Manuscript Submission

All submitted manuscripts should contain original research not previously published and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers may be written in English. All submissions must be accompanied by abstracts of the authors' manuscripts on related subjects that are in press or currently under editorial review.

Community Psychology in Global Perspective operates an online submission and peer review system that allows authors to submit articles online and track their progress via a web interface. IMPORTANT: Please check whether you already have an account in the system before trying to create a new one.

All papers must be submitted via the ONLINE SYSTEM (link).

When submitting a revised manuscript, please delete previous versions of uploaded documents. If your manuscript is accepted for publication we will use the files you upload to typeset your article.

Manuscript Style

CPGP publishes articles in a range of formats, including reports of empirical qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods studies (Research articles and Short Research Reports), Literature Reviews, Perspective and Opinion articles, Commentaries, and Reports of Community Practice.

Abstracts should not exceed 250 words.

Manuscripts should not normally exceed:

5,000 words (not including references) for SHORT RESEARCH REPORTS and COMMENTARIES (Commentaries draw attention to a criticism of a previously published article, book, or report, explaining why it interested them and how it might be illuminating for readers).

- 7,000 words (not including references) for RESEARCH ARTICLES, REPORTS OF COMMUNITY PRACTICES, PERSPECTIVE  and OPINION ARTICLES (Perspective articles are scholarly reviews of fundamental concepts or ideas in a field. These are usually essays that present a personal point of view critiquing widespread notions pertaining to a field - Opinion articles present the author’s viewpoint on the interpretation, analysis, or methods used in a particular study. Opinion articles are usually based on constructive criticism and should be backed by evidence).

- 9,000 (not including references) for LITERATURE REVIEWS.

The word count includes abstract, references and tables.


Details of the manuscript style are contained in the TEMPLATE (download).

Authors who would like to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider using the services of a professional English-language editing company. Manuscripts that do not meet high written-English quality standards cannot be considered for publication.

Reference Style. The APA system of citing sources indicates the author's last name and the date, in parentheses, within the text of the paper.

All references must be complete and accurate. Where possible the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) for the reference should be included at the end of the reference. Online citations should include date of access. If necessary, cite unpublished or personal work in the text but do not include it in the reference list. References should be listed in the following style:
