Unwrapping EPRaP – a new OA periodical

There’s a new Open Access (OA) periodical in town! Last Thursday the School of Psychology launched Educational Psychology Research and Practice or EPRaP. The brainchild of Miles Thomas and Sharon Cahill, the periodical intends to provide a forum for “informed debate and discussion of Educational Psychology research and training as well as a wider focus on issues of social justice and civic engagement in applied psychological practice”. This is a great initiative by the School to make more research accessible to all and offers a valuable opportunity for to publish research.

If you are interested in finding out more about OA, see my earlier post on the topic here. Alternatively, we’ve got several copies of the definitive work on Open Access by Peter Suber available in the library or you can download a PDF of the book here.

Congratulations to Miles, Sharon and everyone involved in EPRaP!
