The InterPsych Newsletter (IPN) (ISSN# 1355-2562) is the
predecessor publication of the PsychNews International. The first three
issues had been published by Ian Pitchford as the sole editor, as a
service to and the mouthpiece of the consortium InterPsych.
The main charter members of the IPN were Sunkyo Kwon (Managing Editor),
Joseph Plaud (Managing Editor), and Sean Sullivan (Editor-in-Chief). The
IPN was then produced continuously by Sean Sullivan, Sunkyo Kwon, Joe Plaud
and John Grohol (there was considerable fluctuation among the other
members of the staff) from August 1994 until November 1995. The
transition to producing the IPN in a team was marked by changing the
volume number from Vol. 1 to Vol. 2.
The staff of the IPN decided that the community would be better served by an unaffiliated, independent publication and continued its activities -- without Sean Sullivan who resigned for personal reasons -- since December 1995 as the "PsychNews International".
The team is in the process of being reshuffled; the aims and contents of the PsychNews are also changing since beginning 2001. This includes a more international orientation and more interactivity with the readers. If you are interested to become actively involved, contact us.
