American Psychologist® , established in 1946, is the flagship peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the American Psychological Association. As such, American Psychologist publishes current and timely high-impact papers of broad interest. These papers include empirical reports, meta-analyses, and other types of scholarly reviews. Topics cover psychological science, practice, education, and policy. Contributions often address issues of national and international significance, both with regard to the profession of psychology and its relationship to society at large. Published articles are written in a style that is accessible to all psychologists and the public.
AP considers manuscripts on all aspects of psychology, including manuscripts on national and international policy issues. Topics should be current, timely, and of interest to the broad APA membership. Manuscripts should be written in a style that is accessible and of interest to all psychologists, regardless of area of specialization.
Comment submissions that meet journal standards for further consideration will be peer-reviewed. Authors may be asked to revise the comment. If a comment is deemed acceptable for publication, authors of the original submission are typically given the opportunity to reply to the comment. Comments are published in the earliest possible issue of the journal.
Proposals for special sections or special issues should describe their scope, provide a rationale (including why such a section or issue is timely and what contribution it would make to the literature), and list and describe the proposed papers, with potential authors for each. Potential authors should not be recruited until a proposal is accepted.

Do you remember the things you purchased to prepare for your first stay in the community? Have you tried to remember what you did as a vacation to help you learn more about the ways of the neighborhood? The first step in taking control of your environment is to begin documenting that history. Taking note of the different types of houses in your new neighborhood can help you figure out what makes those houses special. If you never document it, then you will never know if you ever want to make these houses a part of your new home. Think about how your life has changed. You are now in a new space and must fit in. Where do you want your life to be in 10 years? Do you want a new house? Do you want more kids? New friends? A new car? Those are big changes that are sure to change your life completely. You can do it! People are more likely to travel to places that they feel safe. Find out if the safe in your community is a good impression. If it is not a good impression, find out why. Would you feel comfortable living in the community? There is a certain level of comfort that you need to expect in your safe. Are you sure that you are comfortable with the safety of the city? This is a great question to ask a city administrator or police department. Look up the crime rates in your new town. Ask a friend or a coworker if they feel safe. If you are unsure or don't want to commit to anything, talk to the building manager. If you are a potential renter, then ask the manager of the building if he or she would be a good reference for you. If the manager refers you to a friend of his or her own, then this person might be a good source to learn about the safety of the community. You can also find information online. There are resources for both public and private information online. A lot of people, however, don't know where to find the information they need. If you are looking for something specific, try the local library. Often the internet is a great source, but you need to know that you can find that information at the library, too. It is not just the library that you need to look into. Meet with the police department and the fire department. Go to a few community meetings. Look for a faith-based community. These places are often protected from the majority of the city's issues. Most cities have a website that you can use to look up information that is tailored to the community. Go to this website or call the city for help in finding the information you need. Do not wait for the perfect time.98329e995e 2b1af7f3a8
