Call for self-nominations: Associate Editors for JSPP, three year term

Dear Colleagues,

due to a continued increase in submissions, we are seeking to appoint several new Associate Editors for the Journal of Social and Political Psychology (JSPP) for a three-year term (2020-2023; renewable).


JSPP ( is a peer-reviewed open-access journal that is supported by public funding and does not charge author fees. It supports open science practices (see and publishes articles at the intersection of social and political psychology from different epistemological, methodological (quantitative and qualitative), theoretical, and cultural perspectives, and from different regions across the globe, that substantially advance the understanding of social problems, their reduction, and the promotion of social justice. The journal has an international editorial board ( and team of editors (


Please send self-nominations no later than August 15, 2020 to We will start reviewing and accepting nominations on a rolling basis already prior to the deadline.
Your self-nomination should include:
- a brief statement of motivation and interests in the editorial position, as well as ability to commit to the workload (see below)
- a statement of expertise regarding theories, methods, research topics, and cultural contexts

- a curriculum vitae that lists publications and any other experiences related to editing and publishing

Associate Editors are expected to handle on average one manuscript every month or two, and to be available for occasional additional consultation on desk rejections. Although we try to assign manuscripts to editors within their areas of expertise, this is not always possible and associate editors must also be willing to handle manuscripts beyond their specific areas of expertise. Because the journal is an open-access journal without publishing fees for authors, editors must also be willing to be more involved in overseeing the copyediting process.


We are open to nominations from candidates working on any area of social and political psychology.

We are particularly interested in receiving nominations of candidates from regions currently underrepresented in the editorial team and in general aim to increase the diversity of our editorial team.
