Research in Psychotherapy: Psychopathology, Process and Outcome

Research in Psychotherapy: Psychopathology, Process and Outcome (RIPPPO) is an online, open-access, peer reviewed journal published by the Italian Area Group of the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR Italy Area Group). Its aim is to promoting a fruitful communication between the Italian and International communities, enriching clinicians and researchers mutual collaboration. It welcomes high quality articles from any part of the world, concerning a variety of topics (e.g., psychotherapy process and outcome, diagnosis and assessment, psychopathology etc.), with different formats (e.g., reviews, empirical studies, methodological works, clinical studies) and from different epistemological, theoretical and methodological perspectives of the contemporary research in psychotherapy.

Particular attention will be paid to works sensitive to the close interconnection between psychotherapy process and psychopathology, as well as theory and clinical practice; the focus on intensive case analysis; the study of the psychotherapies delivered within the different institutional settings and with attention to the interdisciplinary dialogue.

RIPPPO publishes two issues every year and provides immediate open access to its contents, on the basis of the principle that making research results freely available to researchers and practitioners supports a better exchange of knowledge.

RIPPPO adopts a two-phase peer review procedure, to which only papers written in English are allowed and considered. Firstly, the Manuscript is read by the Editors for verifying its consistency with the aims, and the formal and content standards of the journal. Then, if the paper is suitable for publication, Editor submits it to blind peer reviewing phase. The process of reviewing is intended as an opportunity to promote scientific exchange designed to guarantee a high scientific standard for the journal, as well as to provide Authors with the chance to improve the quality of their manuscripts. This journal utilizes the PORTICO system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries, and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.

RIPPPO has been included for indexing in SciVerse (Scopus) and PsycInfo.
