About Psychlopaedia

Psychlopaedia® is an online publication devoted to psychology. It aims to make this immense field – the discoveries, the disorders, treatments, as well as insights into the human mind and behaviour – accessible to all.

It is published by the Australian Psychological Society, the leading organisation for psychologists in Australia.

As well as publishing original content we will be aggregating, curating and sharing psychology news and views from around the web. We aim to be a place where you can come for all the latest and best news from psychology.

We believe psychology can help expand your mind and improve your life.

At Psychlopaedia® our mission is to grow a community with an interest in, and passion for, human behaviour and psychology by providing high quality content backed by the latest research.


The Communications team of the Australian Psychological Society publishes Psychlopaedia®.

Psychlopaedia® invites psychologists and other experts in this field to share their contributions and demonstrate how much psychology has to offer in the modern age.

We hope to uncover great psychology communicators who can bring insights into human behaviour to our community in interesting and entertaining forms (articles, opinions, blogs, podcasts, videos).

The focus will be on bringing quality evidence-based content to readers in an accessible form.
