Scientific Review Papers

The AP-LS Scientific Review Paper committee works to approve official Scientific Review Papers that are meant to objectively summarize the research literature in areas where there is a high degree of scientific clarity and consensus.

In its history, the Executive Committee has only approved three official Scientific Review Papers of the American Psychology-Law Society. Links to view each paper online and to download it as a pdf are included here below.
