The Executive Committee of the European Association of Social Psychology is inviting applications for a three-year term as Editor of the European Review of Social Psychology (ERSP), beginning in January 2023. We are looking for a joint application from two individuals who propose to share the editorial role as co-editors. Ideally, the applicant team will reflect the diversity of the association, in terms of geography, gender, career stage, and potentially other diversity indicators. We expect the new editors to take up the journal in January 2023, but the current editors have gnerously agree to provide a smooth transitioning during the first half of 2023.

The European Review of Social Psychology is an international open-submission review journal. It provides an outlet for substantial, theory-based reviews of empirical work addressing the full range of topics covered by the field of social psychology. Articles published in ERSP typically review a program of the author’s own research, as evidenced by the author's own papers published in leading peer-reviewed journals. The journal welcomes theoretical contributions that are underpinned by a substantial body of empirical research, which locate the research program within a wider body of published research in that area, and provide an integration that is greater than the sum of the published articles. The journal does not publish original empirical studies. Potential authorship is international, and papers are edited with the help of a distinguished, international editorial board.

Applicants must be members of EASP and ideally should have extensive editorial experience in a role such as journal editor, associate editor or book editor. They should be motivated and able to maintain the high standard of editorship and standing of the European Review of Social Psychology, and to promote the development of Social Psychology through the publication of high-quality research. Editors are also encouraged to actively increase the geographical and theoretical diversity represented in the journal.
Potential applicants wishing to discuss the role informally may email the EASP Journals Officer Roland Imhoff (roland.imhoff@uni-mainz.de), and either or both of the current ERSP Editors Rhiannon Turner (r.turner@qub.ac.uk), and Gordon Hodson (ghodson@brocku.ca).

Applications should be sent via email to the Executive Officer (office@easp.eu), and include a curriculum vitae and a brief statement (1 page) outlining the team’'s vision for the future development of ERSP. Applications should be received by August 31, 2022.
