PsychFutures

Since launching in September 2009, this community has rapidly grown to over 600 members from all over the world.

PsychFutures is an open network, albeit designed for individuals at various stages of their psychology career, from A-Level to degree-level to professionals. Primarily, we are about choosing your next step in psychology. For A-Level psychology students who are thinking about studying the subject at degree level, there’s advice on exam preparation and applying to university or college. For undergraduates thinking about post-degree options, our members provide peer-to-peer advice about postgrad psychology. For those looking beyond studying we have a section devoted to psychology careers.

As well as the aforementioned resources, members have access to our forum where they can: advertise books for sale; seek advice concerning their psychology research; recruit participants for their projects and debate on a range of psychology-related issues. In addition, members can contribute to our growing blog posts by publishing their own or by commenting on those already live.

The Archives of the History of American Psychology

The Archives of the History of American Psychology (AHAP) was established in 1965 at The University of Akron to promote research in the history of psychology by collecting, cataloguing, and preserving the historical record of psychology. The central feature of the AHAP is the manuscript collection, which includes the papers of over 740 psychologists. The growth of the repository exceeded projections, both in the rate at which materials were donated and in their diversity. This expansion led in 1976 to the establishment of the Child Development Film Archives, a unit that cares for both research footage and instructional films. This expansion was followed, in 1980, by a decision to supplement the numerous unsolicited gifts of books by devoting space to the published literature dealing with the substantive content of psychology as well as with its history and philosophy. Since its inception the archives has continuously acquired apparatus, equipment, testing materials, and all forms of media.

In the language of the archival world, the Archives of the History of American Psychology is a subject-matter archives (most repositories are based on geographic, military, or political themes). Therefore, the staff is trained in archival methods but also has a comprehensive knowledge of psychology as well as its organizational patterns and educational practices. The director is a psychologist, and a number of members of the board of advisers represent subfields of psychology as well as the academic discipline of history.
