Editorial Process

What is your editorial process?

Our team follows a process made up of 4 steps.

  • The first step is choosing the subject about which we would like to write an article. To do this, we listen to feedback from our users, ask our target audience and carry out our own research.
  • The second step in our process is to start researching in order to study the latest information about the subject through peer-reviewed psychological journals, books and other material.
  • The third step is the creation of a draft by our team of authors based on the science learned through the research.
  • The fourth and final step consists in a review by a teammate psychologist that checks that the article has no mistakes. Once all steps have been completed, the article is published in our website.
  • Another possible additional step is the re-draft and re-publishing of the article when new studies come out that change the current state of knowledge in relation to the article's subject-matter.

How can I know the references of an article?

Simply go to the end of any article. You will find there the article's references section, right above the page's footer. Click on it and the references section will open fully. Then, you will be able to see the full list of references with every article that has been used in the page content. Also, you have a link to the APA's website where you can learn more or even access the article if you are interested on it.

What are your editorial principles and values?

Science-based knowledge

Psychology is a science that follows a rigorous process of observation, hypothesis, experimentation and results' evaluation and review. We only bring you content that is based on science and we know is real. If we were to add content that has not been proven yet, we will explicitly state this. We only do this in specific cases where the type of discussion goes beyond current science and requires some abstraction.

Updated information

The science of psychology and its related neuroscience are fields evolving very rapidly. We have this very present in all our editorial work. Therefore, our expert psychologists are always reviewing our published material and articles in order to ensure that our content is not simply up-to-date but reflecting the very latest advances in psychological science.

Peer-reviewed journals as our #1 source

Although we can use books and other type of information, we generally base every article in an interesting list of articles that have been published in important psychology journals which only publish articles that are based on science and are reviewed by a peer expert psychologist.

Curated knowledge

There is a ton of information out there on the internet, but only a small fraction of it is reliable and interesting. We do not spill over just any science published content. We select the best and most important information for our readers, and work through it thoroughly in order to present it in a manner that is enjoyable but highly enriching for the reader. You will not find another website that combines that in the same way.

What is your writing style?


We use only science-based information, but there are many ways you can convey that information. We try to do it in the most engaging possible way, and that means creating articles that resemble a conversation. Imagine speaking with a super highly skilled professor from a University that explains to you the most interesting things about a subject, all based on the knowledge gained through many years of research.

Enriching to enable learning

All our articles try to convey a lot of information but in a way that is easy to digest. We want our reader to think that the page was easy to follow, and yet not be overloaded by the amount of knowledge gained by reading it.

Situational and fact-related

In every article you will find several references to either real cases of how something applied or affected, or to hypothetical situations of how it would apply and how it would result. This makes it way more easier to learn since it combines your reading capacities with the activation of your visual imagination, creating a more powerful memory, which is at the same time more interesting. It's in that sense pretty similar to reading a novel, right?

Interesting or fun

Sometimes it is said that learning is boring, or hard. We do not think so, and that is why we try to offer scientific content that is explained in a way that is interesting and fun and therefore makes you want more. Science is what it is, science. Whether it is interesting or fun depends solely on how you convey it and we do our best to make it worth your time.

Who are your authors and reviewers?

Our authors are psychologists with an educational background comprised of an university degree in psychology or a highly connected area such as neuroscience or pedagogy. You can check in every article that we write who is our author and our reviewer of the article, and if you click on their names it will take you to their pages, where you can find more information about them.

Should I give feedback?

Yes, definitely. Since we are looking to improve constantly, we are always open to constructive feedback. Of course, it could happen that despite our process we committed some kind of mistake. If this were to be the case, it is important that you let us know, as our priority is giving reliable and accurate content to our readers. In any case, do not hesitate to reach us through our Contact page.
