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.
The aim of the society is to promote, advance and disseminate psychological knowledge. To help us achieve this, we not only publish journals but also facilitate free and discounted access to our journals and related articles for our members.
We publish eleven academic journal titles in partnership with Wiley, which can be accessed via PsychHub.
Access to the abstracts is free to all, while online access to the full text is free to BPS members (Student, Affiliate, Graduate, Full and Chartered).
Print on demand for members
From 2024, BPS members are eligible to order print copies at a discounted rate.
As part of our ongoing publishing partnership with Wiley, BPS members enjoy full access to an additional 32 related Wiley journals, plus a variety of related media, via PsychHub.
Non-members are also able to search and view abstracts.
EBSCO Psychology and Behavioural Sciences Collection
This collection includes over 300 (non-open access) journal titles covering psychology and adjacent disciplines, plus a further 140 peer-reviewed magazines.
Online access to this content is free for Student, Associate, Graduate, Full and Chartered members.
BMJ Mental Health (formerly Evidence-Based Mental Health)
From 2023, the journal Evidence-Based Mental Health has transitioned to a fully open access model and been re-named BMJ Mental Health.
Until this time, the journal was owned jointly by the BPS, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the BMJ. As part of the transition process, the BMJ has purchased the other organisations’ shares in the journal.
To continue the collaborative relationship BPS members benefit from a 15 per cent discount code on the journal’s Article Publishing Charge (APC) to publish in the journal. Visit our Resources and benefits page and view ‘Discounts’ (sign-in required).

This unique textbook explores core cognitive psychology topics from an innovative new perspective, focusing on key real-world issues to show how we understand and experience the world.
The book examines compelling topics such as creativity, problem-solving, reasoning, rationality and language, all within the context of modern 21st century life. 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.
Offering a new model for the study of cognitive psychology that brings the subject alive, the book is essential reading for all students studying psychology and related disciplines.
This book belongs to the BPS Core Textbook Series.
