The European Journal of Social Psychology is a truly international forum for high quality, peer reviewed, original research in all areas of social psychology and from all parts of the world. Our diverse editorial team encourages submissions that provide a significant contribution to the understanding of social psychological phenomena and are based on empirical, meta-analytical or theoretical research. Methodological contributions to social psychology are also welcome.
The European Journal of Social Psychology is open to publication of high quality research on all topics within the field. The topics covered include, among others, intergroup relations, group processes, social cognition, attitudes, social influence and persuasion, self and identity, verbal and nonverbal communication, language and thought, affect and emotion, embodied and situated cognition, cultural and cross-cultural phenomena, societal psychology and individual differences of social-psychological relevance.
The journal was originally published by Mouton & Co., The Hague, and the first issues were published in 1971. In July 1977, publication of the journal was taken over by John Wiley & Sons, where it has since remained.

Journal Grant Scheme
Although there are no complimentary subscriptions to the European Journal of Social Psychology, funds are available from the European Association of Social Psychology for a limited number of subscription grants to EJSP. These grants are intended for educational institutions that are interested in developing local research and scholarship, but lack the financial resources to take out a normal subscription to the journal. Each grant will cover the cost of a single subscription to EJSP and will run for an initial period of 3 years. Letters of application should be addressed to the Executive Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org.
These letters should include assurances that:
- The journal will be available to undergraduate and graduate students as well as research and teaching staff.
- The journal will be controlled by a librarian at an educational institution in which relevant research is carried out.
- The recipient institution has a shortage of funds that makes it impossible to subscribe to the journal in the normal way.
