A listserv is simply an electronic mailing list that is operated similar to an online thread. It allows people to easily create, maintain, and control information sent out to a collective list of e-mail addresses. Once a topic is started, other members of the listserv can reply and in turn see others’ responses to the original post. Having a single list of subscribers removes the burden for members as they only need to maintain their own subscription status. Many listserv memberships, such as those sponsored through SCN, are private and by subscription only.
Please note that there are rules to using the SCN listservs. Outside of practicing general etiquette when interacting with other listserv members, APA has their own set of listserv usage rules that all users must abide by. Please first read the APA listserv usage rules. These rules may be found online here. Welcome to the SCN Listservs – and happy posting!

The Association for Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) also sponsors a series of listservs that are beneficial for any students and trainees applying for internship and fellowship. For prospective interns, most relevant are the APPIC match announcement, post-match vacancy announcement, and intern applicant discussion listservs. For prospective fellows, most relevant are the fellowship announcement and applicant discussion listservs.
