Below are a list of research opportunities that may be of interest to Psi Chi members. These projects have been vetted by the Research Advisory Committee and represent projects that are likely to be accessible to Psi Chi members.
Research Studies Looking for Collaborators
The Emerging Adulthood Measured at Multiple Institutions project invites researchers to contribute local samples (80 < N < 150) to an online survey that replicates and extends research questions about Emerging Adulthood. Instructors and their students could use this as course-based research. Contributors will have access to the data upon project completion and will be listed as authors on meta-project manuscript besides other authorship opportunities. Visit the EAMMi2 project page or long invitation.
Crowdsourced Prepublication Independent Replication (PPIR) Project Based in Methods Classes
The Pipeline Project 2 is recruiting graduate and undergraduate methods classes to conduct student replications of unpublished findings volunteered by the original authors. Course instructors and students will receive coauthors on the final project report. If interested, please see HERE.
ISP Extension Part 2
Researchers are invited to join this International Situations Project Extension to examine how situational experiences correlate with reports of behaviors, personality, and values. These relationships will be compared across different U.S. regions and ethnicities. Learn more HERE or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Many Labs 5 will test pre-data collection peer review as an intervention to improve reproducibility. The project will conduct multiple replications of studies from the Reproducibility Project: Psychology, comparing replication rates of studies that have gone through formal peer review to those that have not. Learn how to join HERE.
Other Research Opportunities
Collaborative Replications and Education Project (CREP)
Contributors of the first five replications from each CREP selected study will be eligible for a CREP Research Award ranging from $300–$500 (sponsored by Psi Chi and the Center for Open Science, COS). To participate, please contact Jon Grahe at email@example.com.
The $1,000,000 Preregistration Challenge
Preregistration increases the credibility of hypothesis testing by confirming in advance what will be analyzed and reported. For the Preregistration Challenge, 1,000 researchers will win $1,000 each for publishing results of preregistered research. Watch the intro video, explore the background information, and click “Begin a Preregistration” to launch the guided tutorial to plan your next study!
