Publications

The Society for Community Research and Action has several publications dedicated to academic research and community practice. 

American Journal of Community Psychology (AJCP)

The American Journal of Community Psychology publishes original quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research; theoretical papers; empirical reviews; reports of innovative community programs or policies; and first person accounts of stakeholders involved in research, programs, or policy. The journal encourages submissions of innovative multi-level research and interventions, and encourages international submissions. The journal also encourages the submission of manuscripts concerned with underrepresented populations and issues of human diversity.

The Community Psychologist (TCP)

The TCP is the Society's  quarterly newsletter which provides an informal venue for SCRA members to exchange ideas and information. The newsletter usually includes brief reports and reflections on the practice of community research and action, and announcements of interest to members. It also features columns on a variety of topics including women's issues, public policy, international issues, students' concerns, racial and cultural affairs and job opportunities. 

Advances in Community Psychology: The SCRA Book Series

The mission of the Society for Community Research and Action Book Series is to create a publication venue that a) highlights the contributions of the field of community psychology and, more generally, community action, research, and practice; b) integrates current knowledge on pressing topics and priorities for the field; and c) offers a foundation for future directions in research and practice.
