EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Social Psychological and Personality Science

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), the Society of Australasian Social Psychologists (SASP) and the Asian Association for Social Psychology (AASP). 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
