The California School Psychologist is a refereed journal published annually by the California Association of School Psychologists (CASP). The California School Psychologist is devoted to contemporary issues in school psychology. The goal of the journal is to gather high quality articles concerning research, assessment, consultation, collaboration, training, service delivery, and other relevant topics that have implications for the profession of school psychology. It is also the intent of the journal to highlight the diversity of the profession and of the students, parents, and communities served by school psychologists in California.
Selection of articles to be published is determined on the basis of blind peer review. Reviewers examine the importance of the topics addressed, accuracy and validity of the contents, contribution to the profession, implications for the practice of school psychology in California, originality, and quality of writing. Professionals across the country are encouraged to submit manuscripts.
