 Call for Papers: Special Issue on Dehumanization

Dear Colleagues,

I'm writing to inform you of an opportunity to publish your research on dehumanization for a special issue of Current Research in Ecological and Social Psychology, entitled "Painting an Integrated Portrait of Dehumanization," a primary research, gold open access journal from Elsevier.

The special issue can be seen here:

Dehumanization has figured prominently in many of our age's darkest atrocities and contemporary acts of discrimination and violence. This has inspired sustained scholarly attention, as social scientists have developed an abundance of distinct measures and conceptualizations of dehumanization over the past two decades. The proliferation of measures of dehumanization is both a marker of the success of the field and problematic because the various ways in which dehumanization has been conceptualized have not been integrated into a coherent framework. Therefore, this special issue spotlights work employing a broad array of perspectives and measurement approaches to dehumanization. It aims to integrate these disparate conceptualizations of dehumanization into a coherent framework that sharpens our theoretical understanding of the construct.

All submissions deemed suitable to be sent for peer review will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Preference will be given to empirical manuscripts, but theoretical pieces will also be given full consideration. Once your manuscript is accepted, it will go into production and will be simultaneously published in the current regular issue and pulled into the online Special Issue. There are no submission or publication fees.


The SUBMISSION DEADLINE is 31 October 31, 2022. Information about article formatting and preparation can be found here:

For more information about this special issue, please do not hesitate to email me at

Alexander Landry and Katrina Fincher
