Quick links to BPS Explore

BPS Explore is our easy-to-access central location for you to read and download a wide range of psychological content from practitioners, researchers and working groups.

Here are some popular BPS Explore publications to get you started:

Institutional subscriptions of BPS periodicals

BPS periodicals changed from print delivery to digital-only downloads in March 2020.

If you bought a print subscription in 2020 or 2021 you're eligible for a refund for issues you didn’t receive – please contact our customer support team.

Institutional subscribers can download digital issues by visiting our BPS online shop and purchasing individual PDFs.

As a gesture of goodwill, we’d like to give you permission to download your usual content at the individual licence price, but use the content as you would with an institutional licence.

We recognise this is a time to support higher education providers, so this arrangement will remain in place until we have online subscriptions available.

We’re developing a new digital publication system which will allow organisations (like universities) to subscribe to a digital version of our titles, using their usual access methods for their students.

The new system will also offer a print-on-demand service. When the new system is ready to launch, we will contact all previous subscribers with details on purchasing online subscriptions.

Each chapter demonstrates how this vibrant and constantly evolving discipline is at the heart of some of the biggest issues facing us all today. The last chapter discusses the future of cognitive psychology, which includes guidance on conducting rigorous, replicable research and how to use skills from cognitive psychology to be an effective student.

Packed with pedagogical features, each chapter includes boxed examples of cognitive psychology in the real world and engaging ‘try it yourself’ features.

Each chapter also includes objectives, a range of illustrative figures, chapter summaries, key readings and a glossary for ease of use. The book is fully supported by original online resources for students and instructors.
