PsyCh Journal, China’s first international psychology journal has just launched and describes itself as the “flagship journal of the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences” – the only national psychology research institute in China – and is freely available during 2012 – read it online here….

The interpretOr understands that PsyCh J is looking for submissions from both within and outside of China. It’ll be interesting to see if the scope and range of this new J includes reporting on issues related to human rights, such as ethnic stereotyping, conformity and obedience to authority…could be that there are counterparts to Milgram, Zimbardo et al. just waiting to break through…we live in hope.
