The Social Psychological Review

The Social Psychological Review is the periodical of the Social Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society. The periodical has two aims: first, to provide a forum for the dissemination of empirical research papers, theoretical work, and reviews on key topics and issues of interest to the social psychological community; second, to provide a channel for news and information about people, events, and publications that may be of interest to social psychologists.

The Editor of the journal is Dr Tom Reader (London School of Economics) and the Book Review Editor is Dr Claire Campbell (Edge Hill University).
