Advances in Political Psychology

The second publication of the International Society of Political Psychology

Given the continued growth and explosion of information and interest in political psychology, there is an increasing need for a place where cumulative research findings and theoretical developments are synthesized and integrated in a form accessible to the scholar, student, and practitioner.

The Advances in Political Psychology annual series is intended to fill this need by recording the state of the field and highlighting innovative developments so that those who are interested can keep abreast of what is happening in political psychology. Each annual volume will include a selection articles that capture the diversity of subject matter studied by political psychologists.

PLEASE NOTE: Beginning with the 2016 issue of Advances in Political Psychology, hard copies must be ordered by mid-December each year for $25.00 USD per copy. Ordering information will be announced and posted here late summer/early fall each year. ISPP members will continue to have FREE online access to Advances in Political Psychology content; there is only a fee for hard copies.
