ADVERTISING GUIDELINES View complete APA advertising guidelines at Equal Employment Opportunity The following are guidelines for use in composing and responding to advertisements placed in the Classified Advertisement section of gradPSYCH. By vote of the Council, 1974, listings will be accepted from academic institutions under Censure by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). However, these listings are identified in this publication by the placement of the symbol (•) preceding line classified position openings (and by an editor’s note located in these guidelines for classified/ display ads) in order to advise applicants that the employing institution, or its administration, which includes the administrative officers and the governing board of the institution, has been censured by the AAUP, and that further information may be obtained from the relevant AAUP Bulletin. Advertisements for positions requiring military service must include the following disclaimer: Eligibility for military service requires certain physical abilities and attributes including age, height, weight, and physical ability requirements. APA policy on the use of the title “psychologist” is contained in the General Guidelines for Providers of Psychological Services, which define the term “Professional Psychologist” as follows: “Psychologists have a doctoral degree in psychology from an organized, sequential program in a regionally accredited university or professional school.” APA is not responsible for the specific title or wording of any particular position opening, but it is general pattern to refer to master’s-level positions as counselors, specialists, clinicians, and so forth (rather than as “psychologists”). In addition, it is general practice to refer to APA-accredited programs as “APA-accredited” rather than “APA approved.” The position as described must be in conformity with the statute regulating the use of the title psychologist and the practice of psychology in the state in which the job is available. Employers are required to include any limits or restrictions on position opening advertisements, including any restrictions on the basis of geographical, age, and/or religious factors. The date of first appearance is noted at the end of each position opening listing. Advertisements should be written to convey the following information: • Job title with area of specialization required. • Name of employer. (Blind or box ads can not be accepted.) • Description of position, responsibilities involved, permanent or temporary, tenure-track or not, etc. • Minimum qualifications required including any restrictions on the basis of geographical, age, and/or religious factors. • Salary range and period covered. • Closing date for applications and date position will commence. • Indication if interview expenses are not to be fully paid. • List of documents to accompany initial letter of application, e.g., vitae, names of references, etc. • Name and address of person to whom application should be directed. Placement of an advertisement implies that: • Jobs exist as described. • There is/are no prescribed candidate(s). • Employer will acknowledge receipt of applicant’s material. • It is recommended that advertisers inform an applicant when (s)he is eliminated from consideration or when the position is filled. Responding to an advertisement implies that: • Training experience and interests are accurately represented by letter of application and supporting material and are consonant with those specified in the advertisement. • Applicant should notify prospective employer if (s)he no longer wishes to be considered for the position. Equal Employment Opportunity The American Psychological Association endorses equal employment opportunity practices and accepts only ads that are not discriminatory on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, or physical disability. In keeping with this policy the use of “recent Ph.D.” in APA gradPSYCH advertising is not allowed on the basis that it is potentially age-discriminatory (see U.S. Department of Labor prohibition on use of “recent graduate”). The term “beginning-level salary” may be used. Positions may also be defined in terms of teaching load, specified number of years away from a tenure decision, or requirements of certain skills. We reserve the right to edit all copy and to refuse ads that are not in consonance with the principles of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Veterans’ Reemployment Rights Act Handicap Bias, the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The Equal Employment Opportunity Act in addition to Public Law 100-238 makes specific legally permissible exceptions to discrimination in hiring by religious institutions, Indian tribes, and federal correctional facilities. For this reason certain position opening advertisements will include job opening restrictions on the basis of religious, racial, and age factors. Policy concerning advertisements appearing in APA publications: The publication of any advertisement by the American Psychological Association (APA) is neither an endorsement of the advertiser nor of the products or services advertised. APA is not responsible for any claims made in an advertisement. Advertisers may not, without prior consent, incorporate in a subsequent advertisement or promotional piece the fact that a product or service has been advertised in an APA publication. gradPSYCH is received mid to the later part of the month of issue. APA recommends that response deadlines in advertisements be no earlier than the 15th of the month following the month of publication. The acceptability of an ad for publication in APA publications is based upon legal, social, professional, and ethical considerations. All advertising must be in keeping with the generally scholarly and professional nature of the publication. In addition, the association reserves the right to refuse advertising submitted for the purpose of airing either side of controversial, social, or professional issues. The general policy is stated as follows: “The publications of the APA are published for and on behalf of the membership to advance psychology as a science, as a profession, and as means of promoting human welfare. The association, therefore, reserves the right to unilaterally REJECT, OMIT, OR CANCEL, advertising which it deems to be not in the best interest of these objectives, or which by its tone, content, or appearance is not in keeping with the essentially scientific, scholarly and professional nature of its publications. Conditions, printed or otherwise, which conflict with this policy will not be binding on the publisher.” Deadlines: All new ads, ad cancellations, and corrections, as well as instructions to rerun a previous advertisement, must be received in writing. Advertisements can be submitted online at Non-recruitment ads can be submitted via Recruitment at Upcoming closing dates for 2011 are as follows: March September November February 9 August 8 October 11, or include a request when placing a display ad.
