Journal History

Gadjah Mada Journal of Profesional Psychology (GamaJPP) was launched in 2015 as an outlet for the publication of a Psychology Master’s thesis at Universitas Gadjah Mada taking into account that this program produces a large number of final assignments each year. From the start, GamaJPP was published three times a year with the aim of disseminating empirical research reports that involve clinical or therapeutic interventions. However since 2018 GamaJPP has only been published in two editions a year.

There are some changes within the aim and scope of Gadjah Mada Journal of Professional Psychology (GamaJPP) recently. In the past few years, we used to accept articles adopting experimental and intervention-based research designs. Since July 2022, GamaJPP expanded its scope to accommodate the needs of evidence-based scholarly articles with implications for the development of research and practices of professional psychology in Indonesian context. As such, GamaJPP welcomes manuscripts in the area of Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Organizational Change & Development, adopting empirical, systematic literature review, or experimental research designs that justify their contribution to research and practice of professional psychology and meet the high publication standard.
