<table width=95%><td><b>What is PsychWiki?</b> PsychWiki was created as a way to pool our field's collective resources on various topics. As a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki Wiki] ''anyone'' with access to the site can edit, correct, or update the information. Since it's creation, PsychWiki has served {{PAGEVIEWS}}. In a sense, PsychWiki is owned by the community, with input from anyone with experience and knowledge to share. You have to [[Special:Userlogin | login]] to make sure that this doesn't become a haven for spam, but once you've registered, you can click on the edit tab at the top of most pages to change them. Some of the pages are more developed then 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.</td></table>
