An excellent resource for researchers as well as students, Social Cognition features reports on self-perception, self-concept, social neuroscience, person-memory integration, social schemata, the development of social cognition, and the role of affect in memory and perception.

Special topics have included Social Cognition and Health, Intersectional and Dynamic Social Categories, The Status of Status: Vistas from Social Cognition, and The Psychological Legacy of Barack Obama.

“This significant journal is one of the most prominent places where ideas in social psychology and cognitive psychology are brought together in truly creative ways.”

—Elizabeth Loftus, PhD

“Over many years Social Cognition has provided a compelling complement to other leading journals in social and personality psychology. Known for publishing provocative and innovative contributions that both advance the field and uphold a high standard of empirical rigor, Social Cognition plays an invaluable role in our science.”
