The International Review of Social Psychology publishes empirical research and theoretical notes in all areas of social psychology. The IRSP emphasizes the scientific quality of its publications in every areas of social psychology. Submitted papers are reviewed by international experts. The journal was created to reflect research advances in a field where theoretical and fundamental questions inevitably convey social significance and implications. It is supported by ADRIPS.
This format contributes to making scientific findings more reliable and replicable. The review process for Registered Reports is divided into two stages. In Stage 1, reviewers assess study proposals before data is collected. In Stage 2, reviewers consider the full study, including results and interpretation.
This format is especially useful for early career researchers, who may start writing their paper and benefit from Stage-1 acceptance before data collection.
