Abstract: Researchers frequently have to decide how to publish journal articles from a large data set. When it is not possible to write a single, integrative article from such a data set, the issue of publishing multiple journal articles arises. In this article, in the context of family psychology, 2 operational criteria for determining when it is appropriate to publish multiple articles from a single data set are proposed: (1) when it is not possible to write a single integrative article that is clear, digestible, and meaningful and (2) when the multiple articles have distinct purposes. Recommendations are also made to authors who have decided to publish multiple articles from the same data set.
