ABSTRACT
There are only few journals in psychology published in Lithuania that are available for publications. There are also few other journals from other disciplines published in Lithuania that are accepting psychology studies for publications. Even though there are only few journals available for publications, these journals are very popular among scholars; psychology scholars are actively publishing their own work in these journals. Having publications in these journals are becoming more and more important for their scientific career. Only some scholars publish also in European or international journals. All the journals offer the possibility to publish in English, but not many scholars prefer to write studies in English. Thus, Lithuanian language is the main language for scientific publications in psychology in Lithuania. The language, time and rejection issues play a role in choosing Lithuanian journals of psychology over international journals.
