EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

European Bulletin of Social Psychology

The EASP has its own newsletter, until the late eighties simply called Newsletter. From March 1989 on, the official title of the Newsletter became European Bulletin of Social Psychology. Each Bulletin issue is numbered by year, volume and issue. The ISSN number is: ISSN 1563-1001.

The purpose of the Bulletin is to circulate information in the Association and to stimulate exchange and communication among its members. Besides offering official information and the announcement of coming events, the Bulletin provides information about members' work (e.g., recent publications), and occasionally publishes informal articles and provides a channel of communication between all members.

Until mid of 2010 (EBSP, 22,1) the Bulletin was sent as A5 booklet to the membership, from December 2010 onwards (EBSP 22,2), the Bulletin is only available on this website.
