Click Here to Sign-Up.

Positive Psychology is only as good as the readers, writers, editors, link submitters and volunteers who all contribute to making it what it is-- a community.

Diary Submissions:

Sometimes called "blogs", diaries come in two flavors: a Personal Diary and a Public Diary.  What's the difference?  An entry which is a Public Diary entry appears to the public, usually from the home page and from the "inside" pages categorized by Tags. A Personal Diary entry only shows up on your personal "authors page" which you are free to share with whomever you wish. All of the criteria for Article Submissions (below) would be good to apply to Public Diaries. You can sign up
for submitting your Personal or Public Diaries below....

Article Submissions:

We love to see well written, creative, penetrating, insightful, humorous, information, commentary, investigation, and reporting on Positive Psychology. We welcome your submission of articles, poetry, humor, artwork, editorial cartoons.

We accept original and previously published work you've done. We ask that you let us know if you are giving us an exclusive for 24, 48 or 72 hours, so we can submit it to other sites. Publishing it on your site or blog is fine and we don't count that as affecting exclusivity. We do insist that you never publish anything which you don't have written permission to publish. By publishing, you agree that you have secured any permissions necessary for publication and will take responsibility for any costs incurred if is sued because you copied copyrighted material without permission.

We are selective at Positive Psychology and do not publish all the articles that are submitted. You should read a number of the articles published on Positive Psychology and familiarize yourself with our website so you get a feel for what we publish.

Once you sign on as a member and submit your article, it will be placed in a queue and evaluated by an editor, then, either published or rejected. You will receive an automated letter either way. Sometimes you will receive a rejection with comments on how to make the article more likely to be published, with further editing.

We have several categories for articles and many inside page categories. We may decide to publish your article to our front page, or it may be published on one or several inside tag pages. That's why it is important to include a number of tags. Articles scroll more slowly off thetag pages.

If you consistently submit articles of high quality and consistency, we may elevate you from a member submitter to a trusted author submitter. We're looking for just about perfect records, without problematic submissions that have to be rejected. We usually don't want ads that attack other people, unless they are politicians or corrupt officials. We Love criticism of the mainstream media and media figures.

If your submission is accepted, we will publish it on our webpages and it may be sent in our newsletter. We will respect whatever byline you choose to write under, short of misrepresenting yourself as another person. We allow you to retain reprint rights, but we retain the right to publish your articles in collections in books or other websites.

Links Submissions

If you find great news article, or op-ed column or blog entry (with a permalink) we'd really appreciate it if you add a link on Positive Psychology to that article. We make it easy. You cut and paste the URL address in one field, the title in another, and description in a third field. You can add your comments to the comment field and can even come up with a title in the title field. Finally, you categorize the article link with up to five tags (More is better.) It usually takes under a minute to do a link. We do
NOT send notification of acceptance of links. You'll see them on the site if we use them. Send in enough approved links, with minimal rejected links and you may
become eligible to be invited to become an editor.
