Call for Nominations

Founding Editor of Technology, Mind, and Behavior

Deadline for nominations:  May 15, 2019

The American Psychological Association (APA) is seeking a founding editor for its new interdisciplinary journal Technology, Mind, and Behavior. The term of the editorship is 2020–2025, with a start-up period in the fall of 2019.


Technology, Mind, and Behavior is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal that will publish original work on human-technology interaction, with a focus on human behavior at the individual or group level.

The journal will showcase basic and applied empirical research on the psychology and dynamics of the interactions between humans and technology. Meta-analyses and literature reviews that summarize the current state of science on a topic will also be accepted.

The scope of the journal will include:

  • BASIC RESEARCH: How humans understand and use technology, impacts of technology on human experience and behavior, human-technology interactions as mutually adaptive systems, role of technology in advancing other areas of scientific research, and related topics
  • APPLICATIONS: Development, use, and impact of technologies in domains such as aging, education, mental and physical health, recreation, and the workplace
  • BROADER IMPLICATIONS: Evidence-based analyses of ethical, legal, social, and policy questions concerning the opportunities and challenges arising from human-technology interactions

Research featured in Technology, Mind, and Behavior may address the full range of contemporary and emerging technologies.

These include but are not limited to

  • artificial intelligence
  • robotics
  • mobile devices
  • social media
  • virtual/augmented reality
  • gaming
  • geographic information systems
  • autonomous vehicles
  • nanotechnology
  • biomedical technologies (e.g., brain-machine interfaces, genetic engineering)

As a digital-only journal, Technology, Mind, and Behavior will implement open access and open science principles and will explore innovative forms of reporting research and interacting with readers.

The goal is to ensure a broad interdisciplinary and international reach and to allow for published research to have maximum impact within academic, business, non-profit, and policy communities.


Candidates should be available to start receiving manuscripts in late 2019 to prepare for issues published in 2020.

APA encourages participation by members of underrepresented groups in the publication process and welcomes nominees from those groups.

Both members and non-members of APA are eligible to be nominated. However, if selected as editor, a non-member would be expected to become an APA member.

Submit candidate nominations through APA’s Editor Search website.

The nomination should include the candidate’s name and email address and a brief (250 word) statement describing the nominee’s qualifications to serve as editor. Self-nominations are encouraged.

Nominations may also be submitted by email to Rose Sokol-Chang, PhD (Publisher, APA Journals).

The deadline for accepting nominations is May 15, 2019, when reviews will begin.

The editor search is led by Howard S. Kurtzman, PhD, and Amber L. Story, PhD, both of APA’s Science Directorate.

The APA Publications and Communications Board will make the final selection of the editor.
