The PsychBLOG guide to Psychology & Science blogs


Ever since I started this blog (and especially since I wrote the post on how to subscribe using RSS readers) I have had loads of emails from people asking what blogs I read and where to find them. Some of the top blogs in Science and Psychology are linked on the side of the site (the Psychology Blogs Section) but there’s so many other ones out there with loads of stuff on them. Of course, you could just keep reading this site for a roundup and commentary on what’s-going-on! ;)

So I’ve decided to put together a list of the blogs that I’m currently reading and keeping my eye on. This list changes each and every day as I find new gems and decided that some of the ones that I’m reading really aren’t my cup-of-tea. But if you’re just starting reading blogs and need a nice ‘psychology lot’ of blogs then you can start with some of these – if you still want more or these aren’t what you’re looking for then technorati or Google Blogsearch are great places to find more.

There’s quite a few blogs there for you … some are excellent ones that post regularly, others posts a little less than that! Really it’s just a case of you reading each one and deciding if you like it – not just the content but the style of writing. This is not an exhaustive list – these are just the ones that I read – you’re tastes might not be the same. Remember that you can subscribe to loads of blogs at once using a Blog Reader.

I’m sure that there’s other really fab blogs out there that I’ve missed. If you know any put them in the comments or discussion forum.

    Readers are also welcome to browse through my collection at bloglines if they are interested in finding content across a wide range of topics. I try to add new blogs regularly, although the number is getting quite large and I wouldn’t recommend that people try to keep up with 400 blogs!!

    Hey there,

    Great list of psychology resources here! And thanks for the great shout out to Suite101. We do have hundreds of articles on the topic!

    I happen to notice, though, that one of your links to us is broken (Suite101: Psychology) – under your “blogs” section here, and the other one (Suite101: Psych Articles) under “magazines” points to one of our psychology archive pages.

    I think it would be more useful to your readers to consolidate us under your magazine section and link to our Psychology homepage: This is where all the most up to date information we publish can be found!

    Let me know if this is possible!!

    thanks for keeping such a great resource available!
