The British Psychological Society (BPS), the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK, and leading psychology publisher Routledge have announced a new partnership which will see the launch of at least six book series in their new joint book program.
With more than ten titles released each year, these series will introduce up-to-date, innovative, and accessible texts on important topics for psychology students, trainees, researchers, professionals, and the public. The book program will champion diversity in both topic area and author base. The partnership will also introduce new benefits for BPS members, including discounts on all Routledge books.
Routledge, part of Taylor & Francis, will use its established technical expertise to ensure the BPS series are accessible and meet the needs of all readers. This will include publication in eBook and enhanced eBook+ formats, companion websites, alt text for images, and support for open research.
Debra Malpass, Director of Knowledge and Insight at the BPS, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Routledge to offer this exclusive discount to our members, and to extend this discount across all Routledge titles. Routledge is a leading publisher and this adds real value to our membership offer. I’d encourage all members to explore the different collections and take advantage of the offer.”
Lucy Kennedy, Senior Publisher for Psychology at Routledge, commented, “Routledge and the BPS share many common objectives, so it’s very exciting that we’ll be able to work together on these through our new partnership. We hope the variety of new book series will support career-long learning and provide valuable reading for all BPS membership groups. We are also looking forward to helping to bring a diverse range of psychology authors to an international readership.”
Further details about the scope of the BPS book series and forthcoming titles will be shared later this year.
