Society Information

The British Psychological Society is the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK.

The Journals of the British Psychological Society form an essential part of the Society's mission to advance and disseminate psychological knowledge. With a publishing history spanning over 100 years, our journals portfolio is at the forefront of the psychology community with international contributions and readership.

The flagship journal, The British Journal of Psychology, was founded in 1904 by James Ward and W.H.R. Rivers who wished to create a publication that reflected the enthusiasm towards psychology at the turn of the century. In 1914, it was acquired by the British Psychological Society and provided a basis on which new journals were launched into other more specific subject areas. Currently, there are 11 titles with the newest addition, Journal of Neuropsychology, launched in 2007.
