OnFiction is a magazine with the aim of developing the psychology of fiction. Using theoretical and empirical perspectives, we endeavour to understand how fiction is created, and how readers and audience members engage in it.
Articles are added once a week, and we maintain archives of academic papers, magazine articles, film and book reviews, original fiction, as well as annotated lists of psychologically significant works of fiction and books on the psychology of fiction.
Researchers please consider joining the International Society for Empirical Research on Literature (IGEL, acronym for the name of this Society in German) and contributing to the Society's journal, Scientific Study of Literature. The next IGEL conference will be in Torino, Italy, in 2014.
