‘Affective Science’ Mission Statement

Affective Science is the flagship journal of the Society for Affective Science. Affective Science is published by Springer, and covers the field of affective science in a broad manner, encompassing different disciplines, biological and behavioral methodologies, human and non-human animal models, and healthy and patient populations.

The journal recognizes the central role that affective processes (including but not limited to emotions, stress, evaluations, motivation) play in the lives of individuals, groups, cultures, and countries, and their profound implications for health and well-being.

Affective Science provides a forum for both basic and applied research. It primarily publishes full-length and brief reports of original research but also publishes methodological, review, and theoretical articles.
