Understanding the psychological aspects of national and international political developments is increasingly important in this age of international tension and sweeping political change. Political Psychology, the journal of the International Society of Political Psychology, is dedicated to the analysis of the interrelationships between psychological and political processes. International contributors draw on a diverse range of sources, including cognitive psychology, political science, economics, history, international relations, philosophy, political theory, sociology, and social and clinical psychology.

It is ranked 22nd of the 182 journals in the Political Science category (22nd for 5-year, as well), and 12th of 64 journals in the Social Psychology category (9th for 5-year). Political Psychology is in over 4,000 institutions worldwide, and its published manuscripts are downloaded hundreds of thousands of times each year.
