Best guide to new psychology research
What can the BPS Research Digest do for you? Well, it will introduce and keep you up to date with the best new psychology research being published in academic journals. It’s all proper science that’s been translated from academic-journal-speak into langauge we can all understand. Can’t say fairer than that.

Best psychology blog carnival
Blog carnivals are a neat way to highlight great posts on related topic from different blogs. In psychology and neuroscience, Encephalon is the Daddy of blog carnivals. Coming out every two weeks and hosted by a different blogger each time, Encephalon enables you to sample new blogs and marvel at the sheer diversity of the psychology blogosphere.

Best neuroscience blog
And while I’m talking about the Daddy of psychology carnivals, I should mention Encephalon’s Daddy, the Neurophilosopher. In depth but accessible, the Neurophilosopher covers neuroscience and too much else to sum up here. Head over there, but be warned – it’s addictive!

Best sex psychology blog
Dr Boynton’s blog covers sex and relationship issues, but one of her missions is to improve the quality of information on these topics produced by the mainstream media. To that end, she exposes some of the more lamentable attempts to report psychology along with ways it could be improved. Unfortunately, sometimes it really is as bad as you think it is. Dr Boynton is a lecturer at a London University.
