|Abstract:||The aim of the present paper was to review the psychological publication situation in Cyprus. Psychology is a very young field of study in Cyprus, whereas research and publishing are more recent additions. It seems that only within the past decade with the advent of academic institutions hiring academic psychologists has psychological research and publishing become a priority. In order to explore questions of interest relevant to publication issues, a questionnaire was developed by the author and was distributed to psychologists in all accredited tertiary educational institutions in Cyprus. Although the publication world of Cyprus is limited in number, based on the responses provided, it appears that Cypriot academic psychologists are active in the publication world and do not currently face many problems. At this time Cyprus does not have its own psychological journal and it does not appear that it is in the process of creating such a journal. Therefore the idea of a European publication platform may be more of a reality and may even address some of the current needs and futuredifficulties that Cypriot psychologists may face in their attempts at publishing their work. Key words: psychology; scientific communication; information dissemination; online publishing;journals; trends; Cyprus|
