APA and Center for Open Science Make Psychology Research More Open

The American Psychological Association (APA) teamed up with the Center for Open Science to give authors the option to use open science badges, create an APA repository for sharing content, and designate a preprint server for APA journal articles.

Open science badges will be offered to authors from a selection of APA journals who share their data or materials or preregister studies as ways to promote transparency in scientific research. More journals will provide this option in the future.

The APA data repository, hosted by the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework (OSF), will allow researchers to work privately with collaborators or make parts or their entire project publicly accessible. Research data, protocols, and materials will all be stored in the repository.

The OSF’s PsyArXiv will be the preferred preprint server for APA journals. The organizations plan to integrate some APA journals’ submission portals into the server. Authors can post working papers, unpublished work, and preprints, as well as revisions to posted documents and supplemental materials.

For more information, read the press release.
