The European Journal of Personality (EJP) is an official journal of the European Association of Personality Psychology, and is published by SAGE. The Journal promotes the development of empirical and theoretical personality psychology by reporting and reviewing original research, theoretical issues, methodological advances and current experience.
Personality psychology aims to provide an integrative understanding of human nature, individual differences between persons, and the psychological structures and dynamics that characterise the individual as a whole. EJP publishes papers that advance personality psychology in its broadest sense. We consider all research fields relevant to the understanding of personality and individual differences, including but not limited to:
- the nature of personality (e.g., personality structure; biological, motivational, cognitive, perceptual, and affective personality processes)
- expressions of personality in social contexts (e.g., person-situation interactions; within-person variability; behaviour in everyday life; personality and interpersonal perceptions; dyadic, intragroup, and intergroup processes)
- personality development (e.g., cultural, societal, interpersonal, and genetic determinants; personality stabilisation and change across the lifespan)
- and the consequences of personality (e.g., social, educational, occupational, well-being, and health-related outcomes)
