EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Call for Applications: Co-Editors of the European Review of Social Psychology

15.11.2017, by Sibylle Classen in publication

Please send your application until January 31, 2018

The Executive Committee of the European Association of Social Psychology is inviting applications for a three- or four-year term as Editor of the European Review of Social Psychology (ERSP), beginning in January 2019. We are looking for a joint application from two individuals who propose to share the editorial role as co-editors. Ideally, the applicant team will reflect the diversity of the association, in terms of geography, gender, and potentially other diversity indicators.

The European Review of Social Psychology is an international open-submission review journal. It provides an outlet for substantial, theory-based reviews of empirical work addressing the full range of topics covered by the field of social psychology. Articles published in ERSP typically review a program of the author’s own research, as evidenced by the author's own papers published in leading peer-reviewed journals. The journal welcomes theoretical contributions that are underpinned by a substantial body of empirical research, which locate the research program within a wider body of published research in that area, and provide an integration that is greater than the sum of the published articles. ERSP also publishes conventional reviews and meta-analyses. The journal does not publish original empirical studies. Potential authorship is international, and papers are edited with the help of a distinguished, international editorial board.

Applicants must be members of EASP and ideally should have extensive editorial experience in a role such as journal editor, associate editor or book editor. They should be motivated and able to maintain the high standard of editorship and standing of the European Review of Social Psychology, and to promote the development of Social Psychology through the publication of high-quality research.

Potential applicants wishing to discuss the role informally may email the EASP Journals Officer Ernestine Gordijn, and either or both of the current ERSP Editors Antony Manstead, and Miles Hewstone.

Applications should be sent via email to the Executive Officer, and include a curriculum vitae and a brief statement (1 page) outlining the team’s vision for the future development of ERSP. Applications should be received by January 31, 2018.
