Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI)

Division 9: Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) welcomes psychologists and allied social scientists who share a common concern with research on psychological aspects of important social issues and social subjects to bring theory and practice into focus on human problems of the group, the community, and the nation, and the increasingly important problems that have no national boundaries. The quarterly Journal of Social Issues and the SPSSI Newsletter, published three times a year, are SPSSI's official publications.
