About the Title

Keep abreast of the current research in assessment science and practice with Assessment, the journal that brings you important articles derived from psychometric research, clinical comparisons, theoretical formulations and literature reviews that fall within the broad domain of clinical and applied psychological assessment. The journal presents information of direct relevance to the use of assessment measures, including the practical applications of measurement methods, test development and interpretation practices, and advances in the description and prediction of human behavior. In addition, the journal examines the role of psychological assessment in advancing major issues in clinical science and practice.

The scope of the journal extends from the evaluation of individuals in clinical, counseling, health, and forensic settings.

Assessment publishes articles advancing clinical assessment science and practice. The emphasis of this journal is on publication of information of relevance to the use of assessment measures, including test development, validation, and interpretation practices. The scope of the journal includes research that can inform assessment practices in mental health, forensic, medical, and other applied settings. Papers that focus on the assessment of cognitive and neuropsychological functioning, personality, and psychopathology are invited. Most papers published in Assessment report the results of original empirical research, however integrative review articles and scholarly case studies will also be considered. Papers focusing on a) new assessment methodologies and techniques for both researchers and practitioners, b) how assessment methods and research informs understanding of major issues in clinical psychology such as the structure, classification, and mechanisms of psychopathology, and c) multi-method assessment research and the integration of assessment methods in research and practice are of particular interest. The journal also encourages submissions introducing useful, novel, and non-redundant instruments or demonstrating how existing instruments have applicability in new research or applied contexts. All submissions should provide strong rationales for their efforts and articulate important implications for assessment science and/or practice.
Articles are invited that target empirical assessment of clinically relevant phenomena such as behaviors, personality characteristics, and diagnoses. Research subjects may represent diverse age and socioeconomic categories and both clinical and nonclinical populations. Research reviews and methodologically-focused papers will be considered.
