Academic Book Week

Posted on: November 27, 2015

Health psychology and psychology academic books9-16 November was Academic Book Week which celebrates the importance of academic books and also promotes their relevance and use to the public at large. This was the first time the event has run and it’s global.

What is an academic book? It’s a book that has involved research which has added something new to the field and has taken a long time to complete. Therefore it’s larger than a journal article for example. We’re busy adding new academic books to our collection for our students all of the time. This week we’ve added:

Gross, R. and Kinnison, N. (2014) Psychology for Nurses and Health Professionals. 2nd edn. New York: CRC Press.

Wadeley, A. (2011) AQA AS Psychology: Unit 1 Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Research Methods. London: Collins Education.
