Psi Chi’s Network for International Collaborative Exchange (NICE) is officially accepting proposals for the CROWD component

A word on NICE…

The NICE is concerned with facilitation of cross-cultural research amongst Psi Chi members and other researchers both Nationally and Internationally. A subcomponent of NICE, NICE:CROWD, will include a short list of research questions, with the goal of generating data from many locations using the same research protocol. CROWD offers a plethora of benefits to researchers such as: reducing the burden of having to solicit large numbers of participants, increasing the diversity of study samples, providing researchers accessible materials and protocols, and providing a convenient platform for faculty to engage students in the scientific research process.

We are officially inviting you to submit your own research question that you would like to see answered! We invite researchers to propose research questions using the Center for Open Science (COS) Preregistration Template and shared with us using the Open Science Framework (OSF). Instructions are provided below:

Submitting a research question to NICE:CROWD can be down in just 4 main steps!

  1. Come up with a cross cultural research question you would like to see answered! Please note that with COVID-19 restrictions, we are interested in proposals that align with local health guidelines and IRB guidance.
  2. Create an OSF account - this is the hub for all things NICE! (Note: if your country does not allow access to OSF, you are still welcome to submit on Psi Chi’s website!)
    b. Signing up just requires providing a name, e-mail address, and a password for your OSF account.
