Global Environmental Psychology

A new online-only, open-access journal committed to open science and diversity

Free of charge for authors and readers

Global Environmental Psychology (GEP) is a peer-reviewed, fully open journal that is published online under the PsychOpen GOLD programme of the Leibniz Institute for Psychology (ZPID). GEP is endorsed by the International Association of People-Environment Studies (IAPS), by the environmental psychology section of the German Psychological Society (DGPs), and the Society for Environmental, Population, & Conservation Psychology (Division 34 of the American Psychological Association).
