Social Cognition seeks to advance understanding of the role of cognitive processes in social psychology and behavior. The journal emphasizes three broad concerns:
  • the processes underlying the perception, judgment, and memory of social stimuli;
  • the effects of social and affective factors on the processing of information;
  • and the behavioral and interpersonal consequences of cognitive processes.
An excellent resource for researchers as well as students, Social Cognition features reports on self-perception, self-concept, social neuroscience, person-memory integration, social schemata, the development of social cognition, and the role of affect in memory and perception.
