if you read my blog, you might think everything is shit and we might as well go drink whiskey and play euchre. that's definitely plan b. but for now, i'm sticking with plan a: SIPS.* you should come, too.
Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS)**
June 6-8th, 2016
Center for Open Science, Charlottesville, VA
SIPS is a new group created to bring together scholars working to improve methods and practices in psychological science. The aim of the inaugural meeting is to generate ideas, goals, and actionable plans to improve psychological science, including:
-Improving the training and research practices in psychological science
-Improving institutional practices to incentivize better scientific practices (e.g., journals, societies, departments, and universities)
-Conducting meta-science, empirical tests of reforms, and critical self-evaluation
-Outreach within and outside psychology (including attention to diversity)
The meeting will be a dynamic agenda of very brief presentations, open discussion, break-out work, and action planning. We have a draft agenda here.
If you're interested in coming, sign up here!
Because of practical constraints, registration is limited to approximately 60 participants for the inaugural meeting. Beyond the organizing team, registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis and we will create a wait-list should interest exceed capacity.
