Blackwell acquires "Journal of Applied Social Psychology"& adds partnerships.

Blackwell Publishing (Boston, MA) has acquired the "Journal of Applied Social Psychology" (JASP) from Bellwether Publishing (Columbia, MD). No terms of the deal were given.

"JASP" is a monthly journal dedicated to using behavioral science to address complex problems in society. Established in 1971, the publication includes content on laboratory and field research in areas such as health, race relations, discrimination, group processes, population growth, crowding, accelerated cultural change, violence, poverty, environmental stress, helping behavior, effects of the legal system on society and the individual, political participation and extremism, communication, negotiations among nations, socioeconomics, social aspects of drug use, organizational and industrial issues, behavioral medicine and environmental psychology. An annual print/online subscription costs $95 for individuals and $939 for institutions.

Blackwell president Gordon Tibbitts noted that "our goal is to maximize the readership, visibility and scope of this well-established journal" and that journal enhances the company's current portfolio of related psychology titles, including "Journal of Personality," "Personnel Psychology," "Journal of Applied Psychology" and "Psychological Science." Bellwether produces eight other journals, including "International Geology Review," "Physical Geography," "Urban Geography" and "GIScience & Remote Sensing."

Also, Blackwell said that it has begun 2006 with 39 new publishing partnerships and 59 new journal titles. The company now produces 805 medical, academic, scientific and professional journals in partnership with 665 societies.
