Social Psychological Bulletin (published as Psychologia Społeczna until issue 43) is a quarterly journal issued by the Polish Association of Social Psychology (Polskie Stowarzyszenie Psychologii Społecznej. The Bulletin publishes original empirical studies, review papers, scientific debates, and methodological contributions primarily in basic and applied social psychology. One of the aims of the journal is to bridge the gap between psychological and sociological social psychology. The Bulletin will also publish papers from other branches of psychology and from related disciplines, e.g., the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences, that combine social psychological and other approaches. In addition to individual articles, SPB publishes organized discussions around key papers, which can be invited or submitted.
Submissions to SPB should be prepared in English. Empirical contributions may be full length articles (no more than 8,000 words, excluding references and tables from the word count, but with the limit of 4 tables) or short research reports (up to 4,000 words, 2 tables). Abstracts should be no more than 200 words. Review papers and key papers subject to commentaries should not exceed 10,000 words. All manuscripts should be written according to the guidelines set forth in the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.
