New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Association for Psychological Science

The Association for Psychological Science (APS), founded in 1988, seeks to “promote, protect, and advance the interests of scientifically oriented psychology in research, application, teaching, and the improvement of human welfare.” This website takes a step toward that goal. Start with the homepage, where you can find a list of links to Psychological Science in the News, featuring up to date coverage of psychology research in such news outlets as the New York Times, ABC News, and many others. Also check out recent issues of Observer, the association’s magazine, with articles about the latest scientific psychology. If you’re interested in the science of psychology, this site will provide hours of learning and fun. Educators, especially, will find much to digest in the Teaching section, replete with APS Blogs by Wray Herbert and Teaching Tips.
