Consumer Psychology Review

The Society for Consumer Psychology is pleased to announce the founding of a new scientific journal, the Consumer Psychology Review.

Society Goals for Consumer Psychology Review
The Society’s goals for the journal are to 1) increase the visibility of current research in consumer psychology, 2) provide a convenient, recurring research reference for consumer psychologists, and 3) highlight the programmatic nature of the latest research.

Editorial Mission and Scope
The mission of the Consumer Psychology Review is to provide systematic and periodic examinations of scholarly advances in consumer psychology through critical authoritative reviews. The general mission is modeled on Annual Reviews of Psychology, which is the most highly cited publication in psychology. The editorial team will determine review topics and invite leading authorities to serve as authors, which will then undergo peer review. A typical article would provide a short context of the area (e.g., brief review of dominant theories), followed by a review of the latest research in the area, and ending with future directions and unanswered questions.

Volume Specifications
The Consumer Psychology Review will be an annual publication with a single issue per year. The target publication date for the first issue is January 2018. It will be published on paper and electronically. Articles will be posted on-line as soon as they are accepted. The average length for an article will be 25 print pages. The initial number of articles per annual volume is expected to be 6-12.

Editing Structure and Administration
The Editor(s) will serve for a fixed 3-year term and will be supported by a Scientific Advisory Committee. The Scientific Advisory Committee will assist the Editor(s) in choosing topics for the annual volumes. Members will be chosen who have clear expertise in consumer psychology or the theoretical domains central to consumer psychology. Articles will be invited based on the expertise and productivity of the author(s) in each topic area.

Editor and Scientific Advisory Committee Members
The inaugural Editor and Scientific Advisory Committee for the Consumer Psychology Review are:
