Why have "my psychwiki" in psychology?
 +
* '''Stand-alone pages''' - PsychWiki was created by psychologists for the psychology user community to use for whatever professional purpose they wish (such as creating free class websites, lab group websites, collaborate notes, etc. see below for more examples)
 +
* '''Linked pages''' - In the online age "You are Your Web Presence" given that search engines other than PscyINFO are a starting point for seeing psychologists' web pages, lab pages, research pages, and so forth. Online publicizing is the natural extension of why everyone already goes to conferences and submits to journals.
 +
* '''New types of feedback''' - A wiki is uniquely situated to disseminate previously inaccessible information such as feedback about research ideas/designs, comments on published works, discussion of theoretical ideas/papers...
-
*Stand-alone pages.
 
-
Not every page has to be linked or seen by everyone. PsychWiki was created by psychologists for psychologists so the purpose of PsychWiki is for the professional user community to use for whatever professional purpose they wish.

Why have "hubs" in psychology?
+
-
* Information in psychology is currently decentralized in databases, on the web, conference booklets, filedrawers, researchers websites, school websites, etc.
+
-
* Much information is also not posted anywhere such as feedback, comments about research, discussion, helpful advice, critiques, etc.
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
How to use "hubs"?
+
-
* '''Categories''' -- We have already created categories for major concepts in Psychology, such as [[:Category:Research|Research]], [[:Category:People|People]], [[Psychology Concepts]], [[:Category:Null Findings|Null Findings]], [[:Category:Virtual Lab Meeting|Virtual Lab Meeting]]. Click on each category to see how to use it, or see the [[How to use Categories | summary of how to use each category]] page.
+
-
* '''Individual Pages''' -- You can also create "hubs" around individual pages. See the following for how to create hubs and how to use each one:
+
<table border=0 cellspacing=15 cellpadding=5>
<table border=0 cellspacing=15 cellpadding=5>

<tr><td style="background-color: #EFEFEF;" valign=top>

:The "hub" could be focused around:
+
:&rArr; their classes &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ([[Research_Design_Fall_2007|example]])
-
:&rArr; a person &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font size=2>([[What is a "hub"?|see examples]] and how to create your own "personal" hub)</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
