Psychology Wiki

aka A Wikia Contributor

Hello, and welcome to the project,

We would like contributions to be of a professional, scientific, and reliable nature. To that end we encourage users to register and use their real identity. While this is not a current requirement of participation on the Psychology Wiki, we believe that by registering and being identified, we can engage in more collaborative, fruitful, and professional exchanges.

Would you like to register and have a username? It would help us to be able to talk to you and remember you if you had a permanent name instead of just a number!

It also allows you to choose the 'skin' for your page. (Choosing Monobook skin in your preferences greatly improves the professional layout of pages)

Here are some useful links we leave for all new contributors:


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.


Re your changes on Elizabeth Loftus I have some difficulties with the latest additions. As this is a professional site we have to be particulalry careful about the quality of references used. I dont think the Skeptical Inquirer is an appropriate source. Can you improve on the referencing. How do we know Elizabeth has been involved in hundreds of cases? The contribution is welcome but needs tightening to professional standards. What criticism has been voiced in the psychological literature about her work? Dr Joe Kiff 17:44, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
