Is liberal bias universal? An international perspective on social psychologists

Bilewicz, Michal, Cichocka, Aleksandra, Górska, P., Szabó, Z.P. (2015) Is liberal bias universal? An international perspective on social psychologists. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 38 (e134). ISSN 0140-525X. E-ISSN 1469-1825. (doi:10.1017/S0140525X14001125)


Based on our comparison of political orientation and research interests of social psychologists in capitalist Western countries versus post-Communist Eastern European countries, we suggest that Duarte and colleagues' claim of liberal bias in the field seems American-centric. We propose an alternative account of political biases which focuses on the academic tendency to explain attitudes of lower status groups.
