Call for Papers on Asian Americans & Positive Psychology

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Dear Colleagues,

We are soliciting manuscripts to be featured in a special issue of the Asian American Journal of Psychology with the theme being “Asian Americans and Positive Psychology.”

The general focus will be on how positive psychology has impacted the study of Asian Americans, and how the study of Asian Americans has impacted positive psychology. We are particularly interested in works that offer new or innovative perspectives on a number of important topics,

  • including the importance of Asian Americans to positive psychology,
  • the usefulness of measuring unique Asian American strengths,
  • examining models of positive psychology for Asian Americans, and
  • the application of positive psychology practice/interventions in working with Asian Americans.

Although we are open to considering all types of scientific submissions, we are particularly interested in those that have a strong empirical basis.

Deadline for submissions is July 31, 2015.

All submissions for the special issue will undergo the same review process as any other manuscript submitted to Asian American Journal of Psychology. Submit manuscripts though the Manuscript Submission Portal.

Drs. Edward Chang and Paul Kwon will serve as Co-Editors for this special issue.

Because there may be other special issues in progress, it is important to appreciate that it may take a year or more before this special issue is published. Please feel free to contact any one of us (emails listed below) if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Edward C. Chang, Ph.D.,
Professor of Psychology
