Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science publishes innovative developments in research methods, practices and conduct across the full range of areas and topics within psychological science. AMPPS publishes new types of empirical work that reflect the various approaches to research across the field. AMPPS encourages integration of methodological and analytical questions and brings the latest methodological advances to non-methodology experts across all areas of the field.

AMPPS seeks submissions that are accessible to readers with varying research interests and are representative of the broad research interests in the field, including:

  • Articles that communicate advances in methods, practices, and metascience
  • Empirical scientific best practices
  • Tutorials, commentaries, and simulation studies on new techniques and research tools
  • Papers that bring advances from a specialized subfield to a broader audience
  • Registered Replication Reports

The Association for Psychological Science (APS) is the leading international organization dedicated to advancing scientific psychology across disciplinary and geographic borders. APS members provide a richer understanding of the world through their research, teaching, and application of psychological science. APS is passionate about supporting psychological scientists in these pursuits, which it does by sharing cutting-edge research across all areas of the field through its journals and conventions; promoting the integration of scientific perspectives within psychological science and with related disciplines; fostering global connections among its members; engaging the public with research to promote broader understanding and awareness of psychological science; and advocating for increased support for psychological science in the public policy arena. More than 30,000 leading psychological researchers, as well as students and teachers, have made APS their scientific home. www.psychologicalscience.org 


Articles in AMPPS will not compete with those in other APS journals. For example, empirical articles in AMPPS may involve contributions from multiple research teams or be of larger scale than those published in traditional empirical journals. Other AMPPS articles will cover current practices and considerations relevant to open science in psychology, and these will be unique to the journal. In addition, AMPPS publishes Registered Replication Reports (RRRs; see below) and multi-lab collaborative studies (e.g., adversarial collaborations, consortium studies, team efforts at replication). AMPPS welcomes metascience contributions that examine research practices in the field.

All articles in AMPPS will strive to adhere to best practices for open and transparent research, with de-identified data, code, and materials publicly available to the fullest extent possible. Empirical submissions to AMPPS are expected to be eligible for all three open-science badges available in APS journals (Open Data, Open Materials, Preregistration; see the APS Open Practice Badges page). Authors are encouraged to provide video recordings of their testing settings and experimental procedures.

Not all analyses must be confirmatory for an article to earn a Preregistration badge. However, all confirmatory hypothesis tests are expected to be preregistered in submissions to AMPPS (e.g., articles might include a study reporting exploratory tests, accompanied by a preregistered replication). AMPPS also publishes analyses of preexisting data sets, not all of which can be preregistered. Authors should indicate clearly which hypotheses and analyses were preregistered and which were not. Authors with questions about preregistration should read this discussion written by the editors of APS’s three empirical journals.

The online versions of articles on the AMPPS website can include interactive content such as videos, Shiny applications, and working code snippets; the print and PDF versions of articles with interactive content will contain a link to it. AMPPS encourages the use of interactive content, particularly in tutorials. AMPPS authors may deposit materials in a permanent repository of their choice.

Manuscripts must be submitted through the AMPPS submission website. If, after reviewing these guidelines, authors have questions about the appropriateness of a manuscript for AMPPS, they are encouraged to email the editor at ampps.editor@gmail.com to inquire.
