Dear everyone,

The year 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the Asian Journal of Social Psychology. In many ways, the journal is still young and vibrant, but it has already witnessed and withstood a number of major events and crises both in the world broadly and in the psychology community specifically. We believe it is time to take a deep breath and reflect on how far we have come in this 25-year journey. We cordially invite you to join us in the following events and celebrate this journey together. Moving forward, we will aim to make this journal a greater outlet for high-impact research from Asia and other parts of the world. We count on your continued support!


Kim-Pong Tam, Editor-in-chief



In this webinar series, two of our former editors-in-chief of the journal will share their personal journey as an Asian social psychologist, stories with the journal, and views on the developments of Asian social psychology.

AJSP Editors Podcast: Special Episode

This episode of the AJSP Editors Podcast is a special episode for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of AJSP! We dedicated the whole episode to “culture,” which has been the most widely researched topic among AJSP publications. In the Editors’ Pick section, we illustrated the strong presence of culture-related research in our journal by discussing several articles in the September issue and the December issue each. After that, we had two separate stimulating conversations with our special guests, first with Takeshi Hamamura about cultural change, and then with Takahiko Masuda about culture and cognition. Enjoy listening!
