The first issue of APS’s newest journal Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science (AMPPS) has debuted. This one-of-a-kind journal publishes new types of empirical work and articles and tutorials that reflect the various approaches to research across the field. The journal’s editorial scope encompasses the breadth of psychological science, with editors, reviewers, and articles representing a balance among diverse disciplinary perspectives and methodological approaches. All articles are now online.
In his editorial for the opening issue, AMPPS Editor Daniel J. Simons, University of Illinois, discusses the journal’s mission, its structure, and its leading role in advancing APS’s overall leadership in fostering scientific transparency, openness, and reproducibility. Below is a reprint of that editorial, which also appears. See Simons’ editorial for the inaugural issue.
