Submit your latest research and join the open access African Journal of Psychological Assessment (AJOPA) by submitting your original manuscripts online at ajopa.org.
The African Journal of Psychological Assessment (AJOPA) focusses on original research studies, theoretical papers, test reviews and methods papers in the areas of psychometrics and psychological assessment. Manuscripts must demonstrate a clear contribution to the field and be relevant to the African context. Manuscripts can focus on amongst others ethics in assessment, the establishment of the psychometric properties of an instrument, methods in assessment, research on core issues in psychological assessment (e.g. assessment in low resource settings, multicultural assessment, acculturation and assessment, language and assessment, assessing people with disabilities). They can also focus on specific areas in assessment (e.g. cognitive, personality, vocational, intelligence, aptitude) and/or particular settings (clinical, educational, forensic, organisational, and neuropsychological assessment). AJOPA serves as a means of combining the current disparate research being conducted as well as opening up opportunities for collaboration and indigenous knowledge production. The journal will be of value both locally and internationally since the submissions will interrogate the current Eurocentric and Western cultural hegemonic practices that dominate the field of psychological assessment.
