Start Submission Become a Reviewer

At Our Core


Collabra: Psychology has Senior Editors who work together to set the editorial and review policy, and other policies at the journal, alongside the publisher. They, and the board of handling Editors, manage papers through the peer review process. There are editors for each of our sections, but Collabra: Psychology is developing, so please check back as this list expands.
