Aims and Scope

The European Journal of Personality is the official journal of the European Association of Personality Psychology, and is published by John Wiley & Sons. The Journal promotes the development of empirical and theoretical personality psychology within Europe and elsewhere, by reporting and reviewing original research, theoretical issues, methodological advances and current experience.

Personality science 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 science in its broadest sense. We consider all research fields relevant to the understanding of personality, including but not restricted to:

  • the nature of personality (personality structure; biological, motivational, cognitive, perceptual, and affective personality processes),

  • expressions of personality in social context (person–situation interaction; within-person variability; behaviour in everyday life; personality and interpersonal perceptions; dyadic, intragroup and intergroup processes),

  • personality development (e.g. cultural, societal, interpersonal, 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).
