Journal of the International Society of Political Psychology

Political Psychology, the journal of the International Society of Political Psychology, is dedicated to the analysis of the interrelationships between psychological and political processes. International contributors draw on a diverse range of sources, including cognitive psychology, political science, economics, history, international relations, philosophy, political theory, sociology, and social and clinical psychology.

Political Psychology is in over 4,000 institutions worldwide, and in 2013 there were over 605,000 downloads of manuscripts published in the journal.
