Australian Community Psychologist

The Australian Community Psychologist (ACP) is a peer reviewed journal that publishes work that is of relevance to community psychologists and others interested in the field. Research reports should be methodologically sound. Theoretical or area review papers are welcomed, as are letters, brief reports and papers by newer contributors to the discipline. Contributions towards the four sections of the journal are sought. ACP is published twice per year. Usually, one issue is themed and the second is a general issue.


Contributions are sought that reflect state of the art reviews of professional and applied areas and reviews and essays on matters of general relevance to community psychologists. Manuscripts are between 4,000 and 10,000 words, including all tables, figures and references.

Research Reports

ACP encourages innovation in research and seeks manuscripts of original work that reflect the diversity of methodologies, methods and theoretical frameworks. They are between 4,000 and 10,000 words, including all tables, figures and references.

Practice Issues

This section publishes individual manuscripts and collections of manuscripts which address matters of general, professional and public relevance, techniques and approaches in psychological practice, professional development issues, and professional and public policy issues.
