Psychological science should be a truly global discipline and psychologists should be poised to understand human behavior in any kind of context, whether it is urban or rural, developed or underdeveloped, WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic) or nonWEIRD. To arrive there, we need to ensure that 1) researchers from those different contexts areContinue reading “How open science can advance African psychology: Lessons from the inside”
Dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic: can self-administered mindfulness help against the stress from lockdown?
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak had a massive impact on our lives. The lockdown obliged us to an abrupt change of habits by bringing severe limitations of personal freedoms. The measures taken against COVID-19, such as the lockdown, may well affect people’s mental health. A general population survey in the United Kingdom (with over
Starting in October 2019, I – Olivier – have gone to the Netherlands twice to record the peripheral temperature of partners in couple therapy. In a previous blog post, I explained the basic dynamics of romantic relationships and how couples can enhance their feelings of connection and safety through Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). In thisContinue reading “Temperature responsiveness during Hold Me Tight weekends: A new chapter for EFT?”
I – Olivier – am a PhD student. My research is in social psychology. However, the end goal of my thesis is to improve how responsive couples are towards each other after they go through relationship therapy. Diving into relationship therapy is a big step for a research-focused social psychologist. To try to improve partnerContinue reading “Engaging with EFT as a Social Psychologist”
With the Covid19 crisis our life and our habits have completely changed. At least for a foreseeable amount of time, it will not be feasible to attend courses in person. As a result, many people are starting to move their courses online. If you want to publish your courses online, there are several ways toContinue reading “Posting a course via GitHub to your own blog”
Vous trouverez ici les chapitres du manuel pour apprendre à utiliser R et RStudio. Le manuel est écrit par Lisa DeBruine et traduit en français par Fabrice Gabarrot, Brice Beffara-Bret, Mae Braud, Marie Delacre, Zoé Lackner, Ladislas Nalborczyk et Cédric Batailler.
If your ambition is to become a scientist and an expert in a specific research area one path is more efficient than many others. The one that we think will make you an expert quickest is the writing of a meta-analysis. This path is very different from one involving primary research, but it will allowContinue reading “Why any researcher should start their career with a meta-analysis”
In the past few weeks, a humanitarian, social, and economic disaster has been unfolding because of COVID19. To stop the virus from spreading, people have been asked to engage in social distancing. Based on what we know so far this is a wise decision and we encourage everyone to engage in social distancing, too. AtContinue reading “Love in the times of COVID – help us support physically isolated people”
The goals of AfricArXiv include fostering community among African researchers, facilitate collaborations between African and non-African researchers, and raise the profile of African research on the international stage. These goals align with the goals of a different organization, the Psychological Science Accelerator (PSA). This post describes how these goals align and argues that joining the Psychological ScienceContinue reading “Why African researchers should join the Psychological Science Accelerator”
In November 2019, Tal Yarkoni set psychology Twitter ablaze with a fiery preprint, “The Generalizability Crisis” (Yarkoni, 2019). Written with direct, pungent language, the paper fired a direct salvo at the inappropriate breadth of claims in scientific psychology, arguing that the inferential statistics presented in papers are essentially meaningless due to their excessive breadth andContinue reading “Science for Science Reformers”
As scientists, we often hope that science self-corrects. But several researchers have suggested that the self-corrective nature of science is a myth (see e.g., Estes, 2012; Stroebe et al., 2012). If science is self-correcting, we should expect that, when a large replication study finds a result that is different from a smaller original study, theContinue reading “Examining whether science self-corrects using citations of replication studies”
This blog was written to originally appear in “Le Monde” and so was initially aimed at the French public. However, people from all countries can sign to show their support for the integration of open science into grants and hiring practices. The French version is first, after which the English version follows. If you wantContinue reading “La société devrait exiger davantage des scientifiques : lettre ouverte à la population française”
The Co-Re Lab is part of the Laboratoire Inter-universitaire de Psychologie Personnalité, Cognition, Changement Social (LIP/PC2S) at Université Grenoble Alpes. In France, “laboratoire” or “labo” (laboratory) is used for what researchers in the Anglo-Saxon world would call “department”. During our labo meeting yesterday one of the agenda points was to vote on the following statement:Continue reading “Our department/labo will add a standard open science statement to all its job ads!”
Many Labs 4: Failure to Replicate Mortality Salience Effect With and Without Original Author Involvement
December 10th, 2019. Richard Klein, Tilburg University; Christine Vitiello, University of Florida; Kate A. Ratliff, University of Florida. This is a repost from the Center for Open Science’s blog. We present results from Many Labs 4, which was designed to investigate whether contact with original authors and other experts improved replication rates for a complex psychological paradigm.Continue reading “Many Labs 4: Failure to Replicate Mortality Salience Effect With and Without Original Author Involvement”
We study co-regulation in romantic relationships. We study social thermoregulation. We do meta-science. We rely on open science ideals. We collaborate with researchers around the world, but are located at the Université Grenoble Alpes.
