Social Psychology is a peer-reviewed academic journal covering research in social psychology. The editor-in-chief is Christian Unkelbach (University of Cologne).


Social Psychology was established in 1970 as the Zeitschrift für Sozialpsychologie by Hubert Feger, Carl Friedrich Graumann, Klaus Holzkamp, and Martin Irle. Its publishing language was German, and the journal was published by Verlag Hans Huber (Bern, Switzerland). In the second half of the 1980s, the founding editors were successively replaced and terms have since been limited to about four years. In the year 2000, the journal adopted English as a second publishing language, which became the sole publishing language in 2008 when the journal moved to Hogrefe Publishing and its title was changed to Social Psychology. Gerd Bohner (Bielefeld University) became editor-in-chief at that time and was succeeded in the autumn of 2010 by Hans-Peter Erb (Helmut Schmidt University).[1][2][3]
