JOURNAL POLICY

Transformation of the world around takes place for natural reasons and as a result of vigorous activity of the person. Natural evolution of the Earth biosphere occurs systematically and generally it is the result of space-time interaction of matter. At the same time, the human factor acts as an element of artificial acceleration of environment changing processes. Sometimes such circumstances have progressive nature if they promote positive transformation of human habitat. But it is known that negative influence of human activity on the world around is also quite widespread. What predetermines qualitative and quantitative balance of progressive and regressive tendencies in the development of human society and its interaction with a global ecosystem? It is obvious that it depends on our collective activity consisting of all acts of the society members. And on our mental values, motives and aims of behavioral acts, life and consumer preferences and stereotypes. Finally, natures of thoughts, moral and cultural character of the person predetermine orientation of creative impulses, constructive or destructive efforts. The social outlook and psychological features of society members are the key to the solution of specificity, consequences and prospects of existence of human community. In total these proceedings are some kind of a mystery of human mission on expanses of the Universe. And they form the energy of transformations based on opposition and interaction of social and biological factors, collective and subjective origins in private life of individuals and interpersonal communications. The psychological element is one of the major circumstances determining the form, substance and dynamics of evolution of human society and also its place in the world because a sentient being is clearly manifested in the world around not by its corporal expression, but by thoughts, feelings, creativity and acts.

Mission of the journal «GISAP: Psychological Sciences» is to be one of alternative and open ways of publication of author's studies in psychology, as well as sources of dissemination of the advanced knowledge about peculiarities of perception, emotionality, thinking and human behavioral activity.   

The journal is focused on publication of original creative studies of scientists from around the world based on innovative and progressive approaches of authors to problems under study. In this context «GISAP: Psychological Sciences» seeks for the greatest possible promotion of the progress of psychological and the related public knowledge.

Materials with expert confirmation of high scientific quality and creative originality are published in the journal. This circumstance predetermines our intention to publish "live" materials with comprehensive author's ideas and specifics of self-expression. We publish reports capable to enrich the reader's scientific outlook with new approaches, concepts, thoughts and views on various matters of psychological sciences.

The journal is absolutely democratic and open for social interaction. During the selection of materials for publication we don't use formal qualification-based requirements or other restrictive factors. Works of a talented student and a prominent scientist can be both published in the journal. The main selection criteria: the author's originality, novelty, literacy and scientific reasonability (together it all characterizes the "scientific value" of the report).

Original studies of representatives of various countries and cultures can be published in the magazine. At the same time to ensure availability of reports for representatives of the international scientific community (where English is a traditional mechanism of international communication) English is set as the dominating language of presentation of reports.

Main materials can be published in the journal in other widespread (acknowledged as widespread) languages of international communication and also in other languages providing their understanding for a wide range of persons. In such cases materials must be accompanied by extended summaries (abstracts) in English.

The International Academy of Science and Higher Education and the open international expert community of the GISAP project sincerely hope that the journal «GISAP: Psychological Sciences» (taking into account the declared principles of its publication) will promote the development of related branches of science, mutual enrichment of national scientific schools of various countries with knowledge and experience, international ties and scientific cooperation in psychology
