About the Journal

International Review of Theoretical Psychologies (IRTP) is an open access, peer reviewed journal that publishes academic articles originally presented at a conference of the International Society of Theoretical Psychology (ISTP) and subsequently rewritten as articles, peer-reviewed, revised and edited. IRTP seeks to provide access to academic work in theoretical, meta-theoretical and philosophical discussions in psychology of all kinds and in all their varieties.

IRTP publishes one volume every two years, composed by different issues. Each volume reflects an emphasis on a contemporary broad theme, which was chosen for the most recent ISTP conference.

We welcome original articles that have not been published or are not under peer review elsewhere. Submissions should be made following biannual special issue call for papers.

Each article meets high academic and ethical standards, but represents the view of its authors.

IRTP provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. IRTP does not take any charge for submission, review or publishing of articles.
