Resources for behavioural science research

Table of Contents

In this section I share curated links which I found useful and may interest people who want to learn more about open and responsible behavioural science research practices, dissemination and impact and tools for writing and conducting behavioural science research.

Resources for responsible research and open science

  • DoAJ: This is an independent index containing over 17 000 peer-reviewed, open access journals covering all areas of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, arts and humanities.
  • SIPS: a learned society which brings together scholars working to improve methods and practices in psychological science. All the resources from the last SIPS conference are available on the OSF website here. I recommend watching the videocast by Balazs Aczel, available here, starts at 18m30s.
  • RRBM: a virtual organisation dedicated to inspiring, encouraging, and supporting credible and useful research in the business and management disciplines. I encouraged anyone to read (and reflect on!) the principles of responsible science.
  • OSF: A free, open platform to support the management of research projects and enable collaboration. It is used by psychological scientists to share their materials and their data.
  • OSF Preprints: Free, open platform to share your working papers, with a doi via your Orcid account.
  • ORCID: ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (known as an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. I recommend watching this video to understand the potential of having and curating an ORCID ID.

Behavioural Science research tools I use

Behavioural Science tools which look promising (but I haven’t tested yet)…

  • formr: A framework allowing to create surveys with automated feedback and complex longitudinal experience-sampling studies using R.
  • jsPsych: a JavaScript library for running behavioral experiments in a web browser.
  • webgazer: Tutorial resource to embed an eye-tracking library called WebGazer within a JsPsych experiment.
