“Psychology research has expanded over the past few decades to include studies that aim to understand how we function in different environments, such as at the workplace, with family, with strangers, and even on the internet. While psychological studies were traditionally focused on the treatments of clinical disorders, in the past two decades, many researchers now focus on how psychology interacts with other fields. Discover Psychology is an international, inclusive journal that covers all aspects of psychology.”
