Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP) is an outlet for psychological and social science scholarship with implications for social action and policy. Under the guidance of an international editorial board, ASAP serves a global audience that includes policy makers and advocates as well as social scientists, students, and the public at large. Articles are published electronically as soon as they are accepted for publication.

Recent articles in ASAP have examined social psychological methods in the study of economic and social justice including ageism, heterosexism, racism, sexism, status quo bias and other forms of discrimination, social problems such as climate change, extremism, homelessness, inter-group conflict, natural disasters, poverty, and terrorism, and social ideals such as democracy, empowerment, equality, health, and trust. Additionally, ASAP includes reviews of recently published books and other media of interest to SPSSI members and the broader community concerned with policy issues.  

Electronic access to the Journal is available to SPSSI members at not charge (log in required).  Individuals at libraries and member institutions may also access the Journal directly through the website of the publisher, Wiley Blackwell. That website also provides subscription costs and access information for individuals at other institutions and the public at large.
