The Journal of Open Psychology Data (JOPD) publishes peer-reviewed data papers describing psychology datasets with high reuse potential. Data papers may describe datasets from unpublished work or from papers published previously in a traditional journal. We welcome submissions from all areas of psychology including replication research, qualitative research and meta-research. We hope to reward authors for sharing datasets according to FAIR principles, providing structure for the data and papers to be citable, and for reuse to be tracked.
We really value the contributions of our community, and as such we’ve now signed up to a brand-new initiative to recognise those who support us. We are happy to announce a new Reviewer Discount trial, where we offer a 30% APC discount to authors who have completed a review for us in the 12 months prior to submission. This brings our APC down from £450 to just £315! To secure this discount, you need to complete a review on time and to the quality expected by our Editors, and to acknowledge this (noting the article title and review date) in your cover letter when submitting to the journal. We hope this goes some way to express our thanks to all those individuals who invest their time to help the work published in our pages to be the highest quality it can be. If you have any questions about this trial please contact the Editors!

In a commitment to continue progress not only in the openness of data but also in the quality of sharing, the journal now accepts Verification Reports from all areas of psychology. Expanding our initial remit of evaluating data only published in our pages, we now commit to working with researchers to publish attempts to reproduce analyses published from empirical data originating from any publication/journal within psychology. We expect this to be of great benefit to increase the accessibility of psychological data, learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of current data sharing practices, and provide a incentivised opportunity for researchers to reproduce (and perhaps extend) the analyses of others. Comprehensive guidelines and a submission template can be found here: https://openpsychologydata.metajnl.com/about/verification-reports
