Introducing the newest Psychology Journal on the platform
We are excited to announce a new partnership with Social Behavior and Personality: an international journal (SBP). Through this collaboration, we have indexed SBP content in a unique collection on ScienceOpen where it will be featured and placed within the context of over 67 million other scholarly records. The addition of SBP content to the platform brings over 1,000 high-quality psychology publications, with new issues published each month. This partnership is therefore a great asset to humanities and social science content on ScienceOpen.
SBP was founded in 1973 and publishes papers on all aspects of social, personality, and developmental psychology. In the past 47 years, SBP has published the work of over 6,500 researchers and professionals, and the journal’s archive now contains several thousand articles. The journal is indexed in the SSCI with a current impact factor of 0.676 and has a CiteScore of 1.2. SBP has a distinguished Board of Consulting Editors and works with thousands of expert peer reviewers around the globe. A minimum of 12 issues are published each year and the journal is available in the libraries of major universities all over the world!

SBP is publishing COVID-19 research open access as it becomes available, examining the psychological impacts of this rapidly evolving pandemic. They have worked with ScienceOpen to create a Collection specifically highlighting research related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. You can find all articles here in the COVID-19 Research in Social Behavior and Personality Collection.
Get involved with SBP
By being indexed on ScienceOpen, SBP publications are now more discoverable and have the benefit of the interactive network powered by ScienceOpen. If they desire, authors of SBP can make a free account on ScienceOpen and link it to their ORCID which will enable them to claim their publications on ScienceOpen, giving them the power to add lay summaries, keywords, thumbnail image, and more to their publication record’s metadata. Moreover, researchers can apply to become a collection editor on ScienceOpen. This free service allows researchers to make thematic collections which they can use to promote their own research, educate others by collecting top research of their field, highlight a different topic of interest, etc. All researcher-curated collections are deposited at Crossref and receive a DOI making collections trackable and citable. Moreover, SBP content can now easily be shared to social media by ScienceOpen’s diverse base of registered users—metrics which are tracked and updated every 24 hours on the platform. Thus, ScienceOpen provides more opportunities and tools for publishers and authors of SBP, and anyone on the platform for that matter, to track and improve their article’s impact.
Good relationships with our community of SBP supporters, authors, reviewers, subscribers, are a top priority for our team. We promise a prompt and high-quality publication result, incentives for reviewers and author participation.
