Forensic Psychology Articles

Selected from Journal of Personality Assessment

Journal of Personality Assessment publishes cutting-edge research related to the psychological assessment of psychopathology, maladaptive personality, and normative personality processes. Such assessment is commonplace and important in forensic psychology contexts and JPA therefore invites submissions of manuscripts reporting on research on forensic assessment. Such research can include (but is not limited to) the use of personality assessment instruments in forensic evaluations, the evaluation of risk assessment measures, and validation of specific forensic assessment instruments.

To allow you to discover the importance of this journal to your research, we are offering free online access** to selected articles from a Special Section on Personality Assessment and the Law.
