APA professional collaboration site now available

APA Communities is a new collaborative work area connecting psychologists and helping them share information and ideas.

Created exclusively for APA members, affiliates and APA division members, APA Communities is an APA-moderated, closed social network (i.e., access to a section of the platform will be limited to an APA work group, task force or others interested in the issue area) where users can have online discussions and work together on documents housed in a central repository.

APA Communities enables users to: 

  • Create a personal profile and search for others by interest areas, research topics or affiliations 

  • Work collaboratively by uploading and reviewing documents 

  • Post important documents, such as agenda books or reports 

  • Participate in discussions 

  • Vote in polls on topics ranging from paper proposals to meeting locations

Members can sign up at APA Communities with their MyAPA account. For help logging in, creating a profile and using the site, see the introduction to APA Communities. New users can also access the “Getting Started” space on the site to find tips, tricks and tutorials and to ask questions about how to use the system.
