International Perspectives in Psychology: Research, Practice, Consultation (IPP) is the official journal of Division 52 (International Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. IPP publishes peer-reviewed articles on research that examines human behaviour and experiences around the globe from a psychological perspective. It publishes intervention strategies that use psychological science to improve the lives of people around the world.
The journal promotes the use of psychological science that is contextually informed, culturally inclusive, and dedicated to serving the public interest. The world’s problems are imbedded in economic, environmental, political, and social contexts. IPP incorporates empirical findings from education, medicine, political science, public health, psychology, sociology, gender and ethnic studies, and related disciplines. The journal addresses international and global issues, including:
- inter-group relations
- disaster response
- societal and national development
- environmental conservation
- emigration and immigration
- social and workplace environments
- policy and decision making
- poverty and economic justice
- the experiences and needs of disadvantaged groups
IPP features public significance statements, which allow authors greater control over how their work is
interpreted by and impacts key audiences globally and locally – including practitioners, policy makers,
news media, and members of the public. Articles can be standard or shorter policy briefs. In the spirit of improving the lives of people around the world, these statements identify why an article’s findings are important to helping to meet one or more of the 2016–2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
IPP authors benefit from exceptional support, expertise, and resources provided by the American
Psychological Association. Further, the journal itself benefits from worldwide exposure as a publication
of the Association. Through both print and electronic access, articles published in IPP are available to a global audience of more than 3,000 institutions and 80 million potential readers. All articles are indexed in PsycINFO and Scopus, and full text is available in PsycARTICLES. Full-text access is also granted to health professionals in developing regions through the World Health Organization’s HINARI programme, which provides access to individuals in more than 100 countries, areas, and territories.
