InPsych is the bimonthly bulletin of the Australian Psychological Society and is one of the primary means of communicating with the APS membership. InPsych is also circulated widely to other relevant professionals and organisations. The bulletin provides a prominent voice for the APS and psychology, presenting a cover feature in each edition on various topics, which provides an authoritative review of psychology’s contribution to important issues of community concern. The bulletin also includes information on important developments in professional matters, education and training, and membership initiatives, as well as highlighting the APS contribution in matters of public interest. InPsych also provides the means of promoting events, conferences and continuing professional development opportunities to APS members.
Members of the APS receive InPsych for free. Individuals who are non-members can subscribe directly.
Subscriptions run according to the calendar year i.e. 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016. Late subscribers are supplied with back issues.
Note: Special rates apply for those belonging to member Societies of the International Union of Psychological Science: ($85).

The APS welcomes completed articles from members for inclusion in future editions of InPsych. Submissions should relate to a topical psychology issue, or industry developments in Australia and overseas.
All articles submitted may be edited for length and style, and inclusion is at the editor's discretion. The recommended length is either 800 or 1600 words.
All articles must be written specifically for APS members, but in a non-technical and easy-to-read style. A 'conversational' tone of writing is appropriate for InPsych (similar to what you would expect to read in a weekend broadsheet newspaper magazine supplement but, of course, written specifically for psychologists).
August 2016: Psychology and chronic pain
The August 2016 InPsych cover feature will highlight psychology and chronic pain. The APS invites members with expertise in an aspect of this area to submit a 200-word abstract of a proposed article for consideration by the InPsych editorial committee. The committee will then select abstracts and invite those authors to submit a full article for publication.
Articles proposed by members should present a practical application of the cover feature, with an ‘on-the-ground’ focus relevant to the theme. Articles will be selected to complement the lead article, which will provide a more theoretical state-of-the-art overview of the area. In addition, selected abstracts will be chosen to appear as articles in the cover feature based on suitability (e.g., if a number of abstracts are received proposing similar articles, only one will be chosen).
The word length of final articles will be confirmed upon selection. However, no selected article will have a word length in excess of 1,600 words in length (including references, in APA format). All articles must be written specifically for APS members, but in a non-technical and easy-to-read style. A 'conversational' tone of writing is appropriate for InPsych (similar to what you would expect to read in a weekend broadsheet newspaper magazine supplement but, of course, written specifically for psychologists).
The deadline for all abstracts is Monday 16 May 2016. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified soon after the abstract deadline and final articles will be required by the end of December 2015.
For more information or to submit an abstract for the February issue, please email email@example.com.
