Cogent Psychology is a pioneering and dynamic Open Access journal for the psychology community, publishing original research, reviews, and replications that span the full spectrum of psychological inquiry. In 2021, it relaunched with a new Editor-in-Chief and Section Editors with an exciting vision to combine open access publishing with open research practices. As such, the journal welcomes traditional and new article formats, including Registered Reports, Brief Replication Reports, Review Articles, and Brief Reports. This broader range of formats is designed to reflect the evolving nature of psychological research and open science approaches. To the best of our knowledge, no other psychology journal offers such a distinctive combination of article publishing formats. Moreover, we welcome submissions in nine key areas of psychological science: Clinical Psychology, Cognitive & Experimental Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Educational Psychology, Health Psychology, Neuropsychology, Personality & Individual Differences, Social Psychology and Work, Industrial & Organisational Psychology.
