SPPS is a unique short reports journal in social and personality psychology. Its aim is to publish cutting-edge brief reports of single studies, or very succinct reports of multiple studies, and will be geared toward a speedy review and publication process to allow groundbreaking research to be quickly available to the field. Articles should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references) and may present new theory, new data, new methods, or any combination of these. Preference will be given to articles that:
- have theoretical and practical significance
- represent an advance to social psychological or personality science
- are of broad interest both within and outside of social and personality psychology
- are written to be understandable by a wide range of readers, including science writers for the popular press
