About Research Digest

Since 2003, the British Psychological Society has been digesting new research in psychology. Visit the blog at for a huge archive, back episodes of our podcast and much more.
We now digest at least one new journal article every weekday, aiming to demonstrate that psychological science is fascinating and useful while also casting a critical eye over its methods. Our Editor Christian Jarrett and Contributing Writer Alex Fradera are both qualified in psychology to PhD level and they read thoroughly all the peer-reviewed research they report on. We strive to write in a style that educates, entertains and generates interest, but without resorting to hype.
For much more psychology, see and download The Psychologist app for iOS and Android. For more information about the British Psychological Society and to join, see
