What is PsychWiki? PsychWiki was created by psychologists as a tool for psychologists (see list of uses). As a Wiki anyone with access to the site can edit, correct, or update the information. In a sense, PsychWiki is owned by the community, with input from anyone with experience and knowledge to share. Some of the pages are more developed than others, but no page is complete. If you feel like you'd like to add something to a particular page, please do so. To get things started, we plan on beginning with the topics listed below.

If you are new to PsychWiki, see How/Why Use PsychWiki? and the "Getting Started" box below.
