The Situation of Psychology Publications in Lithuania

Vilmante PAKALNISKIENE

Abstract


There are only few journals in psychology published in Lithuania that are available for
publications. There are also few other journals from other disciplines published in Lithuania that are
accepting psychology studies for publications. Even though there are only few journals available for
publications, these journals are very popular among scholars; psychology scholars are actively
publishing their own work in these journals. Having publications in these journals are becoming more
and more important for their scientific career. Only some scholars publish also in European or
international journals. All the journals offer the possibility to publish in English, but not many scholars
prefer to write studies in English. Thus, Lithuanian language is the main language for scientific
publications in psychology in Lithuania. The language, time and rejection issues play a role in choosing
Lithuanian journals of psychology over international journals.
