  1. The Journal of Psychology and Christianity (JPC) is the official peer-reviewed journal for the Christian Association for Psychological Studies (CAPS). Published since 1982, material in the following areas will be considered for publication:
    1. Theoretical and research articles focusing on issues in psychology, theology, sociology, marital and family studies, social work, and related fields which can be useful to academic and applied communities in those disciplines.
    2. Theoretical and research articles which have bearing on the relationship between psychology and Christian faith, including the interface of psychology with theology and the psychology of religion.
    3. Applied articles treating current issues in clinical practice, pastoral counseling, family and community services, and similar matters involving the helping professions. Articles dealing with the application of psychological theory and data to the work of the church, missions, and other Christian organizations.
    4. Responses to current or past journal articles.
    5. Book and journal reviews in fields relevant to psychology and theology.
  2. Manuscripts should be electronically submitted through Scholastica. A brief biography including research and/or professional interests of no more than five lines must be submitted on separate pages. JPC utilizes a blind review system. Thus, authors’ names, institutions, and other identifying information should appear on only one of the two submitted copies. All manuscripts should be in accordance with the guidelines of the American Psychological Association Publication Manual, 7th ed.
