Call For Papers

Call for papers: Crises in psychology - When people researching people goes wrong
From June 6-8, 2013, Nashville, TN

Psychology has recently seen a number of high-profile lapses in research and professional ethics. Recent controversies have centered around data fraud in social psychology and ape cognition, potentially questionable techniques in neuroscience, and the association between psychology and the questioning of detained combatants.
This peer-review panel the Christian Scholars’ Conference seeks to discuss recent issues in psychological ethics, to find ways to encourage institutions to maintain best practices, and to explore the techniques for uncovering data fraud.

Papers will be sought on the following topics:
1. Analyses of recent cases of fraud in psychology
2. The systemic pressures and practices that allow for fraud to occur
3. Cultural and intrapersonal determinants of fraud
4. Statistical techniques for detecting fraud as well as their efficacy and potential pitfalls
5. The responses of professional organizations to these challenges
6. Methods for correcting the culture and practice of psychology

Please email abstracts of approximately 250 words to J. P. Gerber by January 19, 2013. There should be no identifying references to the author(s) within the manuscript. Abstracts will undergo blind review and participants will be notified by February 2, 2013 of the status of their submission.
