About this journal


Basic Information


Psicodebate is an open access biannual (june 1st and december 1st) scientific journal published by the Social Sciences Faculty of Universidad de Palermo. The papers published in Psicodebate cover topics of Psychology and other social and human sciences. Our goal is to communicate the current debates and the latest scientific findings in these topics.
We receive papers in spanish and in english that address psychology issues (treatment, assessment, therapy, theory, diagnosis, among others) and other social and human sciences (sociology, psychiatry, among others). Types of articles accepted are those propose by the American Psychological Association (APA): empirical studies, literature reviews, theoretical articles, methodological articles, case studies. Empirical articles will be preferred.
Submitted papers go through a double-bind peer review process in which they are confidentially assessed by experts. Reviewers informed about the quality of the paper and recommend it to be accepted or rejected. Articles may be directly accepted, accepted with revisions required (major/minor) or rejected. Reviewing process usually takes up to 8 weeks. With this digital edition on Open Journal System we embrace the promotion of open access to scientific publishing nationally and internationally. Open access allows for a greater interchange among professionals and, in consequence, an increment in scientific knowledge. The rejection rate in 2016 was 23%.
