There are other Psychology websites out there, so why should you care about this one? First, it's a Wiki! What does that mean? Basically, it's a collaborative site. Anyone can edit any page on this site. You have to 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. Second, there is a wonderful opportunity for more organized collaboration to increase benefit to the field in various areas. 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., and etc.

Research Tools
Tools and articles to assist with conducting research and analyzing data such as Research Tips, Mediation, Meta-analysis, 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.

Share Your Research
See some of the work done in various labs or share some of your own work. We have a section on researchers and on sharing research.

  Article of the Month:   Mediation

"The Baron & Kenny method is the one most often used but has some limitations, the Sobel test is more accurate but has low statistical power, and Bootstrapping is the preferred method because it's the only test that doesn't violate assumptions of normality. Posted below is an explanation of each method, including links to SPSS and SAS marcros developed by Preacher and Hayes that do everything you need because they provide output simultaneously for the (1) Baron & Kenny method, (2) sobel method, and (3) bootstrapping method."    (More...)
