About the Journal

Aims & Scope

Awry: Journal of Critical Psychology (AJCP) is an open-access, peer reviewed academic journal that provides an interdisciplinary forum for critical scholars dedicated to interrogating the economic, social, political, and environmental dimensions of psychological research and practice.

We welcome articles and reviews from scholars and activists who draw on a wide range of theoretical orientations and methodological approaches. We also encourage proposals for special issues and experimental formats that push against the boundaries of traditional scholarship and practice.

Open-Access Policy

Awry is a fully open access publication. It is freely accessible online and full-text content is immediately available upon publication. Awry does not charge authors submission fees or article processing fees. We are dedicated to the idea of a free and open exchange of scholarship from a range of disciplines, perspectives, and methodologies.
