Culture & Psychology is a leading international peer reviewed journal of scholarly contributions, integrating various aspects of the general notion of culture with scientific psychology.

Culture in its various forms—semiotic mediation, situated activity, dialogical nature of the self and its environment, social representing of human living—is present in each and every moment in our human lives. The science of cultural psychology unites psychology, anthropology, sociology, and history into a general science of cultural being. Its focus is on basic understanding of the psychology of human beings: their identity, social conduct, intra- and intersubjective experiences, emotions, and everyday creativity. The goal of Culture & Psychology is to lead the international scholarly community towards new general theoretical approaches in psychology that include culture. It is not an outlet for purely empirical papers of comparison of people from different ethnic groups. Empirical work is published if demonstrated to be relevant for theory, and adequacy of the data to the phenomena is carefully scrutinized. Predoctoral students and scholars from a diverse set of educational achievements are invited to submit their work. In particular, our outlet of Syntheses is directed for their scholarship.

"Culture & Psychology exhibit[s] a range of thought still fresh enough to remain open to the varieties of experience... [The] high degree of organization not only gives a remarkable coherence to the issues, it also exhibits the cross-disciplinary excitement that arises when psychologists begin to claim culture as a relevant aspect of human psychology" Times Literary Supplement

"A much-needed addition to the field, in line with the growing recognition that all development, all thinking, acting or feeling takes place in a cultural context" Jacqueline Goodnow

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Culture & Psychology addresses the centrality of culture necessary for a basic understanding of the psychology of human beings: their identity, social conduct, intra- and intersubjective experiences, emotions and semiotic creativity.

By drawing on diverse theoretical backgrounds, the editorial aim is to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum for scholarly investigations and discussions that will advance our basic knowledge of the self in its historical and cultural contexts. The orientation of the journal is towards formulating new conceptualizations of culture in psychology, together with theoretically relevant empirical investigations. Contributions from anthropology, sociology, education, ethnography, cultural history, linguistics, communication studies and philosophy will further enhance the journal's commitment to interdisciplinary psychology.
