Our Embargo Policy

The Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) operates on a fluid embargo system.  Studies publishing in our journals Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin (PSPB), Personality and Social Psychology Review (PSPR) and co-sponsored journal Social Psychological and Personality Science (SPPS) are under embargo until they are published online or in print, whichever occurs first.  Studies accepted to publish in these journals that are open access, have online pre-publication copies, or are otherwise accessible and publicly available online ahead of final publication, are not subject to embargo. 

We encourage reporters to work from final copies of studies, as details may change as papers go through revision.
