Journal Editor of Stigma and Health

The Publications and Communications (P&C) Board of the American Psychological Association has opened nominations for the Editorship of Stigma and Health for the years 2021 - 2025. Patrick Corrigan, PsyD, is the incumbent editor.


The lives of people with disease and disability are worsened by stigma, thus leading to public prejudice, loss of self-worth, and negative implications for health and well-being. Stigma and Health, published by the American Psychological Association, serves as a venue for articles examining research representing stigma in its various guises as it impacts people living with mental and physical illness.


Stigma and Health publishes peer-reviewed, original research articles that may include tests of hypotheses about the and impact of stigma, examination of strategies to decrease stigma's effects, and survey research capturing stigma in populations. Stigma and Health especially welcomes research studies on methods meant to erase the stigma of mental and physical illnesses. Theoretical reviews and pioneering reports on innovations are also welcome.


The journal publishes regular articles as well as brief reports.


Candidates should be available to start receiving manuscripts in early 2020 to prepare for issues published in 2021. Please note that the P&C Board encourages participation by members of underrepresented groups in the publication process and would particularly welcome such nominees. Self-nominations are also encouraged.


Cheryl Travis, PhD, will chair the search.


Nominate candidates through APA's Editor Search website at Prepared statements of one page or less in support of a nominee can also be submitted by e-mail to Stephanie Pollock (Associate Publisher, APA Journals)


The deadline for accepting nominations is Friday, January 18, 2019, after which phase one vetting will begin.
