gradPSYCH readers like their paper edition

In May, APA surveyed a representative sample of gradPSYCH readers, asking if you would prefer to receive your magazine in a digital format via e-mail, rather than through the mail. Thirty-nine percent of you responded with a resounding "no."

For the 35 percent of readers who would prefer to receive a digital version of gradPSYCH, we are considering a system where readers can opt out of receiving the print version and get a digital version instead. And, to cut costs, we are now only sending gradPSYCH to paid subscribers and APAGS members. Subscription information.


Fund your research with an APAGS grant
