PTAD – first papers out now!
Psychological Test Adaptation and Development (PTAD)
PTAD is the first open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing papers on adaptations of tests to specific (e.g., cultural) needs, test translations, or the development of existing measures. It is the official open access organ of the European Association for Psychological Assessment (EAPA). 
We are delighted to announce that the first articles have now been released online – and more will follow in the coming weeks. One describes an adaptation of the German-language Fragebogen zu Ressourcen im Kindes- und Jugendalter (FRKJ) [Questionnaire to Assess Resources for Children and Adolescents (QARCA)] into Chinese, the first Chinese measure that simultaneously assesses personal and environmental resources for youngsters. Click here. 
The other two articles are by Matthias Ziegler, PTAD’s editor-in-chief, who presents an overview about the beginnings, the structure, and the goals of this journal.

A Special Issue of European Psychologist - Call for papers
“Psychology, Global Threats, Social Challenge, and the COVID-19 Pandemic: European Perspectives”
Guest Editors: Bernd Roehrle and Nicola Gale
"Research specifically related to COVID-19 is of course at a very early stage. The ability of many scientists to work at pace in pushing the frontiers of knowledge despite the enforced challenges to working processes of measures to contain the spread of coronavirus has been one of the impressive hallmarks of this period. In asking for review papers, we anticipate that in the field of psychology it will be possible to analyze and synthesize the results of work that is being developed with existing work in the field in order to produce important new insights to create opportunities to have an impact on policy and practice." Read the full call for papers here. 
The deadline for submission of full papers is September 30, 2020.
All manuscripts will undergo regular peer-review, with a target publication date in December 2020/January 2021.
