PsySSA is proud to announce the latest edition to its publications – The African Journal of Psychological Assessment (AJOPA) published in conjunction with AOSIS.
AJOPA is intended to serve as a means of combining the current disparate research being conducted in psychometrics and psychological assessment in Africa. Further it is hoped that AJOPA will open up opportunities for collaboration and indigenous knowledge production. The journal will be of both local and international value since the submissions will interrogate the current Eurocentric and Western cultural hegemonic practices that dominate the field of psychological assessment and will lend much to international debates in psychological theory and assessment.
Manuscripts in the areas of psychometrics and psychological assessment are invited. Manuscript submissions must demonstrate a clear contribution to the field and must be of relevance to the African context. Manuscripts can focus on but are not limited to ethics in assessment, establishing the psychometric properties of an instrument, methods in assessment, research on core issues in psychological assessment (eg. assessment in low resource settings, multicultural assessment, acculturation and assessment, language and assessment, assessing people with disabilities) and/or specific areas in assessment (eg. cognitive, personality, vocational, intelligence, aptitude) and/or particular settings (clinical, educational, forensic, organisational, neuropsychological assessment).Manuscripts make take the form of original research studies, theoretical papers, test reviews and methods papers
AJOPA is fully open access and charges no article processing fees.
