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. Since it's creation, PsychWiki has served 59,656,199. In a sense, PsychWiki is owned by the community, with input from anyone with experience and knowledge to share. 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. 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, Interaction between continuous variables 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.

Researchers pages
See other researchers webpages or start your own.

Research pages
See some of the work done in various labs or share some of your own work.

PsychWiki Review

Null Findings

Orphan Studies
This is a collection of unpublished single-study findings. If you have a significant result that you would like feedback on, are unsure about, or simply do not plan on following up and publishing but still want to share, then feel free to post the finding here.

New Feature

Graduate Student Survey
Have you ever wondered how you compare to other graduate students in terms of number of publications, posters, level of stress or debt, etc.? We are currently conducting a nationwide survey of graduate students to find out about graduate school experiences across the different years in programs (e.g., 1st year, 2nd year, etc).

*Please note that the full results from the study will be submitted for publication shortly, but until then partial results from the survey will be updated every Sunday until the survey is completed.

... the Relationship Researchers Interest Group (RRIG) within Society for Personality and Social Psychology presents an annual award to a relatively new investigator who has made an original and important contributions to relationship research. The recipient of this award will be invited to give an award address at the 2008 SPSP Close Relationships Preconference. The primary selection criterion is an outstanding record of original research in the general area of close relationships. Because this award recognizes a new investigator, nominees will typically have received their PhD within the past 8 years, and will most often be Assistant Professors. Nominations can be sent electronically to Nancy Collins, co-chair of the 2008 RRIG Awards Committee. The deadline is July 15, 2007.


  Article of the Month:    Interaction between continuous variables

Interactions - Statistical programs, like SPSS, do not always have "point-and-click" commands for every possible statistical test. This page is a description of how to test the interaction between two continuous variables. Two approaches are described: (1) steps to conduct the interaction using commands in SPSS, and (2) Interaction! software that tests statistical analysis between dichotomous, categorical and continuous variables while also ploting the graphics for the interactions. Learn why and how to center variables, to create interaction terms, and to conduct multiple regression analysis... (More...)
