Perspectives_textsquareThe November 2016 issue of Perspectives on Psychological Science (PPS) includes the symposium Am I Famous Yet?,a series of invited articles discussing what factors ought to be taken into account in evaluating the scientific merit of the accomplishments of scholars in psychological science. There has been considerable interest in this symposium, and PPS invites submissions to a follow-up symposium. Articles offering diverse perspectives on this topic are particularly encouraged.

If you would like to make a submission, please do so by February 28, 2017, at Submissions should be between 1000 and 1500 words and will be peer-reviewed, like those in the original symposium. We expect to publish the follow-up symposium early in 2018.
