January's Psychologist magazine - free for all!

The next issue of The Psychologist magazine has been made publicly available in its entirety via the digital platform Issuu (click mini version below to see full mag).



This service allows you to flick threw the pages online as if you had the magazine in your hands; to zoom in at will; print; share; and more. In fact this is very much a work in progress and the coming days will see the in-text weblinks go active, among other developments. We're aware of some problems with viewing the magazine in Internet Explorer and should have these ironed out in a jiffy.

January's issue features a particularly spicy cocktail of features, including articles on gossip, testosterone, stigma, obesity and an interview with Nobel Prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman. There's also the usual mix of news, views and reviews.

If you like what you see, why not take out a print subscription?

The editor Dr Jon Sutton would love to hear your views on the magazine, including what you think of this new digital format. Use comments, below, or email him direct on jon.sutton[at]bps.org.uk.

    This is a fantastic idea. Is this a one off or will there be subsequent publications available electronically?

    Why not have it available on bit-torrent if you are worried about funding then have an electronic version of the magazine with some discreet adverts. I know as an academic institution there will be some resistence to this but for those that want to have a print version rather than the electronic this would provide an even greater incentive.

  2. That is great! I currently read a knitting magazine that is published with "pages" that you can "turn" and it's lovely. The publishers do have the added bonus of having lots of advertising, though, with ads you can click to these online yarn stores.
    I really liked the article on astronauts in space. My pipe dream for when I am finished with school is to work for NASA.
