SAGE issue.

Published quarterly, Personality and Social Psychology Review is devoted
to publishing original theoretical papers and conceptual review articles
in personality and social psychology. PSPR is intended as a forum to
initiate new lines of research and theory and to also provide a coherent
framework for existing theory and programs of research. Occasionally
PSPR publishes other pieces of particular interest, such as special
topical issues, selected symposia, and invited addresses. The journal's
impact factor is 2.157, and it is ranked 5 out of 46 social psychology
journals in the 2005 Thomson Scientific Journal Citation Reports.

"We're pleased that SPSP has entrusted SAGE with both their renowned
journals. We believe having both publications with SAGE and on the same
online platform is paramount to their continued success and will
contribute to the Society's growth in the years to come," commented Dr.
Peter Binfield, SAGE Journals Editorial Director. "Both journals are a
terrific fit with our expanding list of books and journals in
psychology, and will benefit from worldwide exposure on SAGE Journals
