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 Data papers may describe datasets from unpublished work or from papers published previously in a traditional journal.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.
The Journal of Open Psychology Data is pleased to introduce its new Editors in Chief: Débora Maehler and Thomas Rhys Evans.
Débora is Head of the Research Data Center (RDC) for the Program for International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) at GESIS - Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences. She is also a member of the Consortium for the Social, Behavioral, Educational and Economic Sciences, and part of the German Committee for Data Access (FDI), which, among others, aims to continuously improve the safeguarding and availability of research data in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences. In her role as Co-Editor, Débora will bring in her experience working with international large-scale assessment data.
Tom is an Associate Professor in Occupational Psychology at the University of Greenwich, UK. Tom has a background of examining the social and emotional aspects of work, applying Occupational Psychology to the Fire Service context, and particularly enjoys adopting a collaborative and critical approach to addressing big societal issues. Tom’s current research focuses on using meta-psychology and open science practices to improve the quality of evidence created within psychology communities and to help drive that into greater social impact. As Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Open Psychology Data, Tom is passionate about increasing the transparency and accessibility of science and he welcomes all those interested in the same to collaborate and become involved with our journal community.
