Where can I find a listing of journals in Social and Personality psychology?


What are considered the TOP journals in Social/Personality psychology?

  1. Journals that are designed for broad multidisciplinary appeal to all areas of psychology, and
  2. Journals that specifically target Social/Personality psychology.
  3. Keep in mind the there is substantial agreement about what the very top journals in the field are, but because judging journal prestige is highly subjective, there is very little agreement about which journals are in the "good", "fair" and "poor" ranges.
