We are open to ideas for new journals. The monetary price of setting up a journal is about 0, but it needs a review team and it needs a market.

Suggestions so far:

Evolutionary anthropology/psychology
Competitors? Is it necessary?

Discuss new journal proposals in this thread.
As it stands, ODP and OBG would receive the vast majority of contributions. Other journals should perhaps be combined (Psychological Miscellany?). Even so, it would be hard to find enough contributors.
I have created a journal for interdisciplinary material such as discussions of policy based on psychological findings.
