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.

Information for contributors to InPsych

General contributions

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).

Abstract submission for an InPsych cover feature


The August 2015 InPsych cover feature will highlight psychological assessment of capacity in a variety of different settings and client groups, for example, older adults, disability, forensic settings. The APS invites members with expertise in an aspect of this area to contribute to the cover feature 'compendium' of short summary articles, each of which will be presented in a structured format across relevant settings/client groups.

Members are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to contribute to the cover feature. Expressions of Interest should include the area of expertise of the author, proposed setting/client group and summary bullet points under three broad headings: (1) general principles for capacity assessment in the particular client group/setting; (2) ethical and practice issues; and (3) considerations for test interpretation. Expressions of Interest will be selected to be written up as articles (800 words) for the cover feature on the basis of suitability and variety.

The deadline for Expressions of Interest is Monday 18 May 2015. Selected authors will be notified soon after the deadline and final articles will be required by the end of June 2015.

For more information or to submit an Expression of Interest to contribute to the
August 2015 InPsych cover feature, please email
