PsychSource is your gateway to exploring and using the crucial research published across the British Psychological Society’s 11 journals and extensive books programme, as well as in 32 other key psychology journals, together with multimedia resources.
In addition to being fully searchable (see 'Searching Tips', below), some material is coveniently brought together in 'Collections' – edited selections of content on a single topic. These may be either 'virtual issues' of a single BPS journal title drawing on articles from current and earlier volumes of that journal, or groupings from the entire range of PsychSource content (books, journals and multimedia).
The site also offers a convenient access point to other Society resources supporting research, teaching and practice – The Psycholgist and Digest archives; conference proceedings; archive catalogues, including audio and visual archives; Origins timeline; up-to-date guidelines and policy documents; and much more.
PsychSource is available for everyone to use, but some content is reserved for BPS members.
