About  the  Journal

The quarterly Psychologia Społeczna is a quarterly, an organ of the Polish Association of Social Psychology. The Journal publishes original empirical studies, high quality review papers, scientific debates, and methodological contributions in all areas of basic and applied social psychology. The journal is open to interdisciplinary approaches from other branches of psychology and from related disciplines - the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. One of the aims of the journal is bridging the gap between psychological and sociological social psychology. Along with individual articles, Psychologia Społeczna publishes organized discussions around key papers, invited or submitted. From time to time, the journal publishes thematic issues prepared by invited editors.

Submissions to Psychologia Społeczna may be either in Polish or in English. Empirical contributions may be full length articles (not more than 30 standard pages) or short research reports (up to 10 pages). Review papers and key papers subject to commentaries should not exceed 40 standard pages. All manuscripts should be typed according to the guidelines set forth in the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Papers in Polish should follow the Polish guidelines, which are a slightly modified version of guidelines set by the APA Publication Manual. They can be accessed at http://liberilibri.pl/sites/default/files/Standardy%20APA-PL.pdf. Submitted manuscripts should not be submitted for consideration to another journal nor should they be published in whole or in part in any other journal.

All submissions to Psychologia Społeczna and all editorial work should proceed online. New users are asked to register online at http://www.editorialmanager.com/pssp/default.asp. For details of submission requirements, please read the Guide for Authors and Tutorial for Authors. Each paper will be reviewed by three independent reviewers. Psychologia Społeczna uses, as a default, a single-blind reviewing procedure (the name of the author(s) are known to the reviewers, the reviewers’ names are anonymous). Our experience has shown that this does not bias the reviewing process in any way. However, if the author(s) wish(es) to keep authorship blind, they are asked to inform the editor about it and remove their names from the body of the manuscript.

The reviewers are asked to follow directives formulated in the Guide for Reviewers and the Tutorial for Reviewers. We place great emphasis on quality of the reviews and the reviewers’ constructive work with our authors.
