A key aspect of the APS mission as a learned society is to advocate for high standards of education and practice, and to promote the scientific nature of the psychology discipline. In 2011 the APS has introduced a number of new membership benefits that aim to facilitate evidence-based practice and support members' continuing professional development.

Free access to the Psychology and Behavioural Sciences Collection database

The APS has contracted an arrangement to provide APS members with online access to one of the world's largest psychology literature databases, offering full-text access to more than 550 international journals, keyword search facilities and customised email alerts.

Revamped APS journals with a new publisher, Wiley-Blackwell

The flagship APS journals now have greater accessibility and appeal, with a new editorial team, an increased focus on the practical implications of published articles, a revitalised design and a clearer page layout.

  • Online access to APS journals (all members receive a hard copy of either Australian Psychologist or the Australian Journal of Psychology as part of their membership)
