Psychology: Science and Profession (PCP) published by the Psychology Federal Council throughout the last 30 years has been tracking the progress in the field both in terms of science and profession. The goal of this study is to report several relevant aspects starting from 2005 when PCP established itself as a scientific journal while it became available in an electronic version joining the open access movement. A brief analysis of the references and indicators is done at the same time. This analysis has taken place based on the editorial contents of the volumes published since 2005. Based on the PePSIC and SciELO bibliometric modules’ references given and received by the PCP have been documented on top of the journal references. The most active journal network in terms of references to the PCP is published in the PePSIC, illustrating that electronic journals are subjected to higher visibility in the scientific community. At the 30th anniversary the journal´s commitment with Psychology is oriented to the relief of human suffering but also dedicated to the advancement of the psychological science. The knowledge captured in scientific journals and the respective impact that such contents represent to the universal knowledge should be approached, discussed and understood; therefore research activities of this nature should be fostered.
