Previously published in two sections, Human Experimental Psychology (Section A) and Comparative and Physiological Psychology (B), the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology merged in 2006 to form a single journal.

The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology is a leading international journal that publishes original articles on any topic within the field of experimental psychology. The journal publishes Rapid Communication articles (under 3,000 words) reporting novel techniques or ground breaking results, as well as substantial experimental reports. The journal offers an open access option for authors called Open Select, approved by the Wellcome Trust and other funders.

Manuscripts including the use of functional brain imaging are also encouraged, as are papers reporting computational modelling of behavioural data. Review articles and theoretical treatments are also welcome.

QJEP offers a competitive publication time-scale. Accepted Rapid Communications have priority in the publication, and usually appear in print within a few months. We aim to publish all accepted (but uncorrected) articles online within seven days. Articles in their final form appear online, on our Latest Articles page, several months prior to paper publication.

Peer Review: All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is single blind and submission is online via ScholarOne Manuscripts.
