Articles, Reports and Special Issues

GPIR publishes standard quantitative research and review articles, typically 5000-8000 words, excluding references, tables, and figures. Single study papers are welcome; however, these must be sufficiently powered and make an important contribution to the literature. GPIR does not currently accept short reports or qualitative work. If authors wish to submit longer or shorter articles, this should be discussed in advance with the editor by e-mail. Manuscripts should be prepared strictly in accordance with APA publication guidelines as described in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th ed.).

Of the 8 issues published each year one or two are typically thematic Special Issues which highlight hot, novel or controversial topics in group processes and intergroup relations. Special Issues are peer-reviewed like regular issues but they are guest edited. Special Issues can be initiated by the journal editors who invite guest editors, or they can be initiated by scholars in the field. If you feel you have an idea for a Special Issue that you would like to guest edit contact the Special Issues Editor, Michael Hogg.
