Celebrating 20 Years of Advancing Psychological Science
APS was founded in 1988 to advance scientific psychology. The vision of our founders was instrumental in making APS a success story and members have guided this effort with leadership, talent, and dedication. Twenty years later, APS continues as the most effective voice for psychological science.
This special area of the website celebrates the last 20 years of APS history. Features include the Observer's "Then & Now" columns, a timeline of APS history, and much more. Check back regularly for updates -- we'll be adding new material all year.
