About the Journal

ESP aims to explore the connections between the environment and human condition, and enhance the environment protection consciousness and behaviors that are crucial to achieve the goals of sustainable development and human development. With interdisciplinary approaches, integrated theory, research and practice, we pursue to:

1. Examine the possibilities of human and social development and use them as a reliable paradigm to promote peace, prosperity and progress in a complex and changing world;

2. Transcend the contradiction and duality of contemporary ideologies and methods to a united framework of sociopsychological research;

3. Have a viable paradigm, conductive to social development, that stimulates the academic aspiration for the advancement of knowledge and the search of empirical evidence and truth, and supports environment conservation as legitimate;

4. Cure the sociopsychological disorder (beliefs, attitudes, stereotypes, prejudices, old habits and politico-cultural practices ) that thwarts the quality education and learning, while encouraging the contemporary dogmas due to the influence of social behaviors;

5. Sense and find a way for nihilism that incubates psychopathology of self-destructive addictions (sexual abuse, substance and drug use, interpersonal violence and anomic dysfunctions) and breeds mayhem, mass murders and terror.

The research developed a framework to investigate the influence of green consumption value and green buying intentions using the behavioral reasoning theory to look at the gap between attitudes and intentions. A cross-sectional research design was used to collect data from 698 respondents in Ghana. The result shows a positive and significant association between buying green foods and attitudes toward green foods, and motive against buying green foods have a non-significant relationship with attitudes to green foods; there is a positive significant association between green consumption value and attitudes toward green foods, motives for buying green foods, and motives against buying green foods. The mediation of motives for buying green foods on green consumption value and attitudes to green foods is positive. Motives for buying green foods influence green buying intentions through attitudes toward green products. And mediation of motives against buying green foods on green consumption value and attitudes to green foods is negative and does not harm green buying intentions using attitudes to green foods. Governments must reward individuals or groups that protect the environment and also put together educated programs that spell out the consequences of a degraded environment to the nation.

The purpose of this study is to examine customer satisfaction of halal restaurants that have received halal certification from the Korea Muslim Federation (KMF). A total of 1,544 reviews from 11 halal-certified restaurants in South Korea were collected from Google reviews using SCTM 3.0 (Smart Crawling and Text Mining). UCINET 6.0 is used to analyze the network centrality and perform CONCOR analysis. This study quantitatively identified the relationship among five dimensions: halal cuisine, Islamic dining, food menu, service and value. However, Islamic dining, service, and value were positively impacted to customer satisfaction. This study indicates that the Halal label is a significant factor in the dining preferences of halal restaurant customers in South Korea. The results of this study may be useful in marketing halal restaurants in South Korea which have not applied for halal certification from the Korea Muslim Federation.

Today, the ultimate approach of an organization in any society is to attract as many beneficiaries as possible. Due to the nature-oriented development of their rural communities, they have to satisfy their interest groups more than other communities. When it comes to rural development in Iran, there are many credible organizations that directly and indirectly engage with the target community. The absence of organizational tasks leads to failure in achieving predetermined goals. Allen and Meyer’s standard organizational commitment questionnaire was used as a data collection tool. Descriptive statistical measures such as focus and dispersion indices were used to analyze the results. Inferential statistical measures such as the mean difference comparison test and the correlation coefficient were also used. The results showed that the level of organizational commitment among employees of Jihad-e-Agriculture Organization in Isfahan Province is 55%. The results also showed that the most important factors affecting employees’ organizational commitment were social responsibility, psychological factors and income satisfaction, which could explain up to 50% of employees’ organizational commitment.

In order to investigate the impact of environmental information on the purchase of electric automobiles, the present research applied the Theory of Planned Behavior. Using primary data (n = 214), the proposed research model was validated using covariance-based structural equation modelling. The findings confirmed a positive relationship between attitudes towards electric vehicles and environmental knowledge. It was discovered that purchase intentions and perceived consumer effectiveness were significantly related. Control over availability also has a significant impact on buyers’ intentions. The study’s findings were unable to show a significant indirect relationship between environmental knowledge and purchase intentions. However, in this study, purchase behavior was significantly predicted by individuals’ purchase intentions. In particular, females were found to have stronger buy intentions than their male counterparts when it came to the effects of consumer perceived efficacy and control over availability (significant moderation of gender). The study’s empirical findings had a variety of theoretical and practical ramifications.

Playful learning is an educational method in which students experience fun and curiosity in an active context that is meaningful to them. Game-based learning, serious games, and gamification can be highlighted here. The purpose of this study is to conduct a systematic review of studies that have used gamified resources as a game-based strategy for bullying prevention. For this study, a search of several databases (Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science, and Dialnet) was conducted. 606 studies were collected, of which 12 scientific studies were selected. Playful strategies are effective in identifying and processing different variables related to bullying. The use of playful strategies in the classroom has many benefits and several studies confirm that it is an effective method for raising awareness and preventing bullying.



Congratulations, Environment and Social Psychology has been accepted for Scopus!

Showing you’re stressed may make you more likeable


@Research Fellow, Department of Psychology, Nottingham Trent University.

We readily reveal our inner feelings during moments of weakness. When someone is stressed, they are more likely to show what we call self-directed behaviour.  The more stressed a person reported being, the more stressed others thought they were – a clear linear relationship. Communicating honestly and naturally through your behaviour may in fact leave a positive impression on others.

"The problem is greater than it’s ever been": US universities urged to invest in mental-health resources


Even at a time of great financial strain and uncertainty, universities and colleges across the United States must invest more resources to address a growing mental-health crisis among students, according to a report from the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. “The problem is as great or greater than it’s ever been, and it’s not getting better,” says Alan Leshner, who chaired the committee behind the report and is chief executive emeritus of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. “Unless there’s concerted attention, it will get substantially worse, because the pressures are not going away.”

The report from the National Academies carries no legal weight, and the response from colleges and universities remains to be seen.
