The Special Issue Spotter

We trawl the web for the latest psychology journal special issues so you don’t have to:

Issues in cross-cultural assessment (Australian Psychologist).

Special Section on Out-of-Body Experiences (Cortex).

Emerging Data Analysis (Journal of Memory and Language). New data analysis techniques in the field of memory and language. From the editorial: “We hope that this collection of articles will provide readers of the journal with an array of statistical strategies to improve the sophistication, power, and validity of the analytic methods they use in evaluating data. Authors of the papers were specifically encouraged to make the conceptual underpinnings of the techniques accessible to a wide readership and to provide clear examples of how the procedures can be applied to particular designs and data types.”

Dedicated to the Memory of Arthur L. Benton (Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology). Benton was a pioneer in the field of clinical neuropsychology. From the editorial, written by his daughter: “My father would have loved the papers in this issue, as they address many of his favorite topics—test development, hemispheric asymmetries, localization, and, yes, Gerstmann syndrome. Most likely, however, he would have wanted to continue collaborating with his cherished friends and mentoring the students with whom he worked so closely. May his name be for a blessing on all their future endeavours.”

New Technologies in the Prevention and Treatment of Substance Use Problems (Drug and Alcohol Review).
