Journal of Numerical Cognition
JNC aims to facilitate communication not only amongst psychologists but also between psychologists and cognate disciplines. It also encourages dialogue between theory development and practice with respect to understanding numerical cognition. The objective of the journal is to provide readers with access to high-quality professional information, thus stimulating the scientific community in Europe, North America and worldwide. Indeed JNC welcomes contributions from researchers and practitioners irrespective of their geographical location.
The main objectives of the Journal of Numerical Cognition are to provide a scholarly forum for the focused discussion of research into numerical cognition and in so doing, increase the visibility of this topic domain in psychology and beyond.
As a result, the journal has been developed so to be accessible to both young researchers and established professionals without discipline boundaries. By being open access, it is also designed so that contributions are available not just to the academic community but to the larger audience of individuals who teach about number and work with numerical information.
Europe's Journal of Psychology (EJOP)
Europe’s Journal of Psychology is meant to facilitate communication between psychologists, and to give them access to high-quality professional information, thus fostering the scientific psychological community in Europe and worldwide. Although primarily targeted at the European public, EJOP gladly hosts contributions from psychologists irrespective of their geographical location.
EJOP’s main objectives are to expand, on the one hand, the publication space offered to psychologists and, on the other hand, to increase the number of psychology journals that take a more generalist and eclectic approach to psychology issues given the current tendency to produce rather highly specialized works.
Therefore, the journal was conceived in such a manner as to be accessible for both young researchers and established professionals and also to a very large area of scientific psychological 'genres' and schools. Its structure gives room to a diverse, eclectic and multidisciplinary range of psychology studies and research.

The European Journal of Counselling Psychology (EJCoP)
The European Journal of Counselling Psychology set its mission to strengthen the scientist practitioner model and further innovation in line with the doctoral-level competencies for counselling psychologists.
The European Journal of Counselling Psychology (EJCoP) was developed after the founding of The European Association of Counselling Psychology (EACP). The EACP observed that counselling psychology needed to develop across the European national borders because of trade integration in the region and mobility of both counselling psychologists and their potential clients. The EACP realised that an integral part of progression is to develop the knowledge-base and evidence-based practice of counselling psychology across Europe, and it is upon these foundations that the European Journal of Counselling Psychology (EJCoP) was developed.
Its vision: A journal that links the knowledge of counselling psychology across national borders and is positioned at the forefront of innovative evidence-based practice.
