Since then, the organization has grown to one with over 80 volunteers who are diligently working on the English, German, Italian, and Dutch language version of the peer-reviewed journal (for its English version, see http://www.in-mind.org).
The foundation is devoted to communicating psychology – of all disciplines (e.g., social, developmental, cognitive, clinical, et cetera) and has done so in diverse ways, from the main enterprise of its flagship journal, to writing workshops at the yearly meeting for the Association of Psychological Science, to a quiz app for iPhone and Android (no longer in use), to videos explaining psychological concepts.
