GOMES, William B.  and  GAUER, Gustavo. Considerations on the recent editorial history of the periodical. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.spe, pp.156-169. ISSN 1414-9893.

The merits of Psicologia: Ciência e Profissão (PCP) have been recognized by Campos and Bernardes (2005) in their historical record of the journal´s first 25 years. For the authors, the journal has provided a unique space for the dissemination of Brazilian psychological studies, and contributed significantly to the development of Psychology in Brazil. The present study extends the analysis to a more recent period and attempts a brief comparison with two similar journals from other regions: American Psychologist and European Psychologist. The article concludes that in recent periods, PCP gets growingly close to its foreign counterparts in terms of an agenda and potential functions as a platform for the international airing of scientific and professional advances obtained by Brazilian psychologists.
