BC Psychologist

The BC Psychologist is the quarterly publication of the BC Psychological Association. The publication is distributed to members of the Association who live throughout BC, and it is also mailed to all registrants of the College of Psychologists of BC every July.

This publication offers a venue for psychologists across BC to communicate and exchange opinions about recent advances in psychological research, discuss the impact of current events and legislation on psychologists, and find out more about colleagues and their original work; it is also a forum where ethics as it relates to the practice of psychology can be explored.

Members and affiliates receive a free yearly subscription to the BC Psychologist as part of their membership or affiliation benefits.They can also log in and download a PDF version of the publication from the bottom of this page.

How to contribute

You can contribute to the BC Psychologist simply by writing. Make sure to submit original articles, and to follow our writing guidelines [PDF]. Please note that the BC Psychologist is a peer-reviewed journal.

By advertising in our publication, you are helping us fund production and layout, and you are supporting a discussion on psychology and mental health in BC. Members and affiliates are eligible for reduced advertising rates, as well as volume advertising options.

Guest Editors
To steer the publication and help the writers in their task, we plan on recruiting Guest Editors for the publication. These would be BCPA members and psychologists willing to volunteer their time; in exchange, they would have the privilege of shaping this growing publication.

This effort will require a commitment to quality, and a good level of expertise in the topic covered by the upcoming issue(s). For example, if you want to guest-edit an issue centred on PTSD, you should have some significant amount of experience in the treatment or research on PTSD, or both.

If you are interested in guest-editing the publication, please contact us for more information.
