Modern Psychological Studies
Modern Psychological Studies (MPS) is a psychological journal devoted exclusively to publishing manuscripts by undergraduate students. We are continuously seeking quality manuscripts for publication, and will consider manuscripts in any area of psychology. Although MPS primarily focuses on results from experimental research, there are also publication opportunities for theoretical papers, literature reviews and book reviews.
MPS is edited and reviewed by undergraduate students at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. We strive to make the journal submission process a learning experience and to encourage quality research. By placing the journal in the hands of undergraduates, the editorial staff at MPS wishes to emphasize to fellow undergraduates: meaningful, quality work, and communicating that work to interested students and professionals. The journal is published twice a year and the annual subscription rate is $30.
