Psynopsis

Psynopsis is Canada’s Psychology Magazine. Each of its quarterly issues focuses on a particular area of psychological research and/or practice with relevance, not only to the discipline and profession, but also to the range of stakeholders who may rely on or benefit from the work of Canada’s psychologists. Psynopsis accepts submissions of 400-900 words relevant to the theme or appropriate for one of our regular columns (i.e. Psychology in the Spotlight, Have Your Say, Campus Profile, etc.). Please see our editorial guidelines for further information.

In an effort to publish a breadth of articles and avoid duplication of topic area, before making your submission, please contact Managing Editor, Carly Brockington at psynopsis@cpa.ca to discuss the content of your intended submission.

A note to our authors: We want to thank you for your flexibility about the recent changes in publication dates and topics. While many of you had not yet written your pieces, some had and were understandably inconvenienced. We live in challenging times and we all want to do our best to lend psychology to the problems societies face. We felt that the change in the Psynopsis schedule was important for psychology to weigh in on time sensitive topics. We apologize that it may have also caused some inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

*Psynopsis is calling for articles concerning the issue of climate change in relation to environmental attitudes/concern, behaviour change, climate anxiety and mental health, biophilia and nature relatedness, sustainable design, or student initiatives/groups related to sustainability. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of environmental and conservation psychology, we are open to other topics beyond those listed. Articles should describe research, service initiatives, and/or educational strategies, successes, and lessons learned.
