Bits BoxEdit

This page consists of junk left over from Mostly Zen's editing that he didn't want to lose but had cut links from, or had cut out from other editing. Its all here in no particular order. Eventually these bits will either be recycled, reused or else deleted. Mostly Zen 14:41, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

The Future of Paid for contentEdit

We feel that the manner in which Psychology knowledge is paid for an distributed is perhaps outdated in the internet age. Researchers and institutions need to be rewarded for their efforts in terms of funding, but the restrictive nature of publishing articles in a journal with subscription fees prevents the free access to that knowledge, and hinders our discipline from evolving, or even being fully understood. How many institutions have access to all journal papers, ever published?

In the future, we predict that psychology knowledge will be paid for in a manner analogous to the current new business models for purchasing music (buying 1 mp3 at a time, as desired). In this way, a single interesting article in pdf format, relevant to ones research, could be purchased for a small amount of currency, as desired.

This contrasts with the current larger amounts of currency spent on a 12 month subscription for a journal, which may contain many articles/research that are not specifically desired.

Stuff to useEdit





Even if you are experienced on Wikipedia, I suggest you read our beginners guide, as we do a lot of things differently on the Psychology Wiki.

It is important to understand that the pages of Wikipedia reproduced here are used as placeholders. We expect 2/3rds of them to be substantially editied or rewritten so do feel free to change them markedly to fit the needs of the site.

Tip: you can sign your username on talk pages (like this one) using four tildes ~~~~; this will automatically produce your name, date and time-stamp. Three tildes will just produce your name.

If you have any questions, please contact one of our Administrators.

Collaboration of the MonthEdit

As we grow we may start fortnighly or weekly collaborations. For the time being we are choosing one article a month to collectively improve. Once the article is of a good standard, it will become our featured article, and we will move on to a different project.

Help edit Depression, the Psychology Wiki's current collaboration of the month! Please help to bring it up to featured article standard.

You can still help with last months's article, Brain injury:Recovery , or help pick next month's article.


Suggested articles to ImproveEdit

Many articles imported from Wikipedia are for the general reader and the challenge now is to upgrade them to an academic standard.

You should aim to write/improve an article to a standard suitable for undergraduates. More advanced articles can then be written seperately and referenced in this article later.

Have a go at improving the quality of these articles, by re-writing, adding academic references, tidying up internal links and adding external links.

If you have any suggestions of articles to improve then please add them to this list.
