We would be particularly interested to hear from individuals or groups who would like to extract from the database a formal, structured ontology (information science) to contribute to the semantic web project and to explore automated systems of information management within our discipline.
For controversial topics, it would be great to know how much scientific consensus there is at any time for all sides of an issue. Canonizer.com is being developed with the goal of measuring scientific consensus on such issues. If survey topics have not yet been created for particular controversial issues, they can be created, and links to them added on related articles showing the current measure of scientific consensus on all sides of any issue.

We always need general help and this is a good place to start if you are new and dont want to start by writing articles.
These are good tasks to do if you have only 10-20 minutes to spare.
If you dont know which article to work on click on "random page" link on the left.
We are aiming at completeness in our referencing. For each article collect together all relevant references. Follow APA style guidelines.
Linking references to full text
This is a key activity linking our knowledge to the evidence base in a way that is accessible to all. Use search engines to locate copies of papers and link to them.
Adding ISBN numbers to book references.
Go to a site like Amazon to identify ISBN. Copy it to the end of the book reference. Remove the colon so it reads ISBN xxxx and the software will do the rest. This will become increasingly important as libraries link their catalogue systems together and will enable us to locate books worldwide.
Linking book titles to Book details page
Put link around book title. Then copy Book record card into the linked blank page and fill in details.
Correct spelling and punctuation.
This help is always useful and adds to the professional appearance of the site.
Remove unneeded links
As the articles have been copied from Wikipedia they contain links to places, to general categories of things (human beings, animals, centuries etc) or to non-psychological categories that we do not need on this site. You can help by taking away the pairs of square brackets around these words to remove the link.
Remove inappropriate content
Some of the articles copied from Wikipedia contain information not relevant to an academic psychology site and this can be deleted.
