  • Call for Papers: Emotional Expression Beyond the Face

    This special issue invites empirical and theoretical papers that advance our understanding of how emotions are expressed through other channels of nonverbal communication such as body posture, gesture, odor, spacing, and paralinguistic cues. We welcome papers from social psychologists, communication researchers, anthropologists, comparative psychologists, and others with an eye toward integrating disparate literatures on this interesting topic.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
