Articles for publication consideration on Psych Central Professional must be written for a mental health or psychology professional audience (focused on either clinicians or researchers). If your article refers to research, we prefer such research citations be made at the end of the article in APA style. (Do not use this address to submit non-professional articles to Psych Central — go here instead.)

We are generally looking for articles with lengths between 700 and 1,200 words, but will consider the submission of longer pieces if the topic warrants it. Articles for Psych Central Professional should generally include a few references or interviews with experts (but we’ll review even those without such), or, alternatively, should speak from practical or professional experience on a topic. We also publish op-eds.

All article submissions are generally reviewed and published within 3 weeks’ time, and may be edited for clarity, grammar and length before being published. By submitting an article to us, you grant Psych Central certain rights.

We will publish a biographical paragraph and your photo at the end of any piece you submit of no longer than 100 words that may link back to your website, company, or book.
