A Note from the President
Welcome to an exciting time in the history of a new discipline! A new field has been founded in the studies of science—the International Society for the Psychology of Science & Technology (ISPST) along with its newly established Journal of Psychology of Science & Technology soon to be published as an e-journal on our website - and previously published by Springer Publishing. The society gives voice and organization to a diverse group of psychological scholars of scientific and technological thought and behavior from around the world. A psychological perspective is not only a welcome addition to the well-established studies of science—history, philosophy, and sociology—but it is a necessary perspective if we are to more fully understand science and technology at both the individual and group level.
