An election day reminder that we will be putting together a collection of
papers on the *Social Psychology of the 2012 US Presidential Election*.
This collection will be the third in *ASAP's* series on American
Presidential elections, continuing a tradition that began with our
collection on the 2004 <http://bit.ly/ASAP2004USelection> election and
continued with the 2008 <http://bit.ly/ASAP2008USelection> campaign. The
deadline is in March; details are provided in the attached flyer. Thanks

Call for Papers

The Social Psychology of the 2012 US Presidential Election Analyses of
Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP), a journal of the Society for the
Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), is issuing a Call for Papers
on the Social Psychology of the 2012 US Presidential
Election. This collection will be the third in ASAP's series on American
Presidential elections, continuing a tradition that began with our
collection on the 2004  election and continued with the 2008 campaign.

Submissions should be short papers of 10-35 double-spaced manuscript pages
including references.

Potential areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

-  Studies of candidates, including content or other analyses of political
addresses and debates,
using analytic approaches informed by psychological theory and methods.
-  Studies of the electorate, or parts of the electorate, including studies
of political decision making (e.g., heuristics and biases, functional
accounts of voting vs. not voting) as well as studies of
personality, values, and political ideology.
-  Studies of the roles of implicit as well as explicit racism, sexism,
and/or religious intolerance in
the campaigns, in advertisements sponsored by political action committees
(including Super
PACs), in media coverage of the campaigns, and in voting behavior.
*-  Studies of media effects, including conventional as well as social
media, direct as well as indirect **(e.g., dynamic, viral) effects, and
studies of bias in news, talk radio, and satirical programming*.
-  Studies of policies and programs that affect voter participation,
including those which facilitate
voting as well as those which appear aimed to inhibit or disenfranchise
potential voters.
-  Studies of political culture and identity, as these impact or are
impacted by the election.
-  Comparative analyses and international perspectives on the election.

Inquiries should be sent to Editor Kevin Lanning of Florida Atlantic
University (lanning at fau.edu).   To insure full editorial consideration,
manuscripts should be submitted by March 20, 2013 at
http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/asap.

ASAP will be ranked for scholarly impact by ISI/Thomson Reuters beginning
with the 2012 volume. Until that rating is published, the best available
index of quality for the Journal is the SCIMAGO bibliometric database
compiled by Elsevier, in which ASAP is ranked in the top 15% (48/372) of
journals in its category (http://bit.ly/ASAPImpactFactor).
