Publishing model:

Aims and scope

NEW journal, published by Springer, as of 2020.   

cultura & psyché - Journal of Cultural Psychology is an interdisciplinary academic journal of cultural psychology. It promotes the understanding of psychology as an interdisciplinary discipline with roots in cultural studies. The journal thus enhances the established perspective on psychology as a life science.

cultura & psyché - Journal of Cultural Psychology addresses scholars in psychology, cultural anthropology/ethnology, history, sociology and philosophy and related fields who investigate phenomena of the mind and psychological topics in a socio-cultural, historical or epistemological context.

The journal thus offers an interdisciplinary discourse on the significance of culture for basic psychological functions such as identity, social behaviour, inter- and intrasubjective experiences, cognitive processes, and emotions. In particular, newer theoretical, methodological and interdisciplinary approaches of the various cultural studies are desired, which open up new perspectives on psychological experience, behaviour and events in a cultural context.

cultura & psyché – Journal of Cultural Psychology is open to hermeneutical and qualitative methods of research on cultural material and immaterial entities in relation to their psychological significance. It encourages the submission of original research, review articles and case studies, which will undergo a thorough double-blind peer review process by established researchers in the respective field.

Articles accepted for publication in this electronic journal are published continuously, which guarantees fast publication times. The articles will be compiled in two issues per year.

The language of publication is predominantly German. English and French contributions are also welcome.
