PSSRU announcements service

The PSSRU provides an announcements list hosted by jiscmail, the UK national academic mailing list service, which we would like to invite you to join. Subscribers to this service will receive email notification of publications, events and developments at the Unit. We anticipate sending up to 12 brief announcements each year, in plain text, with links to new publications on this website, many of which are now available for free download.

Joining instructions

There are two simple ways to join.

You can subscribe to the list and manage your preferences on the web by going to

Or you can subscribe by sending an email to, with the two-line command:

join PSSRULIST firstname lastname

You need to substitute your names. The second line is two dashes to signal the end of your email command. You will receive a subscription confirmation message from jiscmail as a security check. Respond to this message and you will be subscribed.

You can of course suspend or cancel your membership whenever you wish. The list is not a discussion list and there is no posting of messages by members permitted - so there are no worries about being swamped with messages! The PSSRU will of course not make list members' email addresses public.
