 PRESS aims to create an international platform for working together of these disciplines which are seen as different from each other and producing common and effective solutions to current and future human psychological problems. Today, it has become impossible for sciences to work as separate disciplines. On the contrary, it is imperative that disciplines work together to produce effective solutions. In order for the researches of psychology to be effective, it is necessary to collaborate with researchers in the field of application. Most of the problems in the field of education and social sciences are specific so that they can be solved by means of psychology. In this respect, the Journal of Psychology Research on Education and Social Sciences (PRESS) seeks to fill a major gap in this scientific field.
