Wiley hosts developmental psychology roundtable at SRCD
Date:4/6/2011

Hoboken, NJ, April 6, 2011On Thursday, March 31, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa, JWb) hosted a Wiley Psychology Roundtable focused on developmental psychology, entitled Putting Research into Practice. The invitation-only forum, held at the 2011 Society for Research and Child Development Biennial Meeting in Montreal, was a dynamic discussion about the needs and methods of making research in developmental psychology more accessible.

The Company, through its Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Scholarly; Professional/ Trade; and Higher Education businesses, reaches a broad array of stakeholders, including educators, clinicians, policy makers, researchers, and students. Based on the outcome of this event, which extends across all three businesses, Wiley will develop an action plan to ensure that research in developmental psychology is readily available to those working with and for children and adolescents.

"This roundtable brought together some of the most influential authors, editors, and organizations in the field to address the longstanding issues of how best to transform research into practice. Developmental Psychology is a critically important discipline which has an impact on all of our futures," said Philip Carpenter, Vice President, Social Science and Humanities, Wiley-Blackwell. "As the leading publisher in this field, we have a commitment to disseminating its findings to the wider community."

"I thought it was a very cool session...the style of it was outstanding," said Richard Rende, Associate Professor of Psychiatry & Human Behavior, Brown Medical School and Butler Hospital. "I think there's good consensus that there's a real need to take what we're doing on the research side and provide that information. There's a lot of different ways that that can happen. I think the take home for me is we have to be creative about...staying connected to the science when we're translating it for people."

"I thought it was a fantastic event," said Gerry Mulhern, President of the British Psychological Society. "It's a great way for publishers to contact stakeholders, allowing us to share experiences about the challenges of getting our message out to people who want to hear it, and to those with whom we wish to share our science ... the suggestions that came out of the session were excellent. Very thought-provoking."
