About this item
SAGE Benchmarks in Psychology brings together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in each of the subdisciplines of psychological science presented as a series of multivolume major works.
Each multivolume set represents a collection of the published works from leading international scholars and academics throughout the world, collated from the foremost journals in each field and brought together by an editor or editorial team of renowned international stature. A full introduction is offered by the editor(s) of each set to present a rationale for the selection of articles, an overview of the field, the discipline’s past, present and likely future, and to draw upon the articles selected in each volume as signposts for the reader.
Psychological science has evolved enormously throughout the latter half of the 20th century. It is therefore vital that a solid academic reference is available for university libraries which presents the outstanding work and research in each subdiscipline of the field. This series presents the ‘gold standard’ for university libraries throughout the world with an existing collection or interest in psychological reference works.
