Social Influence

An Open Access Journal

Social Influence is converting to Open Access from its 2021 volume.

Social Influence is a journal that provides an integrated focus for research into this important, dynamic, and multi-disciplinary field, and publishes experimental research investigating aspects of social influence. For the past decade, the journal has sought to create a platform for researchers to highlight their contributions about social influence.

The new editor-in-chief, Ilja van Beest, is strongly committed to transparency and advancing debate on novel research questions and forsees the journal thriving as an Open Access title with the benefits that increased readership and visibility will inevitably bring.

As part of this transition, all manuscripts received after 27th August 2020 will proceed through Social Influence's new Open Access submission portal. Authors who submit after this date will be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by an author’s funder or institution. 

Interested authors should visit the Routledge/Taylor & Francis Open Access Members and Open Access Agreements pages in case they are based at an institution that may have funds available to authors wishing to publish in Social Influence. Interested readers may also want to consider signing up to receive latest article alerts to the journal to keep up-to-date with the latest research.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and hope you join us to embrace Social Influence's Open Access future.
