Emotion Review is a fully peer-reviewed scholarly journal. It adheres to a blinded peer-review process in which the reviewer’s name is routinely withheld from the author unless the reviewer requests a preference for their identity to be revealed. All manuscripts are reviewed initially by the Editors and only those papers that meet the scientific and editorial standards of the journal, and fit within the aims and scope of the journal, will be sent for outside review.
Emotion Review focuses on ideas about emotion, with “emotion” broadly defined. The Review publishes articles presenting new theories, offering conceptual analyses, reviewing the literature, and debating and critiquing conceptual issues. It publishes reports of empirical studies and method only when they make a substantial theoretical contribution.
Emotion Review invites the submission of articles from researchers in any discipline. These disciplines include, but are not limited to, anthropology, biology, computer science, economics, history, humanities, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, physiology, political science, psychiatry, psychology, and sociology. Emotion Review also invites the submission of commentaries on previously published articles. Both original articles and commentaries on previous articles are treated as manuscripts and submitted in the same manner. All submissions are reviewed with respect to their scholarly merit.
Emotion Review invites articles from the entire international community. We encourage authors to make their articles as accessible as possible to a wide audience of fellow emotion researchers from other disciplines.
