Collabra: Psychology, the official journal of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science, is a mission-driven Open Access (OA) journal from the University of California Press that shares not only the research it publishes, but also the value created by the psychology community during the peer-review process. Collabra: Psychology has 7 sections representing the broad field of psychology, and a highlighted focus area of “Methodology and Research Practice.”

To publish original works in the areas of Developmental Psychology, Psychological Assesment, Health Psychology and Psychological Processes/Experimental Psychology in English.


The journal will undertake problems of human creativity – its recognition, correlates, determinants, possibilities for its support and development – analyzed from the point of view of education, psychology, sociology, aesthetics, etc. Moreover, the journal will discuss issues of creative potential as well as actual creative achievements (everyday and eminent creativity). It will also consider methodological and statistical issues regarding quantitative and qualitative creativity studies in various countries. The journal is a platform for positive confrontation of the various ways of perceiving and investigating creativity; interparadigmatic and interdiscursive dialogue of the representatives of distinct theoretical and methodological options. The journal is published in an electronic form, in English, half-annually. We publish original theoretical papers, studies, overviews, and comments about current issues in human creativity from the perspective of various scholarly disciplines.

EvoS Journal: The Journal of the Evolutionary Studies Consortium is a journal designed to promote the education of evolutionary theory in colleges and universities. An evolutionary education provides a framework for enhancing the research and theory in all disciplines, and as such, EvoS Journal welcomes work from all academic disciplines as well as interdisciplinary scholarship that incorporates evolutionary theory across areas of study. As an outlet for academic articles, EvoS Journal has two particular aims. The first is to publish peer-reviewed articles related to evolutionary theory in higher education. The second is to publish undergraduate peer-reviewed articles that have arisen from courses offered through Evolutionary Studies Programs. 

Educational Psychology Research and Practice is an open access periodical published twice a year by the School of Psychology, University of East London. It offers a forum for informed debate and discussion of Educational Psychology research and training as well as a wider focus on issues of social justice and civic engagement in applied psychological practice. EPRaP is open to publishing research findings, literature reviews, commentaries, methodology papers, reflection on practice and book/resource reviews. It is part of a research and learning culture that recognises the importance of knowledge exchange and impact for partners in the community.

What is conditional pass?

Below is an excerpt from our Madalas na Tanong (Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ). Definitely it is natural to think and consider yourself you might be conditional with your status  in the recently concluded BLEPP. Perhaps as a way of rationalization or denial, not being able to accept that you failed after all the hardship, effort, financial expenses, emotional investment made to hurdle the licensure exam.

Often we receive query about conditional pass. Here is our way of answering what is conditional pass. If you have other idea or explanation please feel free to post it in the comment section or email us at 

6) What is conditional pass?
In Section 18 of RA 11029 "An examine who obtains a weighted general average of seventy-five percent (75%) or higher but obtains a rating below sixty percent (60%) in any given subject may retake such subjects within the next two (2) years, and upon obtaining a rating of at least seventy-five percent (75%) in each such subject, shall then be deemed to have passed the licensure examination." 

A case scenario would be an examinee who scored high on all three subjects but got 58% or 59% in one subject often Psychological Assessment, even if the examinee is high on the three subjects (say 85-90%  in all 3 subjects) thus earning a passing mark but failed or low in one of the subjects then the examinee's case  will be conditional. So s/he can retake again  (and should pass) only the subject s/he failed.

Examples of Conditional

A) Example No. 1

59 - Psych Assessment - Conditional and can retake only this subject
85 - TOP
86 - Industrial Psych
86 - Abnormal Psych
75% GWA

B) Example No. 2
76 - Psych Assessment
59 - Abnormal Psych - Conditional and can retake only this subject
82 - Industrial Psych
83 - TOP
75.20% GWA

The word "Conditional" would appear at the bottom/remarks of the GWA that you get from the exam. 

This score may not have 75% passing rate in 2 subjects (72 and 73) but definitely above 60% and was able to get 75.60% since  the scores in Abnormal Psych and Industrial Psych are both high, pulling those scores below 75%.

Another way to check/verify also if you get a conditional status is  by way of checking your school performance - there's a column for conditional (COND). If your school does not have the number or zero (0) appears on the column then your score is not conditional. So even if you pass 2 or 3 subjects but your General Average is below 75% and got the remarked Failed - they you have to retake the licensure exam.
