ARP Journals

The official journal of ARP is the Journal of Research in Personality (JRP). All ARP members receive a subscription to JRP. ARP also co-sponsors the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science (SPPS) with several other scientific associations, and electronic access to this journal is a further benefit of ARP membership. To join ARP, please visit our membership page.

Journal of Research in Personality

You can change your address and means of delivery for JRP by updating your ARP membership information. Signing up for electronic-only delivery is good for ARP and good for the environment. Once you have signed up for electronic delivery, you can then register with Elsevier ScienceDirect. (Complete instructions are available here.) After completing the ScienceDirect registration process, you can access JRP articles here, and you will receive email notifications when new articles are available online.

Social Psychological and Personality Science

You can access SPPS articles online by logging in here. You can also sign up to receive email alerts when new issues appear. NOTE: Do not click on the “subscribe” tab because as a member you are already subscribed.
