Contributions to Psychology Quarterly should be sent to Please follow the guidelines below:

Psychology Quarterly publishes articles on human nature, academics, psychology in everyday life, life coaching, counseling, philosophy, anthropology, evolution, and well-being, as well as commentary on classic and new psychology research. We do not accept poetry or fiction and do not publish political commentary or hit pieces.


The “Journey” section of the magazine will highlight psychologists’ academic journeys with personal anecdotes. This section aims to encourage psychology students and give them a closer look at their chosen profession through the personal experiences of those who have traveled a similar path. Psychologists, coaches, counselors, and other healthcare professionals are invited to share their experiences with our young readers.

All other sections

Anthropology, philosophy, religion, biology, evolution, and history are all intertwined with psychology. You are welcome to contribute articles that connect psychology to any other field of study that psychology students might find interesting and relevant. Your submission will explicitly connect to a psychological principle/s.
We welcome commentary on the most recent psychology research and findings. Psychology Quarterly will also feature counseling studies and seek contributions from experienced counselors and psychotherapists to share their insights. In summary, we will accept:

  • Long-form essays (opinion pieces and academic)
  • Book summaries
  • Research summaries
  • Psychology lessons for IGCSE Ordinary Level and Advanced Level.
  • Lessons for Psychology undergraduates – especially articles that encourage qualitative research.

Word count, language, and style

Psychology Quarterly publishes articles ranging in length from 750 to 2,500 words that are appropriate for our target audience. This audience includes psychology students aged 16 and up, therefore, we encourage using appropriate language.

Each paragraph should make a valid point and the first paragraph should capture the reader’s attention immediately.

We anticipate that all submissions will be understandable to lay readers.


Footnotes and endnotes will not be published in Psychology Quarterly. The electronic version of the article should include hyperlinked citations and other external references according to APA 7th edition style. A full list of references is expected for all submissions except for articles in the “Journey” section. The e-magazine will have only hyperlinked citations and the printed magazine will have a list of references.

Pieces may be reposted elsewhere with the author’s and Psychology Quarterly’s written permission.


A minimum of LKR10,000 is paid to published authors per article. Articles published in the “Write Club” section do not fall into this category as it is a section for highlighting the writing talents of members who have been coached free of charge by The Wellness Center and Psychology Quarterly staff.

Authors who email us should include their entire draft submission. We will not commission future (prospective) articles.

In the “Contributors” section, we include a photograph of the author. If your article is accepted for publication, please send a photograph of yourself.

Following review, our staff editors may ask accepted authors for additional drafts. An article will not be published in Psychology Quarterly until the author has approved the final edit.

All authors will receive a response from Psychology Quarterly within a week.

We are excited to collaborate with you. Pitch your work to
