Chambers, C.: The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology: A Manifesto for Reforming the Culture of Scientific Practice (Hardcover and eBook) | Princeton University Press
"Psychological science has made extraordinary discoveries about the human mind, but can we trust everything its practitioners are telling us? In recent years, it has become increasingly apparent that a lot of research in psychology is based on weak evidence, questionable practices, and sometimes even fraud. The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology diagnoses the ills besetting the discipline today and proposes sensible, practical solutions to ensure that it remains a legitimate and reliable science in the years ahead. In this unflinchingly candid manifesto, Chris Chambers draws on his own experiences as a working scientist to reveal a dark side to psychology that few of us ever see. Using the seven deadly sins as a metaphor, he shows how practitioners are vulnerable to powerful biases that undercut the scientific method, how they routinely torture data until it produces outcomes that can be published in prestigious journals, and how studies are much less reliable than advertised. He reveals how a culture of secrecy denies the public and other researchers access to the results of psychology experiments, how fraudulent academics can operate with impunity, and how an obsession with bean counting creates perverse incentives for academics. Left unchecked, these problems threaten the very future of psychology as a science—but help is here. Outlining a core set of best practices that can be applied across the sciences, Chambers demonstrates how all these sins can be corrected by embracing open science, an emerging philosophy that seeks to make research and its outcomes as transparent as possible."

MPSOpenData
"Funded by the National Science Foundation, this workshop series will generate discipline-specific responses from the Mathematical and Physical Sciences research communities to the federal policy requiring open data and the recently-released NSF policy statement on open data. In order to decide how and what to preserve for public consumption, and in what manner the data will be stored and accessed, a series of dialogues is required. Discussions within individual disciplines must reach a consensus on data preservation procedures and data access guidelines consistent with discipline-specific expectations for data re-use, access policies, and the level of burden implied by conservation that is placed on the individual investigator."

Rebecca Tuvel, Amy Cuddy, and “bullying” in academia.
Proposes an interesting overlap between reactions to Rebecca Tuval paper on transracialism and Amy Cuddy on power poses. Who is defending whom and why? What role do senior scholars play?
