Aims & Scope

The Journal of Environmental Psychology serves individuals in a wide range of disciplines who have an interest in the scientific study of the transactions and interrelationships between people and their physical surroundings (including built and natural environments, the use and abuse of nature and natural resources, and sustainability-related behavior). The journal publishes internationally contributed empirical studies and reviews of research on these topics that include new insights.

As an important forum for the field, the journal reflects the scientific development and maturation of environmental psychology. Contributions on theoretical, methodological, and practical aspects of human-environment interactions are welcome, along with innovative or interdisciplinary approaches that have a psychological emphasis.

Research Areas Include:
• Perception and evaluation of buildings and natural landscapes
• Cognitive mapping, spatial cognition and wayfinding
• Ecological consequences of human actions
• Evaluation of building and natural landscapes
• Design of, and experiences related to, the physical aspects of workplaces, schools, residences, public buildings and public spaces
• Leisure and tourism behavior in relation to their physical settings
• Meaning of built forms
• Psychological and behavioral aspects of people and nature
• Theories of place, place attachment, and place identity
• Psychological aspects of resource management and crises
• Environmental risks and hazards: perception, behavior, and management
• Stress related to physical settings
• Social use of space: crowding, privacy, territoriality, personal space
