The Consortium for Social Psychological and Personality Science has opened nominations for the editorship of Social Psychological and Personality Science (SPPS) to begin July 1st, 2023.

The Editor-in-Chief shall be responsible for the scientific content of the journal, which currently appears in eight issues per annual volume. SPPS is a unique short reports journal in social and personality psychology. Its aim is to publish concise reports of empirical studies that provide meaningful contributions to our understanding of important issues in social and personality psychology. SPPS strives to publish innovative, rigorous, and impactful research. It is geared toward a speedy review and publication process to allow groundbreaking research to become part of the scientific conversation quickly.

The term of office of the Editor-in-Chief will be for four years. The journal has strong editorial support from the journal publisher (SAGE) as well as a budget for editorial stipends. How this will be distributed to editor, potential co-editors, and associate editors is open to negotiation with the incoming editor. Candidates for the position should have prior editorial experience with a peer-reviewed journal of some standing and should be in the position to offer the significant commitment of time, expertise, and resources that such a position requires.

Nominations (including self-nominations) should be sent with a nominee’s CV and a short letter describing relevant qualifications, editorial experience, and editorial philosophy to Prof. Roland Imhoff (Consortium Chairperson) at roland.imhoff@uni-mainz.de. Please title your email “SPPS nomination” and include all documents (i.e., CV, short letter) in the same email, preferably as PDF attachments. Review of nominations by the Consortium (Roland Imhoff [chair], Judith Harackiewicz, Kerri Johnson, and Katie Corker) will begin on June 30th, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
