The magazine, founded in 1985, has become one of the main forums for clinical, scientific and theoretical articles related to the field of mental health. For 30 years the magazine has published countless articles on core topics of Puerto Rican psychology, such as psychopathology, psychotherapy, psychological measurement, community work, industrial-organizational psychology, social stigma, sexuality, studies of clinical cases, as well as countless discussions on core areas of psychology.
The editorial board has recently decided to present the magazine in an Open Access format, which means that anyone can have immediate access to all the published material. This is an important step because it will make the editorial content available at the international level.
The magazine is a peer-reviewed journal and the members of its editorial board are nationally recognized experts. Dr. Alfonso Martínez-Taboas, its editor, has been a member of more than a dozen editorial boards and has vast experience in editorial endeavors.
The magazine is indexed in Latin Index and one goal for the coming year is to index it into 5 or 6 additional places.
A panel discussion was held last October at Albizu University to celebrate the magazine´s 30th anniversary. Five experts with extensive publishing experience participated in it. They were Dr. Alfonso Martínez-Taboas, Dr. José Rodríguez Gómez, Dr. Cynthia García-Coll, Dr. Guillermo Bernal (editor of the Puerto Rican Journal of Psychology) and Dr. Ramón Rodríguez. Questions often raised by graduate students who wish to publish articles in professional journals were answered during this special event.
