The Rookie Student Newsletter

The Rookie is the graduate student section of SPSSI’s newsletter, The Forward. The Rookie provides an opportunity for SPSSI graduate students to disseminate their work to the larger SPSSI community and to gain experience with the publication process. We encourage submissions from all areas of psychology, including clinical, community, developmental, social, cognitive, neuroscience, industrial/organizational, etc. 
Submissions may take many forms, including, but not limited to: emerging research by graduate students, tips for surviving graduate school (e.g., writing, time management, applying for academic or non-academic jobs), describing policy implications of research, commentary on current events/social issues that incorporates the student’s research and/or psychological theory in general.

We now have our past student newsletters available on the web! Please click on a newsletter below for easy access. (Please bear in mind that emails, addresses, links, etc. may have changed). The Rookie Student Newsletter was previously a stand-alone publication and is now part of The Forward.

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
