INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Scope and policy

Psychology in society (PINS) aims to foster a socio-historical and critical theory perspective, by focusing on the theory and practice of psychology in the southern African context.

PINS intends to appeal to readers and writers interested in situating psychology within the society it operates in, both in terms of a critique of its social location and developing new ideas and forms of practice appropriate to psychology being a 'servant of society'.

In addition to articles, short discussions ("briefings"), and debates on previously published material, or on issues of the moment, are encouraged.

Authors are required to use non-sexist and non-discriminatory conventions in their contributions.

 

Form and preparation of manuscripts

Articles should not normally exceed 7500 words in length, excluding references. Book reviews, unless they are review articles, should not exceed 1 500 words.

PINS requires an electronic copy of the original submission of an article, and this must be in double spacing, and preferably in Arial, 12 font. All articles are published with 100-200 word Abstract, which must accompany the original submission of the article.

At the point of acceptance of an article the author/s must supply one printed copy, and one electronic copy in Arial, 12 font. The final accepted copy's pages must NOT be numbered, as PINS will add its own pagination format.

Prospective authors should initially send an electronic file of any contribution. Authors are required to comply with the format and style conventions as detailed in the PINS "Style guide for authors" - obtainable from the editor (grahame.hayes@gmail.com). Authors are required to submit their work, once accepted for publication, as an electronic file, together with ONE printed copy. PINS would prefer copy in MsWord format.

All articles are submitted, and then published, with 150-200 word abstracts. If appropriate we accept photographs; tables; figures; graphs. All these requirements are detailed in the "Style guide for authors" available at: http://www.pins.org.za/about.htm
