  1. I'm a PhD student in psychology and I love visiting BPS research digest to keep myself updated with research in areas other than my research interest. A copy of AP would be a bonus for me! Cheers

It definitely helps to raise your level of thinking and critical analysis, whilst reading about cutting-edge and FUN research in topics you might not otherwise read about. AP

  9. The BPS research digest is a brilliant way to keep up to date with new research, a lot of it makes the brain cogs start to turn. It is brilliant for stimulating conversations between different individuals; students, lecturers, professionals and those who are just generally interested in psychology.

    As well as this, the frequent links to radio shows and television programmes which are relevant is helpful as often they are given obscure titles, so putting it all together is a brilliant resource for everyone.
