Terms and conditions

The APS reserves the right to cancel or reject advertising deemed not to be in keeping with its scientific and professional aims.

All advertisement and insert final artwork must be approved by the APS before publishing. Advertisers are advised not to print their inserts until they receive written confirmation that the insert has been approved.

The APS reserves the right to correct spelling errors, redesign ads, request different imagery due to layout or content concerns, or decline requests depending on demand.

All advertising in APS publications and at APS events must comply with the APS Code of Ethics and any relevant requirements stipulated by the Psychology Board of Australia or the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, regardless of whether or not the external advertiser/sponsor is a registered psychologist, or is providing a regulated health service or an education and training program. For details, refer to the ‘Information for advertisers’ document, which can be downloaded at: psychology.org.au/publications/inpsych

Where an advertisement is promoting a university course that is not an approved course for the purposes of attaining APS membership, a disclaimer will appear alongside the advertisement to ensure clarity that the APS is not endorsing the course by publishing the advertisement, as follows:
*This course is not approved for the purposes of attaining APS membership.

The APS makes every reasonable effort to publish InPsych according to the distribution schedule. The APS is not liable for any loss or damage incurred by an advertiser as a result of any failure or delay in the distribution of InPsych.

Advertisers are required to pay in full by the booking and payment deadline for the issue in which the advertisement/insert is to appear.

Advertisers who select a bulk discount package are required to make payment for each advertisement by the booking and payment deadline for each edition of InPsych in which that advertisement is to appear. The discount will only apply to the last advertisement appearing as part of that advertising package.

Bulk advertising packages must be utilised within the stipulated time period and each advertisement must be the same size.

If payment has not been received for an advertisement by the deadline date for booking for that edition of InPsych, that advertisement will not be published and the cancellation fee will apply. Any bulk discount package will become null and void.

The booking will proceed unless the APS is notified of any cancellation in writing prior to the deadline.

Cancellation of an advertisement or insert after the booking deadline will incur a cancellation fee of 50% of the advertising fee for that advertisement.

Payment can be made by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and American Express) or cheque.

Where an advertisement is not published through no fault of the advertiser, the advertising fee that has been paid will be refunded.

Only four inserts are accepted per issue. Bookings are essential and are taken on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

There is a limit to the number of advertisements per issue. Only one advertisement (or insert) is allowed per advertiser in each edition of InPsych.

Advertisements will not be accepted in which the artwork includes ‘cutting along the dotted line’, or any other instruction which requires removal of part of the published InPsych bulletin.
