From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
How to use this section?
- What is a Virtual Lab Meeting? Why should geographical distance stop people with shared research interests from benefitting from all the advantages a traditional Lab Group has to offer, such as meeting to share research ideas, discuss how to improve research ideas/studies, receive feedback, collaborate on shared research projects, and etc. A Virtual Lab Meeting parallels all the functions of a traditional in-person Lab Meeting, except now researchers from other schools and departments can take part.
- Collaborate on new projects: Lab meetings are helpful for collaborating on projects by discussing and brainstorming new ideas, materials, procedures, paradigms, and etc. With PsychWiki VLM you can collaborate at the level of the entire research field, not just your department/school. How many people do research on the specific subject(s) that you do research on? Here is a place where you can create a collaborative central web page for your niche research community. For examples, see Conceptions of Justice/Fairness Scale, and Goal Taxonomy
- Create Review Articles: A new way to create 'Review Articles' collectively because the wiki technology allows multiple people to add/edit the same page. People post relevant findings and whether they support or refute the main idea, and these posts can be updated and revised over time. For examples, see Glucose Review Article
- Solicit feedback and brainstorm new ideas: New theoretical ideas benefit from collective insight from multiple experts to help fully develop the idea. There are many more colleagues with shared research interests and expertise beyond just your department/school. With a wiki you can access our larger field of experts who have common research interests or expertise on the subject matter . For examples, see Progressing a Paradigm Shift in Psychometrics and Creating a Learning Society: What have Organisational Psychologists to Offer?
- Post "Orphan Studies" which are projects you have started but do not plan on finishing for whatever reason. Why let those projects idly sit on your computer when there are researchers in your particular field who may want to collaborate. You have put in the effort to start the research project, so why not benefit from having someone who needs a project pick up where you left off. In lab meetings you could pass the project to another person and get authorship, so maybe now you will with someone at your Virtual Lab Meeting. If you have a project you have started but can't finish, 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.
- Get advice on your research idea or research design: When conducting new research presenting your idea to a lab group provides advice and suggestions about appropriate ways to implement the idea, but what if you could get similar advice from those experts in your same field that are geographically distant. They are going to be the same people who review your submitted work after the data is collected, so why not get their advice BEFORE the data is collected to avert preventable problems. Use PsychWiki VLM to gain access to the larger field of experts on your topic to provide comments on the hypotheses or methodology of your new project.
fyi - if you have ideas for new sections to add to the VLM, the site admins are always looking for more great ideas.
How does this work? Create a new page (see "Add page" box below) and announce it to your research colleagues or let others find it here. The new page is a centralized document that is updated as new information is integrated. The "history" tab at the top of each page contains the recent edits for that page so that you can see each addition. You can also receive email notifications when pages change by clicking on this function in the "preferences" tab.
How to create your new page? Create your new page by using the box below. The page title is the title of the project or your name/year. Type information into the new page as you would with any type of Word processing document. Then click "Save page". If you leave the category tag at the bottom of the page, then a link to your page will automatically be created here.
