The Centre for Psychological Research is devoted to achieving the objectives and meeting the research needs that are specific to the REF2021-Unit 4 submission (Psychology, Psychiatry, Neuroscience). This is in line with the current university strategy to shape each School’s research activities to be guided by the larger framework of the REF strategy in terms of output, infrastructure, environment and impact.

PsyCen has two initiatives that are relevant with regard to research environment within the School of Social Sciences:

  • Early Career Research Network (ECRN) - Coordinator: Glen Janowski & Neda Mahmoodi
  • Qualitative Methods Support (QUALMS) - Programme Lead: Tom Muskett
