About the Society

The EPS was founded in 1946. Its role is to facilitate research in experimental psychology, and scientific communication among experimental psychologists and those working in cognate fields. Based in the UK, it also has many members in mainland Europe and elsewhere overseas.

The EPS holds regular scientific meetings at which members and guests present their work, sponsors scientific workshops on special topics, and awards grants and prizes to facilitate postdoctoral, postgraduate and undergraduate research. These activities are funded primarily by proceeds from the sale of the EPS’s journal, the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology (QJEP).

Members receive regular information about meetings and other Society activities, and a subscription to QJEP. Information about applying for membership may be found here. Postgraduates in psychology may join a mailing list in order to receive meeting programmes and other information.
