Qualifications and requirements of candidates

The main qualities needed are:

    • • An established record of scholarship in the field of social psychology
    • • Management skills to supervise the full editorial cycle from manuscript submission through publication and to meet deadlines; and the ability to recruit for the Editorial Board renowned experts with a similar skill set.
    • • We will highly value candidates that intend to adopt an active, ambitious and purposeful editorial role, with creative, solid ideas for the journal’s present and future.

The role also implies the following responsibilities:

-Providing with a clear vision for the direction of the journal during his/her tenure as Editor, as well as advancing the means intended to attain it.

-Assembling a team of Associate Editors, sufficient in number to guarantee expertise of all subdisciplines covered by the journal, as well as to carry out all manuscripts’ peer-review in the language/s admitted.

-Selecting an ample pool of competent, timely reviewers, highly literate in in the language/s admitted. The journal will also provide with its current reviewer database.

-Identifying and appointing members of international renown and prestige to the Editorial Board.

-Processing 100-200 manuscripts per year (of which generally about 25% are sent for review, the remaining 75% being initially dismissed) via an online manuscript submission and peer-review management system.

-Having full, clear institutional support for the duration of the tenure, including additional release time, office space, utilities, use of computers and other equipment, economic support for a full time Editorial Assitant*, student workers and/or other basic expenses.

*As a Taylor & Francis / Routledge publication, International Journal of Social Psychology  may be able to provide partial financial support in the form of a modest annual stipend.



International Journal of Social Psychology  is a bilingual journal – to date, manuscripts are accepted in English and Spanish, and upon acceptance all articles are translated and published in both languages.

However, bilingualism is not required for the position. Whether the Editor intends to use English as the only language of submission, or wishes to maintain the possibility to submit also in Spanish by relying on a Co-Editor and/or a sufficient number of Associate Editors for managing manuscripts submitted in Spanish, is an open decision to be made by the incoming Editor; FIA may provide with suggestions and assistance to this respect.

In any case, the appointed Editor should have access to a network of scholars who may become Associate Editors, members of the Board, and/or reviewers, sufficient to review manuscripts submitted in the language/s established for submission


Journal History

It was one of the first journals in Spanish in the field of Social Psychology, as is the case with most FIA journals in their respective fields.

It was founded 1986 as Revista de Psicología Social in Universidad Autónoma de Madrid by three of the most prominent social psychologists in Spain, and FIA acquired it in 1988, working closely with the Spanish society of social psychologists. Since its beginnings it scrupulously adopted the highest quality standards in the tradition of the best journals worldwide. Because of its quality and high responsiveness to the needs of the field, its impact was fast and widespread, both in Spain and in other Spanish- speaking countries, and quickly became a go-to-first reference for social psychologists in these areas.

With the advent of globalization, the journal’s community (Editorial Team, readers, reviewers, and authors) grew and expanded, including more and more diverse and international researchers. In 2014, FIA and Taylor & Francis started a publishing partnership, taking another leap towards reaching a globalized audience: publishing all articles in both English and Spanish. This allows authors to reach two distinct linguistic audiences by submitting their manuscripts to a single journal.

In 2020 the journal adopted its current English title, International Journal of Social Psychology.

Along with bilingualism, FIA’s deep and lasting commitment to scientific quality, savoir-faire, and rigor, paired with Taylor & Francis’ state-of-the-art publishing services and worldwide reach, have helped bring the journal to the wider international community. It can be read in over two thousand institutions worldwide.
