Society of Personality and Social Psychology places both its 
journals with SAGE Publications

Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, and Singapore (December 4, 2006) 
- SAGE Publications announced today it has been selected by the 
Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) to publish 
the society's review journal, Personality and Social Psychology 
Review (PSPR). For over two decades, SAGE has published the 
Society's other scholarly journal, Personality and Social 
Psychology Bulletin, a leading forum for original empirical 
papers in the discipline.

Moving from Lawrence Erlbaum and Associates, PSPR will join the 
SAGE portfolio effective January 2007. Institutional 
subscriptions will include Combined (Print and E-access), 
E-access Only, and Print Only options. Beginning with its 11th 
volume, the journal will be available electronically on the 
enhanced SAGE Journals Online platform starting January 3, 2007. 
The journal's new homepage on SAGE Journals Online will be 
http://pspr.sagepub.com. A new cover design will debut with the 
first SAGE issue.

Published quarterly, Personality and Social Psychology Review is 
devoted to publishing original theoretical papers and conceptual 
review articles in personality and social psychology. PSPR is 
intended as a forum to initiate new lines of research and theory 
and to also provide a coherent framework for existing theory and 
programs of research. Occasionally PSPR publishes other pieces of 
particular interest, such as special topical issues, selected 
symposia, and invited addresses. The journal's impact factor is 
2.157, and it is ranked 5 out of 46 social psychology journals in 
the 2005 Thomson Scientific Journal Citation Reports.

"We're pleased that SPSP has entrusted SAGE with both their 
renowned journals. We believe having both publications with SAGE 
and on the same online platform is paramount to their continued 
success and will contribute to the Society's growth in the years 
to come," commented Dr. Peter Binfield, SAGE Journals Editorial 
Director. "Both journals are a terrific fit with our expanding 
list of books and journals in psychology, and will benefit from 
worldwide exposure on SAGE Journals Online."
