Psychology professor selected as associate editor of psychology journal

December 9, 2011

Loyola University New Orleans psychology professor Janet Matthews, Ph.D., has been selected as the new associate editor of “Professional Psychology: Research and Practice,” published by the American Psychological Association.

Matthews, who was already a member of the publication’s editorial board, was nominated for the associate editor position by incoming editor, Ron Brown, Ph.D., provost at Wayne State University. The APA’s publications and communications board approved the nomination, which is based on Matthew’s background and scholarship.

“I was truly honored to be nominated for this position. I know it will require a major time commitment on my part, but to me, this work really benefits my teaching by keeping me abreast of the latest writings in my specialty that are not yet in print,” Matthews said. “I also have a special fondness for this journal because my first publication, just before I completed my doctorate, was in ‘Professional Psychology: Research and Practice.’”

Considered one of the top journals in clinical psychology, “Professional Psychology: Research and Practice” publishes articles on the application of psychology, including the scientific underpinnings of the profession of psychology. The journal also publishes brief reports on research or practice in professional psychology.
