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.
In our recently published paper we investigate whether cardiovascular fitness or the type of sport activity practiced is more important for improving alertness. Read the post for a non-technical description of the results and their importance.
Summary and slides from the talk I gave on June 13th at the Psychology department of the University of Seville.
I have used the OSF platform to publish my teaching material (in Spanish) for the undergraduate course in statistics I gave this year at the Loyola University. The material was based on the book “Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences” by Susan A. Nolan and Thomas E. Heinzen (second edition) and was largely inspired by available material from Erin Michelle Buchanan, Tabetha Gaile Hopke, and Simone Donaldson.
Last Friday I participated in a round table discussing Open Science practices and their relevance for addressing the crisis of replicability in Psychology.
