Psi-Chi-ology Lab

SUBMISSIONS 101


Psi-Chi-ology Lab is seeking 400- to 1,000-word creative articles—written by Psi Chi members just like you. Faculty and student authors are welcome.

Here's What We're Looking for

Personal stories. Consider writing about your own unique experiences or perspectives, especially those related to your favorite Honor Society. In other words, maybe you would like to talk about an inspirational moment that happened during your induction ceremony. Or, perhaps you could describe what you learned as an officer of your chapter. We always enjoy hearing about how your Psi Chi chapter helped to improve your community too.

Informational articles. For example, consider writing about how a psychology principle helped you to solve a problem or study more effectively. Or, based on your experience, provide specific advice and perhaps a few sample materials to organize/host a particular chapter event (photos welcome!). You could also inform students about something that you wish you had known before going to graduate school or starting your psychology-related career.

The sky is the limit. If the average psychology enthusiast would be interested, then we are interested too! For example, consider explaining how One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest did an excellent job at portraying a psychological illness, or pose a "What If" essay that encourages readers to discuss how they would react in a particular situation at their chapter or beyond.

Is your metaphorical Rorscharch Inkblot beginning to take shape? We sure hope so!
