New directions of trends in psychology'



Luisa F. Habigzang

Editor-in-Chief. Pontifícia Universidade Católica, Porto Alegre, RS, Brasil



Dear Readers, Authors, and Reviewers,

In this last issue of 2019, I am pleased to share that Trends in Psychology will be published in partnership with Springer. The contract between Springer and the Brazilian Psychological Society (SBP) was signed this year and we are in transition to this new phase that will soon be inaugurated. SBP reafirms, through this contract, the objective of expanding the internationalization of the Journal and contributing to the dissemination of scientific knowledge.

From October 25, 2019, article submissions will be made only through the Springer plataform. We invite everyone to visit the Trends in Psychology's page ( to check the guidelines for submissions and subscriptions. It is important to notice that SBP members will have free access to the Journal and that authors will not have fees for publication.

I'm sure that this partnership between SBP and Springer optimize the editorial evaluation process and will enhance the impact of Trends in Psychology. Thus, we will continue to fulfill our mission of disseminating quality research in psychology that contributes to student education, evidence-based practice development, and the sharing of scientific findings with the academic community.

SBP and I would like to publicly thank the editorial board that has devoted a competent work for the Journal along with the reviewers who contributed to the quality of the evaluated articles. We thank the authors for their confidence in our work. Finally, we would like to give special thanks to Angeli Marasa, Secretary General, for the exquisite work done, as well as Conceição Paz Duarte, responsible for text editing, and Clotilde Sbardelotto, responsible for the journals' layout. A journal stands out when ethical and committed relationships are established between authors, editorial board, reviewers, production team, and readers. The history of Trends in Psychology reflects the quality of such relationships that will be consolidated with these new directions!

We look forward for your access in our new page!
