Last week I attended the annual COAR meeting held in Madrid and organised by DIGITAL.CSIC. It was by all accounts an exceptional event marked by two important reasons for celebration: being the first International post-pandemic face-to-face meeting and receiving a significant grant to continue the development of the Notify Project.
Some highlights from a survey asking 875 research academics living and working in Spain for their views on how important a selection of 39 different criteria should be in the evaluation of candidates’ research CVs in a recruitment process.
We announce the relaunch of Psicológica, the journal of the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX), as a Diamond Open Access journal published exclusively on DIGITAL.CSIC, the institutional repository of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).
We are exited to announce a new position for an enthusiastic and creative postdoctoral researcher interested in collaborating with our research group at the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center (CIMCYC) in the beautiful city of Granada.
Being a big fan of Douglas Adams and his historical pentalogy, I always wanted to give a talk or write an article with this title. The opportunity arose last week after an invitation to give a talk at the psychology department of NYU. Here are the slides and a video of the talk.
Last week, researchers at the University of Granada received an email from the director of the University Library, announcing a new agreement with the publishers Elsevier and Wiley. Here I comment on some of the consequences of these deals, called “transformative agreements”, which are important to understand before deciding whether to use this new “service for researchers”.
Here are the slides of my presentation at the 2021 virtual conference organised by the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX). In this invited talk I had the opportunity to present the new publication model of the society’s journal, Psicológica. A lot more to come on this project after the imminent official launch of the journal, so stay tuned!
In this post I explain why I only accept peer review assignments by journal editors when they agree to publish my signed review next to the reviewed research work.
Information about the CoVidAffect project that we launched during the Covid-19 lockdown to monitor real-time mood variations in the Spanish territory.
A brief post that explains the reasons why I stopped using and supporting bioRxiv.
