European Journal of Personality


eISSN: 10990984 | ISSN: 08902070 | Current volume: 38 | Current issue: 3 Frequency: Bi-monthly
European Journal of Personality publishes a diverse range of empirical, review, theoretical, and methodological articles that are consistent with its aims and scope and meet its Evaluation Criteria. Most notable topics covered in the Journal include the structure, assessment, causes and consequences of personality differences between people, variability and developmental changes within individuals and the interactions of these with experiences. Studies on the applications of personality science in other fields or for practical purposes are also welcome.

The European Journal of Personality is an official journal of the European Association of Personality Psychology. It aims to advance empirical and theoretical personality psychology, within Europe and elsewhere, by publishing original research, meta-analyses and reviews of existing research, theoretical discussions and methodological advances.

Personality psychology aims to provide an integrative understanding of individual differences between persons as well as the psychological structures and dynamics that characterise the individual as a whole.

Accordingly, European Journal of Personality publishes personality research in its broadest sense, including but not restricted to topics such as the structure, causes and consequences of individual differences, and short-term variability and developmental changes within individuals alongside their interactions with social and non-social experiences.

Besides accepting regular submissions, European Journal of Personality takes a proactive approach to advancing personality science by publishing invited articles, commentary and special issues.

With its long-standing legacy, rigorous editorial policy and strict adherence to open science standards, European Journal of Personality is a premium outlet for the field of personality research.
