Scientific Reports
 has expanded its scope to include psychology. We live in a world that is increasingly technology-oriented and driven by data. But to address the challenges of modern times, we must understand a phenomenon that is often not easily captured by data, nor necessarily affected by technology—and that is human behaviour.

Psychologists will find a warm welcome for their work at Scientific Reports and can take advantage of our recent commitment to consideration of Registered Reports. We are also now receiving submissions to several Guest Edited Collections in psychology. Led by our Editorial Board Members, these Collections highlight your research, enhancing its visibility in your field and in the broader research community. The median turnaround time from submission to acceptance for papers submitted to our Guest Edited Collections is 102 days. You can expect to receive an editorial decision within 48 days, and over 55% of papers sent to peer review are published. The journal has an Impact Factor of 4.996, a CiteScore of 6.9 and a Scimago quartile ranking of Q1.
