Social Psychological Review: Call for Papers

Have you considered submitting a paper to the Social Psychological Review? We are currently accepting submissions.

The SPR is a bi-annual journal affiliated with the Social Psychology section of the BPS publication. Each edition is circulated among our vibrant community of Social Psychology Section members.

The SPR publishes research articles including empirical papers, theoretical papers, critical literature reviews, and short reports. We also publish book reviews and opinion pieces about issues of interest to social psychologists. For more information see here.

We will consider any publication in the area of social psychology and the disciplines that it overlaps with. Questions and queries can be directed to the editor Dr Claire Campbell ([email protected]).
