Hello AAPB members!
Following are a few of the projects the board has been working on:
The folks on the board that are doing all of this are volunteers who have "day" jobs. It is an enormous amount of work to keep AAPB flourishing. Consider volunteering for one of the many opportunities as they are posted on the web site.

Did you publish a book with Springer before 2005? Do you know someone who did?
Springer, the publisher of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, about a decade ago digitized all back issues of this journal - back to Volume 1, Number 1 - to make them available to libraries and their patrons and to AAPB members as part of their member benefits. Of course, this digitization applied to all journals published by Springer. Groundbreaking and mindboggling at the time, these days it's taken for granted. Now, Springer is working to digitize all the books it ever published, initially over 100,000.
Springer Book Archives will consist of high-quality digital versions of books published between 1842 and 2005, including many that are now out of print, making them available again via our SpringerLink platform, via e-reading devices, and in print. The archive includes about 40 respected imprints, such as Chapman & Hall, Kluwer Academic Publishers, and Plenum Press, and affirms the commitment to preserve valuable scholarly content that will enable academics/researchers worldwide to access forever a rich trove of information via their libraries.
To include a book in the archive, Springer needs authorization from its author(s) and is sending out e-mails to hundreds of thousands of authors. Even so, it's difficult to reach all authors. If you published with Springer or think you may have, please visit www.springer.com/SBAauthor to find out how you can easily assign digital rights to your book(s) and your benefits in doing so.
Vol. 40, Issue 3 (Fall 2012) is now available online. To access Biofeedback, please login to the AAPB website. Under "Member Benefits", click on "AAPB Online Publications".

MEMBER BENEFIT SPOTLIGHT
Did you know that for an additional $50 per year, potential clients/patients can find you by using AAPB's online "Find-a-Practitioner" tool. Patients can search by provider name or location or specialty or by condition/disorder.
You can get listed in the directory by:
This listing of biofeedback/applied psychophysiology providers is provided as a public service because it is difficult to locate biofeedback providers offering interventions for particular disorders. AAPB feels very strongly that anyone providing biofeedback based services should meet at least the minimum standards of knowledge, training, and experience required to be certified by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). If a provider is not certified by BCIA, you should be especially cautious when entering into a treatment arrangement. It is important that you determine whether the person is licensed or certified to practice if you are looking for clinical intervention. There are other organizations which do certify people in biofeedback but AAPB has not assessed their criteria for certification.
Practitioners listed in the AAPB provider directory listing have noted by self-attest that they meet the following criteria. They must:
