ARP Journals

Currently, the official journal of ARP is the Journal of Research in Personality (JRP). Through 2017, ARP members who place a request with the Executive Officer will receive online access to JRP; contact Rebecca Shiner directly to request access if you joined as a member after March 2017. 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.
