Abstract Controversy surrounds the nature and extent of changing authorship patterns in science. Some believe that the single-author paper will soon be extinct, while others claim that patterns have remained remarkably constant over the years. Because previous work has been cross-sectional and usually related to other disciplines, accurate statements cannot be made about trends in psychology. Longitudinal data derived from the American Journal of Psychology, the British Journal of Psychology, and Psychological Abstracts were examined and revealed that over the last 50 years, there has been a significant decrease in the frequency of single-author papers. Possible reasons for the increase in collaborative research by psychologists are discussed.
