American Psychology "Is" Becoming More International
Webster, Gregory D.; Nichols, Austin Lee; Schember, Tatiana Orozco
American Psychologist, v64 n6 p566-568 Sep 2009
Comments on an article by J. J. Arnett regarding the assertion that American psychology focuses too narrowly on Americans while neglecting the other 95% of the world's population. The authors argue that while Arnett's assessment was poignant, and his call for a more inclusive, international, and cross-cultural representation in American psychology was timely and admirable; they present data that show substantial progress has been made over the last 30 years, and we conclude that major APA journals are already becoming representative of the world's research psychologists in some respects. (Contains 4 figures.)
