Current Directions in Psychological Science, the second oldest journal of the Association for Psychological Science, publishes reviews by leading experts covering all of scientific psychology and its applications. Each bimonthly issue of Current Directions features a diverse mix of reports on various topics such as language, memory and cognition, development, the neural basis of behavior and emotions, various aspects of psychopathology, and theory of mind. These articles allow readers to stay apprised of important developments across subfields beyond their areas of expertise and bodies of research they might not otherwise be aware of. The articles in Current Directions are also written to be accessible to nonexperts, making them ideally suited for use in the classroom as teaching supplements. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Listen to the Current Directions in Psychological Science Podcast to hear Editor Rob Goldstone interview CDPS authors to get deeper insights into the most compelling research published in the journal. Individual episodes can also be accessed via the supplemental material in published articles.

Read “Teaching Current Directions in Psychological Science,”  a column in the Observer offering advice and guidance about teaching a particular area of research or topic covered in the journal.
