Welcome to the Graduate Psychology subject guide. If you are starting research on topics in counseling psychology or are deep into your doctoral dissertation, I hope you'll find assistance here.
Remember you can always set up an appointment with me to help you plan a research strategy, find a great resource, or just talk through your topic. Let us me know if you find anything out there that is especially helpful!
Each journal has a slightly different procedure -- e.g., they might not have a second editor look at the article before rejection at the first step -- but this should give you a good idea of what might happen.
