reviews, obituaries, or comments. Questions about the appropriateness of a manuscript for the Journal of School Psychology should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief:
