About the journal

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.

European Journal of Psychological Assessment is archived with Portico.


Facts and Figures


“Over the past few years the European Journal of Psychological Assessment (EJPA) has developed into one of the world’s leading assessment journals, publishing outstanding research from various fields of psychology. The wide range of subjects and methods is a unique feature of the journal, and at the same time a challenge. The growth in the journal’s reputation and the associated increase in high-quality submissions have also led us to decide to increase the number of issues we publish, from 4 to 6 issues per year, starting in 2017. I am greatly looking forward to meeting these challenges as the new Editor-in-Chief – with the help of our great Editorial Board!”

Samuel Greiff, Luxembourg, Editor-in-Chief
