Emotion Review is a peer reviewed, scholarly journal produced by the Boston College Psychology Department and published by SAGE in association with the International Society for Research on Emotion (ISRE).

The journal aims to publish a combination of theoretical, conceptual, and review papers—often with commentaries—to enhance debate about critical issues in emotion theory and research. Emotion Review publishes work across a wide interdisciplinary field of research that traverses many disciplines. In this respect, the journal is open to publishing work in anthropology, biology, computer science, economics, history, humanities, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, physiology, political science, psychiatry, psychology, sociology, and in other areas where emotion research is active.
