European Bulletin of Social Psychology 32,1 (May 2020)


Dear friends and colleagues,

We have entered a time incomparable with anything most of us have experienced before.

The immediate consequences for our members and our association are captured in the President’s corner below. While we don’t know when this is over, or in what reality we will land when the new normal sets in, we can be sure that solid scientific evidence from social psychology will be much needed. With this said, we are happy to introduce a new volume of the Bulletin, and hope that you, as usual, will find lots of interesting readings.

All best wishes,
Torun and Tina

President's Corner

Dear members,

the changes that have been implemented recently in most of our societies due to the Covid-19 pandemics go far beyond what most of us would have anticipated in their wildest fantasies. To save lives, social contacts are highly restricted, schools have been closed, and home office is the norm rather than the exception – at least among academics. In other words, there is not only the threat to our own lives and the lives of our beloved ones, there is also the substantial change of our social interactions that we have to deal with. On top of that, it becomes more and more clear that this is not only going to last days or weeks but rather for months or even years, until a vaccine or a medication is available.

We hope that you are coping well with these dramatic threats and changes. As many countries currently change from the immediate lockdown to the long way back to normal, it is time to reflect how the pandemic and the measures taken has affected the social psychology community, as well as how things will develop.

Changes in research content

Many of you have applied social psychology to the situation resulting from the pandemic. Social psychology has a lot to say about physical distancing, solidarity, behaviour change, responses to threats and many other topics of utmost societal relevance in the current situation. It is, thus, not surprising that social psychologists are giving advice to policy makers, are more present in the media, and conduct research on the current situation. All of this underlines the relevance of our discipline. To support your ability to give evidence-based responses to the current situation, the EASP has put out five grants for rapid-response Covid-19 studies - see grant awards below.

Changes in conditions for research

All this research and communication must happen from a distance. Conferences have been cancelled, participants cannot come into labs, and departments have been closed. Even printed journals (that we should five up for ecological reasons anyways) do not reach us, because they are usually transported on passenger planes, most of which have to stay on the ground for now. If you are still signed up for the print versions of the EJSP and ERSP, you will receive the missing issues as soon as international delivery is running again. Unfortunatley, according to the publishers, this might take until next year.

Fortunately though we are living in the digital age and can use online journals, emails, Zoom, and similar services. Still these substitutes are only a second best solution. It is hard to predict when we will get back to normal, but the EASP will start activities over the next couple of months to keep up the interaction with the social psychology community in Europe and beyond. Here is what we have planned for the near future:

  • Presentation and discussion of the results from the #metoo survey via a video-stream with the opportunity for discussion.
  • Presentation of the results of the vision work held in October 2019 in Amsterdam and a survey regarding your interest in future new EASP activities.
  • Election of new Executive Committee members.
  • July 3rd, 2020: Online business meeting of the EASP and change of EC members. The meeting will take place at 10-12h CEST UTC+2 (Central European Summer Time).

More details about each of the above activities will follow in separate e-mails soon.

However, the perhaps most important date for your agenda is the one for the postponed General Meeting in Krakow: Please save the date: July 16-20th, 2021 for the General Meeting. We sincerely hope to be able to hold the meeting at that point in time and will do our very best to make it happen. To be prepared for the case that bringing all of you together will not be an option mid of next year, we are also working on plan B (e.g., supporting more regional meetings and online activities) and return to having real General Meeting as soon as possible thereafter.

If you have ideas for any other type of activity that will help us in the social psychology community to stay connected in these difficult times, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We are more than happy to support such initiatives as much as we can to reduce the social distance in times in which we need to stay physically distant from each other.

Best wishes for your health and your work!

President of the EASP on behalf of the Executive Committee

Appropriate Conduct in Science Requires Respectful Treatment of People

by Naomi Ellemers, April 2020

In the academic system, scholarly reputations are decisive for people’s career opportunities. These are established in relatively small and specialized international networks. Because of the high degree of specialization, there typically is a limited number of experts in the world who are able to really judge the quality of one’s work, to vouch for the quality of one’s contributions, or to offer employment opportunities in a particular area of expertise. This makes junior scholars in particular vulnerable to ill treatment that takes advantage of their dependent situation.

People at every career stage are well aware of this power asymmetry. Organizational scientists have documented this as a characteristic making academic institutions particularly conducive to (sustained) incidence of bullying, power abuse and (sexual) harassment (Tenbrunsel, Rees, & Diekmann, 2019). Investigations by relevant professional networks (e.g., the US National Academy of Sciences i) and websites collecting personal stories attest to the regular incidence and devastating implications of such unhealthy and unsafe work climates in academia ii, iii. These accounts are substantiated by academic research that documents negative effects for academic engagement and health, even for bystanders (Smith, Jaurique, & Ryan, 2016).

An important reason why such ill treatment can continue without being corrected is that the key value of academic independence affords a lot of discretion to leaders of small research/teaching units. However, their scholarly excellence and expertise in their field of study does not necessarily make them good managers or supportive mentors. Yet, the relative independence of different specialized units makes it difficult for colleagues elsewhere in the university or even for faculty or university management to be aware of what daily practices are on the work-floor, to form their own independent judgments of whether career decisions are made on the basis of legitimate criteria, or to intervene in case of mismanagement or ill treatment.

For the junior scholars who observe or are targets of such behavior it is very difficult to verify whether it might be appropriate to complain about their treatment or how they can fight for their rights. This is compounded by concerns about antagonizing senior scholars in the field – on whom junior scholars depend for academic opportunities and positive career recommendations. This is why it makes sense to introduce more explicit behavioral rules and guidelines for professional behavior in a scientific context. Even if these should be self-evident, formalizing codes of conduct and specifying procedures on what can be done in the case of transgressions is an important step in providing clarity on what to expect from our colleagues.

During the past years the emerging understanding that more guidance is needed has prompted different parties to specify which behaviors should be seen as appropriate or inappropriate in an academic context. In our discipline this has resulted in guidance for conduct at scientific events and meetings, for instance at activities organized by EASP iv or SPSP v. Specifying how misconduct can materialize in particular contexts and events can help each institution take responsibility for the activities where it has jurisdiction. However, this is not enough to protect junior scientists – for instance when evidence of misconduct emerged in the context of activities that fall outside the responsibility of that particular institution.

This is why an increasing number of granting bodies, scholarly networks and scientific organizations around the world have begun to go beyond consideration of their own activities in guarding against the continuation of inappropriate practices. Examples are funding conditions at the US National Institutes of Health vi, and National Science Foundation vii, viii, and reference check policies for scientists employed at campuses of the University of California ix. These request that individuals and institutions make available relevant information about known concerns relating to scientific misconduct, allowing them to take such information into account in making their own funding and employment decisions. Importantly, these guidelines define scientific misconduct in a relatively broad sense x, not only referring to how scientists treat data, but also to how they treat people xi.

The general aim of such efforts is to communicate more clearly about norms of acceptable behavior. Allowing for more transparency and accountability in reporting of professional misconduct is an important condition for such communications xii. Providing clear procedures to deal with concerns that are expressed should guard against false allegations, but also help prevent that lack of information or non-disclosure agreements on known incidents allow institutions to silence the victim and ‘pass the harasser’ xiv. As an international collaborative network that connects junior and senior scholars in our discipline from across the world, EASP has an important role to play in reconsidering and expanding current policies on research misconduct. I encourage the EASP to fulfil this role by taking responsibility - beyond the meetings that it sponsors – in contributing to safe research conditions for all its members.

New Date for the General Meeting

We are pleased to announce the new date for the General Meeting of the EASP in Krakow, Poland: We plan to hold the meeting July 16-20th, 2021. We are very grateful that the social psychology group at the Jagiellonian University is willing to organize the meeting one year later than origianlly scheduled. We are very grateful to Marcin Bukowski, Katarzyna Jaśko, Ewa Szumowska and Piotr Dragon. Thank you all. Also please note, that accepted contributions will get priority in the new conference program and there will also be a possibility to revise submitted titles and abstracts. 

More information will follow at the end of this year!

Covid-19 Grant Awards

With more than 70 applications, the response from the scientific community was overwhelming. Given that our resources are limited and the quality of the proposals was very high, we had a very hard time to select projects. Ultimately, the following five projects received support:

  • Olga Bialobrzeska (Warsaw, Poland)
    Everyday kindness in times of COVID-19: restoring social connectedness and enhancing prosociality through online interventions
  • Matt Easterbrook (Sussex, United Kingdom)
    Will COVID-19 increase educational inequalities?
  • Nina Hansen (Groningen, The Netherlands)
    Integration despite isolation. Social connections and belonging of refugees in times of Corona
  • Stefano Pagliaro (Chieti, Italy)
    Improving Institutional Communication in Times of COVID-19: Antecedents, Processes, and Consequences
  • Frenk van Harreveld (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
    Attitude networks of the novel coronavirus

We look forward to seeing the preprints and open data from the funded projects soon. For all the others: Keep up doing this important work and communicate it to the public. This is one way how, we as a discipline, can contribute to a successful mastering of the social side effects of the pandemic.
