Psi Beta Research Journal - Brief Reports

The Psi Beta Journal of Research (PBJR) is a national, independent, peer-reviewed student research journal established in 2021. Our mission is to peer-review, publish, and index scholarly manuscripts that describe psychological research conducted by undergraduates. We assign a unique, permanent DOI to every article.

Undergraduate research is a high-impact practice that promotes student retention and academic success. PBJR maintains high standards for content, has a rigorous review process and provides content access to the public and professionals.

PBJR accepts submissions only from Psi Beta members. Submissions must feature IRB-approved psychological research conducted under the supervision of a psychology professor and written to conform to APA style (7th Edition).
