Free Webinar: Psychological science: Innovations in the dissemination of information

Join us on 7 May at 1:00 p.m. EDT as Aime Ballard-Wood, Director of Publications for the Association for Psychological Science (APS), discusses recent efforts for heightened dissemination of psychological science research involving APS’s journals, the Open Science Framework, and Wikipedia.


Each of these efforts illustrates APS’s dedication to finding new ways to leverage technological advances to improve research practices and disseminate science:

  • The journal Psychological Science has implemented new guidelines to promote robust research and encourage transparency through practices that include data and material sharing and preregistration of study design.
  • Perspectives on Psychological Science has introduced Registered Replication Reports, a new type of article that presents the results of multicenter replication studies facilitated by the Open Science Framework, an open-source software project enabling open collaboration in scientific research.
  • APS’s Wikipedia Initiative is enlisting experts and their students to deploy the power of Wikipedia to represent scientific psychology as fully and as accurately as possible and thereby promote the free teaching of psychology worldwide.

SAGE is the proud publisher of the Association for Psychological Science journals and the sponsor of this Webinar.
