Social Psychological and Personality Science receives manuscript submissions online through SAGEtrack, powered by ScholarOne's Manuscript CentralTM. Authors should register for an account at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/spps, where they will create a login ID and password. SAGEtrack serves as the center for editorial staff to communicate with authors, editors, and reviewers electronically, and it functions as the platform for the review process.
SPPS is a unique short reports journal in social and personality psychology. Its aim is to publish concise reports of single or multiple studies that provide meaningful contributions to our understanding of important issues in social and personality psychology. SPPS strives to publish innovative, cutting-edge, and impactful research. It is geared toward a speedy review and publication process to allow groundbreaking research to become part of the scientific conversation quickly. Articles cannot exceed 5,000 words (excluding references), and may present new theory, new data, new methods, or any combination of these. Preferences will be given to articles that
Submissions to SPPS may not exceed 5,000 words. The word count includes all text, including but not limited to, the abstract, main body, notes, acknowledgements, tables, and figures. To calculate the word count for your submission, please use your word processor to find the total number of words for the entire submission, then subtract the number of words from your references section only. When you determine your final word count please include that information on the title page of your submission. If your submission contains large tables or data sets that you would like to include as a supplementary file for online publication only, you may upload that as a separate file in the submission process and designate the file accordingly. Any file that is designated as being for online publication only will not need to be included in the word count.
SPPS conducts a double blind peer review process. Please prepare your manuscript for the double blind process by submitting your title page and main document as two separate files. A short 1-3 sentence biography for each author should be included in the title page, along with any other identifying information such as author names, contact information, author notes or acknowledgements. An abstract of no more than 150 words and list of 4-5 keywords should be included in your main document file, along with the main body, footnotes, tables, and figures. The main document file should be blinded and suitable for viewing by reviewers.
Journal policy prohibits an author from submitting the same manuscript for consideration by another journal and does not allow publication of a manuscript that has been published in whole or in part by another journal. Authors must also verify compliance with APA ethical standards in the treatment of participants, human or animal.
Submissions to SPPS should follow the style guidelines set forth in the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (including "Guidelines to Reduce Bias in Language" on pp. 70 -77).
If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to nonsubscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.
