Submit an Article!

Dear potential contributor to The San Diego Psychologist,

Thank you for your interest in submitting an article for publication.

The current format of the Newsletter is theme-based, and we typically solicit articles relevant to the theme of a given issue. However, we will find a way to publish any article that is relevant or interesting, so please reach out.

If you wish to submit an article for consideration, please fill out the form below, or email the editor directly at 




The San Diego Psychologist is not a peer-reviewed publication, and any decisions to publish or decline an article lie with the Editor and the SDPA Board of Directors.

Please know that an online newsletter of this nature is generally a public forum, so may be distributed without your express permission.

We ask that the articles be typically 1,500-2,000 words long, with up to 10 references and/or reading materials.

We encourage original articles, but we will also consider publishing a version of an article you may have published elsewhere.

Please submit a two-line bio and a photograph with each article.
