New volume of JSPP started

The Journal of Social and Political Psychology has started a new volume in which articles will be published continuously throughout the year.

PsychOpen is proud to announce the latest volume of the Journal of Social and Political Psychology (JSPP). JSPP publishes articles at the intersection of social and political psychology that substantially advance the understanding of social problems, their reduction, and the promotion of social justice. It also welcomes work that focuses on socio-political issues from related fields of psychology (e.g., peace psychology, community psychology, cultural psychology, environmental psychology, media psychology, economic psychology) and encourages submissions with interdisciplinary perspectives.

Coming soon: JSPP's special thematic section on "Decolonizing Psychological Science".

The Cultural Psychology Research Group at the University of Kansas in collaboration with members of the Liberation Psychology Collective at the University of Costa Rica is currently preparing the special thematic section of the Journal of Social and Political Psychology (JSPP) on the theme of "Decolonizing Psychological Science".

It will bring together contributions not just from perspectives of cultural psychology, liberation psychology, or social and political psychology, but also from such related perspectives as community psychology, critical psychology, communication studies, feminist studies, postcolonial studies, and regional or international studies (to name only a few). A more detailed elaboration of this theme can be found here.
