Research Integrity and Open Science in Psychology Research
Guest Editor: Pieter Van Dessel
Research integrity can be defined as a type of behavior that is directed at scientific goals (i.e., goals that facilitate scientific advancement). One important component of research integrity is open science which involves making scientific research, data, and dissemination accessible. Though research integrity and open science have become hot topics in psychological science, there are several important challenges and obstacles. The aim of this special issue is to discuss recent developments and outstanding issues in this domain and to provide guidelines that researchers can use to improve the openness and integrity of their research. We invite papers that focus on research integrity, ethical issues in psychological research and open science.
Prospective authors should read the information here about submitting to the journal. The submission deadline is 15th February 2019.
