Biological Psychology publishes original scientific papers on the biological aspects of psychological states and processes. Biological aspects include electrophysiology and biochemical assessments during psychological experiments as well as biologically induced changes in psychological function. Psychological investigations based on biological theories are also of interest. All aspects of psychological functioning, including psychopathology, are germane.
The Journal concentrates on work with human subjects, but may consider work with animal subjects if conceptually related to issues in human biological psychology. Empirical reports are the core of the Journal, but review articles as well as technical notes relevant to biological psychology are encouraged. A brief report section publishes well written papers of fewer than 1500 words with minimal delay from the submission date. Critical commentaries of relevance to our readership are also considered. Finally, Biological Psychology regularly publishes special issues on selected topics within its scope.
