The International Journal of Psychology is the journal of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS) and is edited by the IUPsyS. Its purpose is to circulate scientific information within and among subdisciplines of psychology and to foster the development of psychological science around the world. The main part of each issue is devoted to empirical and theoretical papers in various fields of scientific psychology. Fields covered include general psychology (perception, learning, cognitive processes, language etc.), neuropsychology, developmental psychology, as well as social, biological, and cross-cultural psychology. The journal emphasises basic research and theory rather than technical and applied problems. With the aim of overcoming local limitations in psychology, the Journal is also devoted to international discussions of theories and methods on which psychologists from various countries and regions may differ. Many of IJP's issues include a second section, the International Platform for Psychologists, which provides an opportunity to exchange news and opinions on psychology as an academic and applied profession. This section also contains information about the IUPsyS, about major international meetings, and about the activities of the National Psychological Societies. Finally it offers an opportunity to express opinions and to discuss internationally significant psychological issues. There is now a new United Nations section within the International Platform for Psychologists. The Journal occasionally publishes a special issue, guest edited by specialists, devoted to a single topic.
