WIKIMEDIA, ALMONROTHWith the launch of PsyArXiv, some psychologists have embraced the preprint service trend, joining their colleagues in physical sciences (arXiv), biology (bioRxiv), social science (SocArXiv), engineering (engrXiv), and chemistry (chemRxiv).
As of today (August 17), PsyArXiv’s temporary home is hosting around 35 manuscripts, some of which have already been downloaded hundreds of times. Open-access advocate Brian Nosek, director of the Center for Open Science and a University of Virginia researcher, is calling for psychologists to post their preprints to the site. “The @PsyArXiv preprints service - released! Share yours at: http://osf.io/view/psyarxiv #openscience,” he posted to Twitter on Monday (August 15).
