The creation of comprehensive, current web resource for psychology helps fulfill a key responsibility of the International Union of Psychological Science, that of advancing psychology as an international discipline and ensuring that information about the profession and psychological knowledge are widely disseminated. The IUPsyS, web-editors, and Psychology Press are committed to fulfilling this function.
Psychology Resources Around the World was first launched in 2010, and relaunched in 2016 with a new format. The current site is a direct descendant of earlier Union products that provided comprehensive international information about psychology: a website launched in 2010 (edited by Merry Bullock) and material that was included in the 10 editions of Psychology: IUPsyS Global Resource, a CD Rom that was edited by Bruce and Judith Overmier (2000-2004) and Danny Wedding and Michael Stevens (2005-2009). This resource was, in turn, a descendant of the Union’s earliest compendia for the discipline – directories of psychological institutions (The IUPsyS Directory, published 1993), and directories of psychologists (International Directory of Psychologists, published 1958, 1966, 1980 and 1985). See History of the CD Rom.
Many people have provided the vision, resources, organization, and work that have led to the current web resource. These include:
- Colleagues at Psychology Press and Sage/Wiley who have had shared the vision and provided the technical know-how to make it real
- The Chairs and members of the IUPsyS Committees on Publications and Communication
- Those who have edited content sections and provided countless hours finding, organizing, and collating material from dates to data.
