Subscribing to APA E-Newsletters and Alerts

APA has created a space within MyAPA where registered users manage e-newsletter subscriptions and email subscriptions to informational alerts. This page, entitled “Manage my E-Newsletter & Alert Opt-ins” shows the breadth of information available to you as a benefit of registering an account with us. Newsletters you currently receive have been pre-selected for you. Visit the page to see if there are other items you’d like us to send. Click on the “more info” link to get a description of the newsletter or alert and its frequency. Click “less info” to make the descriptive text disappear.

A new and exciting feature we’re offering through this portal is the ability to receive special alerts when APA publishes research in areas that interest you. You can choose from several preset categories such as autism, schizophrenia, depression or customize alerts based on your specific needs or areas of specializations. See the “Research Alerts” section near the bottom of the page to order this new service.

If at any time you'd like to change your e-newsletter and alert subscriptions, come back to the opt-in page and uncheck whatever you'd like to stop or merely postpone because you'll be on vacation, for example. The choices – and the control – are up to you. We hope you enjoy this feature.

RSS Feeds from APA

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a format for sharing web content that allows you to identify the content you like and have only that new content delivered directly to you. To subscribe to APA RSS feeds, you must have an online or desktop RSS news reader installed on your computer. When new content is published to an RSS-enabled page, a list of the new articles headlines, summaries and links to the full-text article are automatically sent to your RSS reader without requiring you to revisit the page.
