Aims: The Doctoral Programme in Psychology Investigation expects developing a high-level research competences in the different fields of Behavioural Sciences, in a multidisciplinary and cooperative environment, in the framework of a general character programme. Without forgetting the deepening in the most recent advances in knowledge, the programme objective consists of providing the students of the research competences to be able to develop an investigation with high levels of stringency, quality and update in any thematic research of psychology. This orientation allows, on one hand, an optimization of academic resources. On the other hand, it offers a great transdifferentiation respect the researchs that can be developed within the programme, when incorporating a great number of researchers and research lines. Finally, it establishes opportunities of collaboration, of multidisciplinary research development, and offers unique opportunities to share knowledge, experiences and skills between researchers of different psychology fields.

Description: The viability of the programme is favoured by the integration in an only programme of lines, researchers and contents that previously were divided in numerous programmes. From this point of view, the programme will include a considerable number of new researchers, which will allow the development of numerous non-regulated training activities covering a broad spectrum of possibilities. Also, the integration in an only programme of a great diversity of research lines will strenghten the synergies between different research teams, themes and even different perspectives and orientations. The participation of numerous research lines will favoured the execution of an important volume of research, while it will allow the coordination of the requirement criteria and scientific rigour more advanced in the development of the research competences of doctoral students. Additionally, it is expected to encourage the orientation to publishing the research results according to the most rigorous standards of the scientific community. The multidisciplinary character of the research in Psychology and the wide variety of themes that can be tackled by the researchers will be favoured by the participation in the same programme of distinct approximations, fields of work and research approaches, while allowing to optimise the management processes related to the research training of the doctoral students.
