The Ohio Psychologist is a peer-reviewed publication with primarily practice-orientated articles. The Editor of The Ohio Psychologist is a co-chair of the CTC. The OPA Review is published two times annually and is designed to bring members up-to-date information about statewide and national issues that affect psychologists and consumers. OPA Members may view past issues of all publications in the News section of this website.

Articles submitted for publication in The Ohio Psychologist are carefully reviewed by three peer reviewers, and reviewer feedback is provided to each author and changes are made by the author(s) to manuscripts before they are officially accepted for publication.
