Join the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS)!

A new society was recently formed with the aim of bringing together scholars working together to improve methods and practices in psychological science.  The Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS) is open to anyone interested in improving psychological research – we welcome people of all sub-disciplines, career stages, geographical regions, and levels of expertise with regard to research methods.
Our first meeting in June 2016 had 100 attendees, many of them early career researchers, who worked together to create various projects and voted to officially form a society.  We now have over 450 people on our mailing list, and would love to add anyone who is interested in getting involved or wants to be kept in the loop on SIPS projects.
To join our mailing list and view some of our ongoing projects (including PsyArXiv, the new psychology preprint server), visit the SIPS website.  You can also see the mission and values statement for more information about the goals of SIPS.  Finally, the next SIPS meeting will be held July 30 to August 1, 2017, in Charlottesville Virginia (USA).  Sign up for the mailing list to be kept up to date about the conference and other SIPS activities.
