What is PsychWiki? PsychWiki was created as a way to pool our field's collective resources on various topics. 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.

Professional Development
Collaborative articles that allow us to pool our field's collective knowledge on topics such as Grant Funding, journals, conferences, how your publication record is evaluated, how to craft your C.V., How to survive in graduate school and etc.


Research Tools
Concrete research tools and articles to assist with conducting research and analyzing data such as Research Tips, Mediation, Meta-analysis, Interaction between continuous variables, Tips on internet research, Archives of data and stimuli, Internet Research FAQ and etc.


Psychology Concepts
Collaborative articles on topics, research areas, and concepts related to Social and Personality psychology such as Happiness, Aggression, Cross Categorization, Computational Modeling, and etc.


Virtual Lab Meeting
Why should geographical distance stop people with shared research interests from benefitting from all the advantages a traditional Lab Group has to offer, such as meeting to share research ideas, discuss how to improve research ideas/studies, receive feedback, collaborate on shared research projects, and etc.
Research pages: See some of the work done in various labs or share some of your own work.
Researchers pages: See other researchers webpages or start your own.
New Collaborations: In lab meetings people with shared research interests collaborate on new projects by discussing and brainstorming new ideas, materials, procedures, paradigms, and etc. With PsychWiki VLM you can collaborate at the level of the entire research field, not just your department/school.
Orphan Studies: "Orphan Studies" are projects you have started but can't finish for whatever reason. Why let those projects idly sit on your computer when there are researchers in your particular field who may want to collaborate. You have put in the effort to start the research project, so why not benefit from having someone who needs a project pick up where you left off. In lab meetings you could pass the project to another person and get authorship, so now you can do the same thing with someone at your Virtual Lab Meeting.

... to address the rapidly growing intersection of neuroscience and law, the Law and Neuroscience Project at UCSB received a three-year $10 million MacArthur Foundation grant to bring together social scientists and legal scholars to examine neuroscience applications to the practice of law. The initial focus is on three major research topics in criminal responsibility: Diminished Brains, Addiction, and Decision-making. There is also a Education and Outreach Program designed to inform the public through the media, and to provide training in relevant neuroscience for legal officials. In the next three years, the goals of the Project are to arrange conferences, produce scholarship, create course materials, and aid those doing interdisciplinary research on neuroscience and the law.                  → more "Did You Know"s...

Love Styles: U.S vs. Japan
Love is one of the central topics over the past several decades in social psychology and there have been several studies focusing on the qualitative differences between liking and love as well as the unique typology of love. One important question found in the literature on love styles is whether they are apparent across cultures. How does American love styles compare and contrast with Japanese love styles? Moreover, in today’s technological and pop culture world, how does America love styles influenced Japan and other countries?   (More...)

news and updates
  • January 25th, 2007
    We added a new feature called "Short Titles" where you can use simpler article names in the URL as an alternative to the normal naming system. For example, the PsychWiki page on aggression is "http://www.psychwiki.com/wiki/Aggression" but you can also access it now by "aggression.psychwiki.com"
  • November 19th, 2007
    We installed a new footnote function so that you can use footnoting to make it easier for the reader to find relevant information. See the Help! section about how to footnote.
  • August 1st, 2007
    In order to improve the "search" function, we installed "case sensitivity" so that the search function will try to capitalize all words in a string if it does not get a match with regular case sensitivity.
  • January 4th, 2007
    We upgraded the Mediawiki software to provide more functionality to the site. Let us know if you see any errors or bugs caused by the upgrade.
  • September 9th, 2006
    We created a new editing tool where putting double brackets around text that ends in a "date" creates a link to Google Scholar: for example, typing this: [[Baron and Kenny, 1986]], creates this: (Baron and Kenny, 1986).
