Form and preparation of manuscripts

All articles published in the journal Clinical and Health should be empirical contributions to knowledge of the subject, and the final decision about publication will be made based on this criterion (contribution to knowledge of the field), as well as the article’s relevance to clinical and health psychology practice. We therefore encourage potential contributors to Clinical and Health to prepare their articles with the following criteria in mind: (a) in what way does the article contribute to knowledge of the question being researched? and (b) what is its relevance for clinical and health psychology practice? Potential authors should also be aware that although Clinical and Health makes use of an anonymous revision process, the director of the journal may make a final decision to reject a manuscript, without sending it for revision, in cases where the content of the paper does not fit the field of the journal, or it has not been prepared in accordance with the rules given to potential contributors.

All the information related to the instructions to authors is available through the journal's webpage http://journals.copmadrid.org/clysa/normasCLYSA.pdf.
