Psychological Research on Urban Society is an international journal dedicated on urban society topics. Our intended audience are scholars and practitioners who interested in urban issues, without any limitation. PRoUSt will be committed to open science practices and believe in open science framework, where all people can have access to knowledge he/she desired without any barriers.
Aim and Scope

Psychological Research on Urban Society (PRoUSt) accepts articles on human behavior in urban context. We aim to become an intellectual forum for researchers of urban issues in the fields of Psychology and allied scholarly disciplines. This journal accepts theoretical and empirical research in the form of academic papers, policy reviews, and book review that potentially contribute to become the reference for human behavioral science and intervention in urban society.

The journal welcomes excellent empirical and theoretical contributions to applied research related to the psychology of urban issues. Reviews are also welcome, as are replications of previous research. Articles deal with all fields on urban society, such as urban mental health and well-being, educational and child development in urban society, intergroup relation, acculturation, and identity formation in urban contexts, urban social issues (e.g., poverty, traffic, crime and violence), urban culture, and urban issues on employment and organizational behavior. As these topics are closely related to issues in other disciplines, this journal is open to contributions of an interdisciplinary nature.

The readership of PRoUSt Journal consists of academics and practitioners; thus it is suggested that all authors consider these diverse audiences into their writing. Authors of theoretical or highly empirical papers are encouraged to communicate practical implications of their studies, and authors of practice-oriented papers should clearly elaborate the theoretical approach they are using.
