Why have a KnowledgeBase for psychology?


How to use the KnowledgeBase?


For example, a wiki is uniquely suited to:

  • bringing together experienced viewpoints and opinions
  • allowing users to ask questions of experts
  • pooling how the field as a whole treats different issues
  • sharing common practices/guidelines within community
  • capturing 'experiential' knowledge
  • codifying 'tacit' or 'implicit' knowledge
  • providing a forum of advice from hard-won insights
  • locating new/existing solutions to current problems
  • helping individuals avoid having to 're-invent the wheel'
  • imparting newly developed and up-to-date advances
  • creating an ever-expanding compendium of info/links
  • creating repositories of data/stimuli for collective use
  • sharing concrete tools for doing research/statistics


Unlike a traditional static website, a wiki offers the ability to pool our collective knowledge because anyone in the field can edit the webpages and add what they know. Now everyone can benefit from the experiences/knowledge of each other.
