Social Psychology Network

The Social Psychology Network (SPN) is an educational organization with more than 1,500 members worldwide. SPN was founded by psychology professor Scott Plous as a website in 1996.[1] Development of SPN was supported by several grants from the National Science Foundation. The website includes a large collection of social psychology links, a feed of related news, and discussion forums for students and professionals interested in social psychology.[2]

Affiliated partner sites include the Society of Experimental Social Psychology (; the Society for Personality and Social Psychology; and Research Randomizer (, a web-based tool for random sampling and random assignment).[2]
