Reading and Video Resources for (IB) Psychology
Posted by togalearning
The below resources are ones I have my elective and IB Psychology students reference throughout the course for additional reading and research. These are professional sites with quality summaries and/or access to original research reports.
Below the reading resources are some video playlists I compiled that give nice overviews of concepts within each of the Levels of Analyses and the option in IB Psychology. The videos are short, yet effective in helping visualize the concepts in those units.
- THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION – The American Psychological Association is the largest scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States. Tons of articles and research studies on all topics related to psychology.
- THE BRITISH PSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY– The British equivalent of the APA.
- PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH ON THE NET – Provides links to known experiments on the internet that are psychologically related. They are organized by general topic area with the topic areas listed chronologically with the most recently added at the top.
- ELECTRONIC JOURNALS AND PERIODICALS IN PSYCHOLOGY – An exhaustive list of psychology journals and periodicals. These journals are where you find original reports about psychological research studies (qualitative, quantitative, secondary reviews of literature, and meta-analyses).
- PSYBLOG – Professionally written summaries of psychological research relating to everyday life.
- PSYCH CENTRAL – Very thorough website with news, articles, and current research and issues in psychology.
- THE PSYCHOLOGIST – The monthly publication of the British Psychological Society.
- PSYCHOLOGY TODAY – Popular American magazine devoted to news, stories, and research related to psychology.
- SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN MIND – This is my favorite magazine related to psychology. Unfortunately, you only get previews of the articles here. You have to subscribe to get full access. It could be worth the subscription cost if you are thinking about majoring in psychology in university!
