European Journal of Psychological Assessment

The EJPA is the official organ of the European Association of Psychological Assessment (EAPA). It is also sponsored by the International Association of Applied Psychology (IAAP, Division 2)

The main purpose of the EJPA is to present important articles, which provide seminal information on both theoretical and applied developments in this field. Articles reporting the construction of new measures or an advancement of an existing measure are given priority. The journal is directed to practitioners as well as to academicians: The conviction of its editors is that the discipline of psychological assessment should, necessarily and firmly, be attached to the roots of psychological science, while going deeply into all the consequences of its applied, practice-oriented development.

Psychological assessment is experiencing a period of renewal and expansion, attracting more and more attention from both academic and applied psychology, as well as from political, corporate, and social organizations. The EJPA provides a meeting point for this movement, contributing to the scientific development of psychological assessment and to communication between professionals and researchers in Europe and worldwide. 

The journal presents clearly written original papers, reviews, and case studies in all domains of psychological assessment.
