Social Psychological and Personality Science is now accepting submissions for a forthcoming special issue on “New developments in research methods for social/personality psychology.”
Recent advances in research design (e.g., crossed designs; Westfall, Kenny, & Judd, 2014), analysis (e.g., Bayesian approaches; Wagenmakers et al., under review), and meta-science (e.g., p-curve; Simonsohn, Simmons, & Nelson, in press) have opened up new possibilities for improving research methods in social and personality psychology.
We are looking to collect a number of high quality articles that address one or more of the following goals:
• Present new methods for the design, collection, or analysis of social/personality studies
• Present existing, underused methods in a new, more accessible way that will encourage their adoption, when appropriate, by social/personality researchers
• Present empirical evidence concerning the utility, strengths, and limitations of social/personality research methods (including meta-science)
As usual, articles cannot exceed 5,000 words (excluding tables, figures, and references) and preference will be given to articles that are written to be accessible to a wide range of audiences.
Deadline for submissions: August 31, 2016
