Social Psychology is a publication dedicated to international research in social psychology as well as a forum for scientific discussion and debate. The first issue of Social Psychology, with English as the sole publishing language, will appear in January 2008, and there will be four issues per year.
Aims and Scope
The journal welcomes empirical and theoretical contributions to basic research in social psychology, to methodology and philosophy of science related to social psychology, as well as contributions covering research in any of the applied fields of social psychology, such as economics, marketing, politics, law, sports, the environment, the community, or health. Since many topics in social psychology are closely related to issues in other branches of psychology or, more generally, in the social sciences and humanities, the journal is open to contributions of an interdisciplinary nature.
There are two categories of submission: Full-length articles (with a maximum length of 6,000 words) and brief research reports (with a maximum length of 2,500 words).
Experience and Innovation
The journal was published until volume 38 (2007) as the Zeitschrift für Sozialpsychologie (ISSN 0044-3514). Drawing therefore on over 30 years of experience and tradition in publishing high-quality, innovative science, Social Psychology has an internationally renowned team of editors and consulting editors from all areas of basic and applied social psychology, thus ensuring that the highest international standards are maintained.
Social Psychology offers a rapid and transparent peer-review process and a short time-lag between acceptance of papers and publication. The time between manuscript submission and editorial decision is usually less than eight weeks.
