Abstract: This paper presents a brief summary of the Survey on European Psychology Publication Issues and the Berlin workshop. Six issues of main concern are discussed: (1) Language, (2) review process, (3) manuscript handling, (4) impact (visibility), (5) permission barriers (accessibility) and (6) price barriers (cost). These issues are the concerns of non-native English speaking Europeans as they experienced in their home countries. As a solution, a possible conceptualization of a European open access publication platform for psychology is presented. Giving more visibility to scientific work, disseminating information easy and more broadly and with new features not found in existing journals an open access platform may be the right direction. Concrete plans for the future on organizational, technical and funding issues are addressed. Key words: psychology; scientific communication; information dissemination; journals; openaccess; online publishing; language; funding
