Many of our members publish in both historical and psychological journals, with the result that excellent work is often overlooked. In order to help spread knowledge of our members' work, we are creating a database of recent research accessible on our website. If you would like to have your research listed, please send us titles, dates, and place of publication. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
