Can you point me in the direction of mental effects in which the Participant becomes the mind reader?

Thanks in advance.

"The Spectator as Telepathist" in "Thirteen Steps to Mentalism" its in Step one, tricks, is one that immediately comes to mind.

Here's something more recent:
https://www.mindfx.co.uk/collections/instant-downloads/products/springboard-physical-book-by-michael-murray

I've come across other stuff over the years but those immediately spring to mind. Of course you could expand that to routines where the spectator appears to demonstrate other types of psychic ability.

Michael Murray´s "Springboard" came to my mind first, too. Then Michael Vincent´s "Kismet"/"Updated".  John Carey has an easy version similar to Kismet,

One-Deck-Do-As-I-Do, on the Penguin lecture. And, if you want to turn a spectator into somewhat of an instant stooge, without him/her knowing why she/he

succeeds to find the chosen cards all the time, check Gary Kurtz´s "Sharing The Limelight". These come firstly to my mind...

Many prediction effects can be recast as the volunteer reading your mind: "I'm thinking of a number, and I've recorded my thought on this odd little bit of paper that my thumb is hidden behind.  Can you read the number in my mind?  What number did you get?  Well done!"

I don't see the difference between Diplopia and Tap-A-Lack. Seems like Cummins all the way. What is different about Diplopia??

Daniel Madison has a trick called Role Play on his Dangerous DVD Vol 1.  

The magician spreads the cards and the participant selects one.  After remembering the card it is then lost in the deck.  The participant then takes on the role of magician and spreads the deck for the magician, trying to force her selected card.  The magician selects a card.  The magician asks the participant to name her card.  The magician shows his selection to be that card.

Hi Mike.

I've PMed you something regarding this.

There are differences in method but I won't detail that here obviously. They start at the same point a borrowed, shuffled deck and finish at the same point but they don't follow the same path, similar but not identical. They rely  on the same main tool.

From the spectator or audience' point of view there is one notable difference.

In Tapalack the spectator is instructed by the magician to think of a card of a particular colour. In Diplopia the spectator is instructed to think of any of the 52 cards at the onset.
