Personality Science (PS)

Personality Science (PS)

Personality Science (PS), owned by the European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP), seeks to be the premiere outlet for any insights on personality and individual differences – cutting across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

While personality is often studied in psychology, it is PS' mission to unify the nascent field of a personality-centered science by bringing together work from different disciplines and perspectives even outside of psychology.

The journal publishes theoretical, methodological, empirical, applied, and comment papers of short- to medium-length on the biological, psychological, and social origins, expressions, structures, dynamics, processes, mechanisms, functioning, development, and consequences of non-pathological and pathological personality (broadly conceived) as well as their definition, operationalization, assessment, and potential applications. Individual differences in humans, animals, virtual avatars, intelligent system, and robots are of interest to the journal. Papers reporting empirical data are expected to adhere to the transparency and open science guidelines of the journal. The scientific examination of human, non-human, and artificial/virtual personality is not confined to any paradigm, methodology, type of research, or domain of individual differences. Accordingly, PS publishes a diverse array of topics that showcase how rich and vibrant the field of personality science is. It thus seeks to provide a worldwide forum for scientists, teachers, and practitioners who are interested in the scientific study of personality and individual differences.

Europe's Journal of Psychology (EJOP)

Europe's Journal of Psychology (EJOP)

Quarterly electronic publication of scientific psychology featuring original studies, research, critical contributions, interviews and book reviews intended for both psychologists and psychology students worldwide.

Europe’s Journal of Psychology is meant to facilitate communication between psychologists, and to give them access to high-quality professional information, thus fostering the scientific psychological community in Europe and worldwide. Although primarily targeted at the European public, EJOP gladly hosts contributions from psychologists irrespective of their geographical location.

EJOP’s main objectives are to expand, on the one hand, the publication space offered to psychologists and, on the other hand, to increase the number of psychology journals that take a more generalist and eclectic approach to psychology issues given the current tendency to produce rather highly specialized works.

Therefore, the journal was conceived in such a manner as to be accessible for both young researchers and established professionals and also to a very large area of scientific psychological 'genres' and schools. Its structure gives room to a diverse, eclectic and multidisciplinary range of psychology studies and research.

Indexed by DOAJ, EBSCO, Scopus, ProQuest, PsycEXTRA, and PubPsych.
