Social Psychology Network:
Building Bridges Across the International Community
Social Psychology Network (SPN) links Asia to the rest of the world, building bridges across the international community of social psychologists and facilitating scholarly communication and exchange. Its global network for research and education provides a timely and efficient means to access information on social and cultural psychology, offering an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and researchers around the world. Indeed, a Google search for the phrase "cultural psychology" currently ranks Social Psychology Network as the top web site worldwide.
For those of us in Asia, SPN has given us the opportunity to share information about our professional association, the Asian Association of Social Psychology, and our journal, the Asian Journal of Social Psychology. The Network also features prominent psychologists in our region, including professional profiles of scholars from countries such as Japan, Korea, India, China, and the Philippines, and it contains hundreds of additional web links related to Asia and Asian psychology.
Just as SPN helps us introduce Asian social psychology to the rest of the world, it gives us access to vast international resources on psychological research and teaching in the Americas, Europe, and Oceania. On a typical day, SPN is used by people from more than 90 countries, making it one of the most international and multicultural repositories of psychological information in the world.
The Asian Association of Social Psychology is pleased to endorse SPN, and we heartily call upon our members and others to join the Network and support its development to the greatest extent possible.
