Environmental Psychology Open (EPO) is a scientific online journal covering the entire spectrum of environmental psychology. It aims to make psychological knowledge visible and usable for sustainable improvements of the living environment. Inter- and transdisciplinary contributions and case studies are welcome, as are contributions by student researchers. Contributions can be submitted in German or English and will be published online continuously.

EPO is open in several ways: with Diamond Open Access, with open peer review, and with open science formats such as registered reports.

EPO has evolved from the more than 25-year history of the Zeitschrift Umweltpsychologie. Older articles (until 2023) can be obtained via the publisher Pabst-Verlag.

EPO is endorsed by the Environmental Psychology section (Fachgruppe Umweltpsychologie) of the German Psychological Society (DGPs).
