  • This article considers the publication practices of 3 leading journals in Educational Psychology, for the 6-year period 2008-2013, to determine their representation of countries throughout the world among the editors, editorial board members, authors, and the participants in the samples (the samples of participants based on a random subset of the articles published). The journals considered are: 1) Journal of Educational Psychology (JEP); 2) Contemporary Educational Psychology (CEP); and 3) The British Journal of Educational Psychology (BJEP). The journals published in the United States (JEP and CEP) have a 50 - 60 percent focus on individuals and participants in the United States. For BJEP, the United Kingdom accounts for about a third of authors and participants. Significantly more non-English speaking European countries are represented in the BJEP than in the two American journals. In all three countries, Asia, Africa, and Central and South America are significantly under-represented in the authors and participants of studies.
