About the PSI Network

PSI was launched for one reason—to connect researchers from different fields who share a common interest in power, status, and influence. These three topics have long captured the attention of academic scholars and continue to inspire empirical work across many disciplines (e.g., psychology, sociology, and biology). Much of this work examines the cognitive and social psychology of power and status dynamics present in diverse populations, ranging from investment bankers to Capuchin monkeys. Taken together, the insights drawn from this body of research are fundamental and its implications are far-reaching.

The open access journal Information is calling for submissions to a Special Issue on “Social Influence” (submissions due March 2020). People who meet together or communicate over the Internet or other channels constantly exchange information, rumors, spread opinions and attitudes. Be it a personal exchange or the beginning of a massive societal shift, these processes begin with someone becoming influenced or influencing others.


The Special Issue aims to promote cross-domain knowledge exchange researchers interested in the phenomenon of social influence and information spreading in networks. It will aim to present the state of the art research in this area from different perspectives: sociology, computer science, psychology, as well as mathematics and physics. Information publishes papers on broad topics relating to information science and technology, data, knowledge, and communication.
