General Information

Social Psychological and Personality Science (SPPS) is a quarterly journal published since January, 2010, from the Association for Research in Personality (ARP), the European Association of Social Psychology (EASP), the Society of Experimental Social Psychology (SESP), the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP), and other co-sponsoring organizations to be announced soon. The founding societies provide their membership with complimentary subscriptions, providing the journal with a reach of over 6,000 scholars in social and personality psychology worldwide!

SPPS is a unique short reports journal in social and personality psychology. Its aim is to publish cutting-edge, short reports of single studies, or very succinct reports of multiple studies, and will be geared toward a speedy review and publication process to allow groundbreaking research to be quickly available to the field. Articles should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references) and may present new theory, new data, new methods, or any combination of these. Preferences will be given to articles that

  • have theoretical and practical significance
  • represent an advance to social psychological or personality science
  • will be of broad interest both within and outside of social and personality psychology
  • are written to be intelligible to a wide range of readers including science writers for the popular press

How to subscribe
All members of EASP have electronic access to the journal. For your electronic access, please login to the members' area of the website (if you forgot your login and password, please contact Sibylle Classen).

It is important that your library subscribes to our new journal, for two reasons. First, it will allow your students and colleagues in adjacent fields to access the journal's content. Library subscriptions ensure that your students learn the latest research results, and can use them in their own work. Second, library subscriptions provide income to EASP, and this helps to keep our dues low, provide (travel) grants to postgraduate members, subsidize small group meetings, summer schools and our General Meeting, and so forth.
