EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

European Bulletin of Social Psychology

About the Bulletin

The EASP has its own newsletter. Until the late 1980s this was simply called Newsletter. From March 1989 onwards, the official title of the newsletter became the European Bulletin of Social Psychology (EBSP). Each issue is numbered by year, volume and issue. The ISSN number is: ISSN 1563-1001.

The purpose of the bulletin is to circulate information within the association and to stimulate exchange and communication among its members. Besides offering official information and the announcement of coming events, the bulletin provides information about members' work (e.g., recent publications), and occasionally publishes informal articles and provides a channel of communication between all members.

Until mid 2010 (EBSP, 22,1) the bulletin was sent out to members as an A5 booklet. From December 2010 onwards (EBSP 22,2), the bulletin is only available on this website.
