Call for papers: social image

Call for Manuscripts for a Special Issue of The European Journal of Social Psychology on “Social Image”

Social image is our image in the eyes of others. It refers to how much others value and respect us. Different perspectives in social psychology have examined the way in which the threat or the affirmation of social image affects emotions, interpersonal relations, and intergroup relations. These perspectives, however, rarely use the term social image to refer to the object of their study. Instead, a variety of terminologies are used to refer to social image, including reputation, stereotypes, public self-regard, face, persona, or honor.
The European Journal of Social Psychology will publish a special issue that aims to integrate a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives on social image. The Special Issue will be guest-edited by Patricia M. Rodriguez Mosquera (Wesleyan University, U.S.A.), Ayse Uskul (University of Essex, U.K.) and Susan Cross (Iowa State University, U.S.A.).
We cordially invite submissions from researchers that study social image in relation to emotional processes (e.g., emotions that are evoked from our perceptions of how others think of us), interpersonal relations (e.g., the strategies we use to manage the impressions others have of us), intergroup relations (e.g., responses to the devaluation of one’s group’s social image), and culture (e.g., honor). The special issue seeks a balance of empirical papers and conceptual reviews.

Important dates for manuscript submission:

May 15th, 2010: Letter of intent deadline.
June 30th, 2010: Paper submission deadline.
September 30th, 2010: Provisional acceptance of papers
December 1st, 2010: Revised final manuscript due date.

Authors who plan to submit manuscripts are asked to submit a letter of intent emailed to Patricia M. Rodriguez Mosquera ( by May 15, 2010 that includes: a) a tentative manuscript title, b) names and affiliations of all authors, c) contact information for corresponding author, and d) a brief description of the manuscript content (up to 600 words). Authors who do not submit letters of intent may still submit manuscripts (no later than June 30th, 2010), but these will be considered for the special issue only as space and time allow.

Original research papers should be no longer than 10,000 words (including abstract, tables, figures, and references) in line with research articles in regular issues. All manuscripts should be prepared in accordance to the editorial guidelines of EJSP (see instructions to authors) and should be submitted via the Manuscript Central online submission site:

Please indicate that the paper is to be considered as a contribution to the special issue. All papers will be peer-reviewed. For further inquiries, please contact Patricia M. Rodriguez Mosquera at
