The North American Journal of Psychology (NAJP) was founded in 1999. For the first two years, we published two issues only. Beginning in 2001, we published three issues per year. Beginning in 2020, we published four issues per year. We have published over 500 articles as of the spring of 2014. From 1999 to 2013 NAJP appeared in print form. Based on favorable survey results from NAJP’s authors, reviewers, and editorial advisors, and due to the rising costs of printing and binding, NAJP went “paperless” beginning with the first issue of 2014 (Volume 16, Number 1).
The journal’s founder and editor is Dr. Lynn E. McCutcheon, who is the author or co-author of half a dozen books and approximately 145 articles. His articles have appeared in such diverse outlets as Skeptical Inquirer, The Journal of Social Psychology, Personality and Individual Differences, Journal of Personality Assessment, Journal of Comparative and Physiological Psychology, Interpersona, Current Research in Social Psychology, Journal of Social Behavior and Personality, Current Psychology, Journal of Behavioral Addictions, Psychological Reports, Sexuality and Culture, International Journal of Dream Research, Psychology of Popular Media, Mind and Society, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, and The British Journal of Psychology, among others.
