Clinical psychologist's training emphasises research as a key component of their professional skills. Recent surveys have shown, however, that the majority of clinical psychologists produce no research. Looking only at articles published as a definition of research may have led previous surveys to underestimate the level of research activity of clinical psychologists. Using a broader definition of research activity, "The RIPS: Research Involvement of Psychologists Scale" was constructed and distributed to a sample of qualified clinical psychologists working in the NHS. The survey revealed that previous surveys of this kind had underestimated the research activity of clinical psychologists, and that the majority of respondents indicated that they were dissatisfied with their lack of research involvement, pressure to spend time in clinical contact contributing significantly to this. Clinical psychologists must alter their working priorities if they are to fulfil the research potential promised by their lengthy and intensive research training.
