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 Data papers may describe datasets from unpublished work or from papers published previously in a traditional journal.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.
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. In essence, we will commit to working with researchers to publish attempts to reproduce analyses published using data from papers in our pages. We expect this to be of great benefit to evidence the accessibility of the data we publish about, highlight consistent areas of poor-quality sharing that would be of benefit to our community, and provide rewards within the current incentive scheme for researchers who attempt to reproduce (and perhaps extend) the analyses of others.
