Publishing in the best journals has never been easy, but many scholars – especially young scholars – feel that expectations for what constitutes good research are shifting and unclear, and that barriers to publication have never been higher. Drawing on my experience as editor of several different journals, including JPSP , I will share my perspective on factors that characterize successful submissions to top journals, and what you can do in the current climate to improve your chances of success. The continued dominance of North American authors in many of our top journals will also be considered, along with why this needs to change and how we might go about changing it.

Lynne Cooper is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Personality & Social Psychology: Personality Processes & Individual Differences, Curators’ Distinguished Professor at the University of Missouri, and former President of SPSP (Society for Personality & Social Psychology, 2017-2019). With more than 20+ years of editorial experience, she will share her insights about publishing in top journals.
