General information

Cover European Journal of Social PsychologyThe European Journal of Social Psychology is an international forum for original research in all areas of social psychology. It is expected that most published articles will be based on empirical results. Theoretical and methodological manuscripts will also be considered if they provide significant contributions to the understanding of social phenomena. The length of articles depends on their goal and on the scope of the contribution. Both shorter and longer articles have a place in the European Journal. However, manuscripts should not exceed a limit of 40 pages (double spaced, excluding tables and references). Articles may be reports of empirical research, major reviews of research on specific areas or presentation of original theoretical positions.

The journal was originally published by Mouton & Co., The Hague, and the first issues were published in 1971. In July 1977, publication of the journal was taken over by John Wiley & Sons, where it has since remained.

Journal Grant Scheme

Although there are no complimentary subscriptions to the European Journal of Social Psychology, funds are available from the European Association of Social Psychology for a limited number of subscription grants to EJSP. These grants are intended for educational institutions that are interested in developing local research and scholarship, but lack the financial resources to take out a normal subscription to the journal. Each grant will cover the cost of a single subscription to EJSP and will run for an initial period of 3 years. Letters of application should be addressed to the Executive Officer: sibylle@easp.eu.

These letters should include assurances that:
1. The journal will be available to undergraduate and graduate students as well as research and teaching staff.
2. The journal will be controlled by a librarian at an educational institution in which relevant research is carried out.
3. The recipient institution has a shortage of funds that makes it impossible to subscribe to the journal in the normal way.
4. At the end of the three year period, the recipient institution will provide a report on the use that has been made of the journal.
