European Journal of Personality


eISSN: 10990984 | ISSN: 08902070 | Current volume: 35 | Current issue: 5
European Journal of Personality publishes a diverse range of empirical, review, theoretical, and methodological articles that are consistent with its aims and scope and meet its Evaluation Criteria. Most notable topics covered in the Journal include the structure, assessment, causes and consequences of personality differences between people, variability and developmental changes within individuals and the interactions of these with experiences. Studies on the applications of personality science in other fields or for practical purposes are also welcome.

The European Journal of Personality is an official journal of the European Association of Personality Psychology. It aims to advance empirical and theoretical personality psychology, within Europe and elsewhere, by publishing original research, meta-analyses and reviews of existing research, theoretical discussions and methodological advances.

Personality psychology aims to provide an integrative understanding of individual differences between persons as well as the psychological structures and dynamics that characterise the individual as a whole.

Accordingly, European Journal of Personality publishes personality research in its broadest sense, including but not restricted to topics such as the structure, causes and consequences of individual differences, and short-term variability and developmental changes within individuals alongside their interactions with social and non-social experiences.

Besides accepting regular submissions, European Journal of Personality takes a proactive approach to advancing personality science by publishing invited articles, commentary and special issues.

With its long-standing legacy, rigorous editorial policy and strict adherence to open science standards, European Journal of Personality is a premium outlet for the field of personality research.

    1. What do we publish?

    European Journal of Personality publishes a diverse range of empirical, review, theoretical, and methodological articles that are consistent with its Aims and Scope and meet its Evaluation Criteria. Most notable topics covered in the Journal include the structure, assessment, causes and consequences of personality differences between people, variability and developmental changes within individuals and the interactions of these with experiences. Studies on the applications of personality science in other fields or for practical purposes are also welcome.

    1.1 Aims & Scope

    The European Journal of Personality is an official journal of the European Association of Personality Psychology. It aims to advance empirical and theoretical personality psychology, within Europe and elsewhere, by publishing original research, meta-analyses and reviews of existing research, theoretical discussions and methodological advances.

    Personality psychology aims to provide an integrative understanding of individual differences between persons as well as the psychological structures and dynamics that characterise the individual as a whole.

    Accordingly, European Journal of Personality publishes personality research in its broadest sense, including but not restricted to topics such as the structure, causes and consequences of individual differences, and short-term variability and developmental changes within individuals alongside their interactions with social and non-social experiences.

    Besides accepting regular submissions, European Journal of Personality takes a proactive approach to advancing personality science by publishing invited articles, commentary and special issues.

    With its long-standing legacy, rigorous editorial policy and strict adherence to open science standards, European Journal of Personality is a premium outlet for the field of personality research.

     

    1.2 Article Types

    European Journal of Personality accepts the following article types:

    • Empirical and non-empirical papers

    These include original empirical research articles, meta-analyses, reviews and theoretical articles on any topic related to personality research and its applications, as long as they are consistent with the Aims and Scope of the Journal, meet its Evaluation Criteria and comply with its Open Science Policy. The articles do not have a word limit, allowing authors to provide a) a thorough rationale for their research, b) transparently describe their analyses and results, and c) thoughtfully discuss their findings and the implications of these. However, papers are expected to be no longer than absolutely necessary for achieving these aims and editors will ask excessive parts of the text to be shortened, moved to Supplemental Material, or removed. Typically, the Journal does not publish articles about the development and validation of assessment tools or associations between psychological constructs observed in cross-sectional self-report data, including factor analyses of self-report data. Papers on specific clinical phenomena without broader relevance for personality are also not considered.

    • Registered Reports:

    These are a special form of empirical articles in which the rationale, methods and analyses of the proposed article are preregistered and reviewed prior to data collection and statistical analyses; only if and when these are accepted by the Journal, authors are asked to proceed with their work. The rest of the manuscript will be reviewed later as a revision of the initial submission. Initial submissions will include a description of the theoretical and empirical background alongside the main research questions and hypotheses (essentially the introductory section of the planned article), and a detailed Methods section that outlines planned procedures, measures, sampling strategies and statistical analysis, and describes findings based on pilot data (if applicable). For more information, please see here.

    • Target Articles:

    These are theoretical articles that review the state of art in a key topic of personality science, initiate new lines of research and theory, provide a coherent framework for existing theory and areas of research, or discuss key or controversial issues that have important consequences for personality research or its applications. For proposing a target article, please contact the editor René Mõttus (ejp.eic@gmail.com).

    Before preparing your manuscript, please consult the Evaluation Criteria used by the editors and reviewers as well as the Journal’s Open Science Policy.

    Formatting guidelines for all manuscripts:

    • In the main document, the title page should only include the title of the paper without any information about authors’ names or affiliations. However, a separate document including the names and affiliations of all authors should be uploaded as “Title Page”; this separate document should also include the full address and email of the corresponding author, the name(s) of funders along with grant number(s), declaration of any conflict of interest, and other acknowledgements, if applicable.
    • Include an abstract of up to 200 words. This is a concise summary of the whole paper, including the methods and conclusions, and should be understandable without having read the rest of the paper. It should not contain citations.
    • Include three to five keywords.
    • In the main text, the Journal encourages authors to be as succinct as possible and yet as detailed as necessary. There is no word limit for manuscripts, but use Supplemental Material for any non-essential details of the materials, data, analyses, and results (see below).
    • Where appropriate, use sub-headings to structure the Introduction, Method, Results, and Discussion parts of of the manuscript.
    • Embed the Tables and Figures in the manuscript (see also here).
    • It is not necessary to double-space the text. 

    1.3 Writing your paper

    The SAGE Author Gateway has some general advice and on how to get published, plus links to further resources.

    2. Editorial policies

    2.1 Open Science Policy

    European Journal of Personality has signed the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP)-Guidelines (see https://osf.io/9f6gx/) and open science is a key part of the Journal’s identity. For Journal’s current TOP score, see topfactor.org. During submission, authors have to confirm how their manuscript complies with open science standards.

    European Journal of Personality allows variability in how authors address the open science standards, but it asks for transparency about their choices. This policy accommodates circumstances that do not allow authors to meet all of the standards. However, editors give credit to (empirical) submissions that comply with them and do not accept articles that fail to provide an explanation for why the standards cannot be met.

    Material, data and analysis scripts are generally considered “open” if the paper includes a URL to an openly accessible file stored at a permanent public repository (such as the Open Science Framework; OSF). Therefore, all manuscripts must have a Data Accessibility Statement after the Discussion (before References) that states where materials, data and scripts can be accessed (or why they cannot be accessed), preferably with direct URL(s). Simply noting that other researchers can request material is not considered “open”. For example, the statement could read: “The study materials, data and analysis scripts used for this article can be accessed at [a permanent and openly accessible URL].”

    During submission, authors are invited to apply for Open Science Badges (Open material, Open data, Preregistered). The badges are assigned based on how the paper complies with the open science standards.

    2.2 Peer review policy

    European Journal of Personality operates a blinded peer review process in which the reviewers’ and authors' names are withheld from each other. The reviewer may, at their own discretion, opt to reveal their name to the author in their review but our default policy is for both identities to remain concealed.

    The Journal does not use author-suggested reviewers.

    European Journal of Personality has partnered with Publons, a third-party service that tracks, verifies and gives credit for peer review. Reviewers can opt in to Publons to claim their reviews or have them automatically verified and added to their reviewer profile. Reviewers who claim credit for their review will be associated with the Journal, but the article name, reviewer’s recommendation and the content of their review is not published on the site. For more information visit the Publons website.

    The editor or members of the editorial board may occasionally submit their own manuscripts for possible publication in the Journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by alternative members of the board and the submitting editor/board member will have no involvement in the decision-making process.

    2.3 Streamlined review

    European Journal of Personality allows authors to ask for a streamlined review and deals with it within the regular submission system. Authors can request streamlined during the submission process and in the cover letter, indicating the name the journal that originally rejected the manuscript. As Supplemental Material, authors should also upload copies of the original (i.e., unaltered) decision letter and reviews along with a document describing their responses to these comments. Editors will take this information into account, but are not bound by it. If the previous decision letter, reviews and the authors’ responses to these allow editors to make a decision without or with a smaller number of reviews, they will do so.

    2.4 Authorship

    All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an acknowledgements section (in the Title Page uploaded as a separate document). They may include a person who provided purely technical help, someone who read and commented on the manuscript or a department chair who provided only general support.

    2.4.1 Third party submissions

    Where an individual who is not listed as an author submits a manuscript on behalf of the author(s), a statement must be included in the acknowledgements section of the manuscript and in the accompanying cover letter. The statements must:

    • Disclose this type of editorial assistance, including the individual’s name, company and level of input
    • Identify any entities that paid for this assistance
    • Confirm that the listed authors have authorized the submission of their manuscript via third party and approved any statements or declarations such as conflicting interests or funding.

    Where appropriate, SAGE reserves the right to deny consideration to manuscripts submitted by a third party rather than by the authors themselves.

    2.5 Funding

    European Journal of Personality requires all authors to acknowledge their funding on the title page that is uploaded as a separate document, as well as during the submission. Please visit the Funding Acknowledgements page on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway to confirm the format of the acknowledgment text in the event of funding, or state that: This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

    2.6 Declaration of conflicting interests

    European Journal of Personality  requires authors to declare any conflicting interests during the submission. For this, authors may review the good practice guidelines on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.

    2.7 Research ethics

    If your research includes human or animal subjects, include an ethics statement in the Participants section of the article (e.g., reference to the approval of the research by an Institutional Review Board).

    2. Publishing Policies

    3.1 Publication Ethics

    SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway.

    3.1.1 Plagiarism

    European Journal of Personality and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the Journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked with duplication-checking software. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarized other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author's institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.

    3.1.2 Prior publication

    If material has been previously published it is not generally acceptable for publication in a SAGE journal. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be considered for publication. Please refer to the guidance on the SAGE Author Gateway or if in doubt, contact the editor at the address given below.

     

    3.2 Contributor's publishing agreement

    Before publication, SAGE requires the author as the rights holder to sign a Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement. SAGE’s Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement is an exclusive licence agreement which means that the author retains copyright in the work but grants the European Association of Personality Psychology the sole and exclusive right and licence to publish for the full legal term of copyright. Exceptions may exist where an assignment of copyright is required or preferred by a proprietor other than SAGE. In this case copyright in the work will be assigned from the author to the society. For more information please visit the SAGE Author Gateway.

    3.3 Open access and author archiving

    If an article is accepted for publication, the author may re-use their work according to the Journal's author archiving policy. For information on funding body compliance, and depositing your article in repositories, please visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.

    European Journal of Personality offers optional open access publishing via the SAGE Choice programme.  Members of EAPP are entitled to a 20% discount off the SAGE Choice fee. For more information please visit the SAGE Choice website.

    5.1 ORCID

    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

    The collection of ORCID IDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this Journal. If you already have an ORCID ID you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID ID will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID ID is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

    If you do not already have an ORCID ID please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.

    5.2 Information required for completing your submission

    You will be asked to provide contact details and academic affiliations for all co-authors via the submission system and identify who is to be the corresponding author. These details must match what appears on your manuscript. The affiliation listed in the manuscript should be the institution where the research was conducted. If an author has moved to a new institution since completing the research, the new affiliation can be included in a manuscript note at the end of the paper. At this stage please ensure you have included all the required statements and declarations and uploaded any additional supplementary files (including reporting guidelines where relevant).

    5.3 Permissions

    When submitting your work, you have to warrant that this is your original work, that you have the rights to it, that you have obtained and can supply all necessary permissions for the reproduction of any copyright works not owned by you, that you are submitting the work for first publication in the Journal and that the work is not being considered for publication elsewhere and has not already been published elsewhere, except for pre-print servers.

    Please also ensure that you have obtained any necessary permission from copyright holders for reproducing any illustrations, tables, figures or lengthy quotations previously published elsewhere. For further information including guidance on fair dealing for criticism and review, please see the Copyright and Permissions page on the SAGE Author Gateway.

    7. Further information

    Any correspondence, queries or additional requests for information on the manuscript submission process should be sent to the European Journal of Personality editor René Mõttus (eip.eic@gmail.com).

    7.1 Appealing the publication decision

    Editors have very broad discretion in determining whether an article is an appropriate fit for their journal. Many manuscripts are declined with a very general statement of the rejection decision. These decisions are not eligible for formal appeal unless the author believes the decision to reject the manuscript was based on an error in the review of the article, in which case the author may appeal the decision by providing the editor with a detailed written description of the error they believe occurred.

    If an author believes the decision regarding their manuscript was affected by a publication ethics breach, the author may contact the publisher with a detailed written description of their concern, and information supporting the concern, at publication_ethics@sagepub.com
