Personality and Social Psychology Review

Personality and Social Psychology Review (PSPR) is devoted to publishing original theoretical papers and conceptual review articles in personality and social psychology. PSPR is intended as a forum for conceptual pieces that initiate new lines of research and theory or provide a coherent framework for existing theory and programs of research. The journal emphasizes theory-based reviews of empirical contributions to a substantive area of research and offers integrative theoretical formulations concerning work in a given area of personality and/or social psychology. The journal does not publish methodological papers or methodological critiques unless they make a direct and substantial contribution to theory. Suitable topics for submission include, but are not limited to, attitudes and social cognition, personality development, personality assessment, interpersonal processes, group behavior, and intergroup relations. Occasionally PSPR publishes other pieces of particular interest to members of the Society, such as special topical
issues, selected symposia, and invited addresses. All papers are reviewed with respect to their scholarly merit.
