Free of charge for authors and readers


Global Environmental Psychology (GEP) is a peer-reviewed, fully open journal publishing theory-focussed and applied work on the relationship between people and the environment with a psychological emphasis. Environment is understood in a broad sense and includes natural, built, and virtual environments. GEP welcomes research on environmentally impactful behaviours and behavioural drivers (e.g. attitudes, norms, values, identities, abilities, context), on how environments affect people (e.g., performance, behaviour and well-being), and on the interdependence between humans and the environment (e.g., place attachment, connectedness to nature).

GEP strives to increase diversity in psychological research by publishing high-quality work from different theoretical, methodological (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods), and cultural perspectives. The journal is keen to publish cross-cultural research, and research involving non-WEIRD (Western, educated, industrialized, rich, and democratic; Henrich et al., 2010) samples, including work from authors from the Global South. The journal is committed to advancing reproducible, transparent, and open science. Measures to achieve this include the publication of replication studies and registered reports and the adherence to the transparency and open science guidelines of the journal for empirical articles.”
