BC Psychologist Journal: Important Updates

1. Journal Postponement for Annual General Meeting Report:
Our Editorial Committee has made the decision to postpone the release of the next journal issue until early December. This delay is to ensure that we can include a comprehensive report on the Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for November 15, 2023. Starting with the upcoming issue, we will publish biannually in December (Winter) and June (Summer).

2. Transitioning to Digital Format Only:
In line with our commitment to environmental sustainability and cost-effectiveness, the Board of Directors has decided to shift entirely from traditional print to a digital format for our journal. This change not only reduces our ecological footprint but also offers a more accessible and convenient reading experience for our readers.

3. We are seeking new members to join the Editorial Committee:
We invite you to become actively involved in our organization by joining one of our committees. Your expertise and passion can make a significant impact. If you're interested in contributing to our mission, please submit your interest by clicking here.
