List of prior "New Features" in reverse chronological order...

May 6th, 2007 - 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.

February 26th, 2007 - Comment Form

We created an interactive Comment Form so that people can submit questions, comments, or suggestions directly to us (the admins) either anonymously or by providing an email address if they would like a response. We are also using that Comment Form so that people can "Nominate an Article" for the "Featured Article of the Month" on the Main Page.

October, 22nd, 2006 - Organizing Framework

We posted an organizing framework that serves as an organizing principle for the Psychology Concepts section. The Organizing Framework page discusses how creating a taxonomy of the Person and the Situation would be helpful to both the lay person and psychology researchers in providing a common structure for integrating topics within psychology, and providing a road map for researchers to travel that highlights important topics, new relationships, and unanswered research questions.

September, 23nd, 2006 - ResearchTemplates

Have you ever wanted your own webpage but didn't have the time/money to learn about obtaining a domain name, hosting, webdesign, HTML code, FTP, and etc. Wiki software makes it free/easy to create your own page, and it also allows interlinking to internal links about the type of research you conduct (see Psychology Concepts), links to your department homepage and your collaborators, and the ability to upload documents like your C.V. or research papers. In the Researchers section we have an "Add a Page" box where you can type in your name and it automatically creates a webpage for you that will be linked to the Researchers section. We also created "Researcher Templates" that you can copy/paste into your webpage if you want a more dynamic look to your webpage. We created a Researcher Template Guide and five Research Templates.

September 9th, 2006 - Google Scholar

We created a new editing tool where putting double brackets around text that ends in a "date" creates a link to Google Scholar. For example, typing this: [[Baron and Kenny, 1986]], creates this: (Baron and Kenny, 1986). "Google Scholar" is a freely-accessible web search engine that indexes the full-text of scholarly literature (including theses, books, abstracts and articles) across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.
