Hi! My name is Mary, I’m a college freshman and I’m writing an English paper on credible sources written about my chosen topic (body language/ nonverbal communication). For the purpose of my English paper, I would like to know if your articles are peer reviewed and also if you (the author of the Body Language Project) are an expert on the topic, a college professor, or just interested enough in the topic to write a book about it? Thank you!
Yes, BLP primarily relies on peer review journals.
Five days a week we cover new research here: http://bodylanguageproject.com/articles/
A growing list of resources which are used in the articles here: http://bodylanguageproject.com/articles/resources-and-references-used-in-the-articles/
The book that appears here: http://bodylanguageproject.com/the-only-book-on-body-language-that-everybody-needs-to-read/
And it’s resources listed here: http://bodylanguageproject.com/the-only-book-on-body-language-that-everybody-needs-to-read/references/
I am a graduate of the University of Guelph BSc with a Minor in Psychology. I am not a college professor, but I run BLP as a side-project since I find nonverbal communication fascinating. I believe that body language is a growing field with ever increasing applications. I believe that we will find many interesting ties between the body and its link to our mental state. In the future we will see just how entwined the two actually are.
The BLP website is quite likely the most well researched website on body language that you will ever find.
I can likely be of assistance as can the BLP website. If you can’t find something specifically, feel free to ask.
Thank you so much for the reply! I wasn’t actually expecting one but this is extremely helpful to me. Your website is now officially the most credible source on body language/nonverbal communication I have looked at, and I can’t even begin to count how many sources I’ve been through (most listed as not credible). I actually do have one last question if that’s okay. When was this website published and do you still update it? Thank you again!
The website is routinely updated (5 times a week) in the articles section. We keep on top of all the new research that continuously comes in via primary research. Naturally, there are many sources that come out daily, so we try to discern which is interesting, applicable and unique.
The website is nearly 7 years old.
Wow! I can see you really love body language! This has been extremely helpful to me. I now see a possibility of getting an A on this paper. Thank you for creating such a great website!
Hey, Chris, fellow Gryphon,
Will the pdf books ever become hardcover or paperback and sold online from sources such as Amazon, Chapters, Indigo, etc.? Having a hard physical copy of the books would be fantastic. By the way, great job with this Body Language Project! Keep things going!
Supporting the project,
Publishing is an odd beast. Usually they want to take the copyright from you and so the current BLP would cease to exist. It’s not something I aim to do. Rather I want to grow the site to be a huge resource for people that wish to learn how to make nonverbal communication work for them. Should the opportunity arise, and I could maintain this site, I would certainly explore that avenue. But I wouldn’t give up control of the website. That’s the problem with current publishing.
I wonder if a publisher will notice and want to work with my nonverbal dictionary?
That would certainly be an interested in paper format.
What a useful article! Of real value. I’m so happy to have been part of this.
“pouching” a shoulder? hmmm? urban dictionary says pouching happens to some other part of the body. Perhaps “punching”?
