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). It publishes theoretical and applied work on the relationship between people and their 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. perceptions, attitudes, norms, values, identities, abilities, context), on how environments affect people (e.g., performance, behaviour, emotions and well-being), and on the interdependence between humans and the environment (e.g., place attachment, connectedness to nature).

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.

GEP strives to increase diversity in psychological research and to make our field more representative of different human groups. As such, the journal is keen to publish work that makes currently underrepresented authors and populations in environmental psychology visible (e.g., research from outside northwestern Europe and British-descent societies; research involving indigenous and underrepresented populations such as people living in rural regions or belonging to low income groups). Diversity is also sought in terms of different theoretical and methodological (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods) perspectives.
