Papers from the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology Conferences

Publication Date



Analyses of the affiliations of authors of articles published in targeted samples of North American and international journals revealed trends toward increasing international publication by psychologists from countries outside the U.S., i.e., from countries in the rest of the world (ROW). Relatively few of these ROW publications came from psychologists from developing countries. Because developing countries are most numerous and represent the majority of the people in the world, their contribution to the world of psychology is important. Following a summary presentation of data for each journal for psychologists from East Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and South Asia (primarily India), the factors differentially deterring or promoting international publication within each region are discussed.1 Consideration of the extent to which research contributions are differentially influenced by the national economy, national language, and the state of discipline development raise questions and provide insights into the international dissemination of majority-world research.
