The Psychonomic Society is soliciting papers for a special issue of its journal Behavior Research Methods, Instruments & Computers titled "Electronic Archiving: Norms, Stimuli and Data." The special issue is slated for August 2004 to coordinate with the launch of a new online resource on the society's Web site--an archive of experimental psychology research materials.
The journal seeks a broad array of article submissions that discuss the challenges associated with data archiving or that accompany files for the archival Web site.
Such materials may include:
Visual and auditory stimuli for use by other researchers, as well as norms based on those stimuli.
Research databases or data archives for model-testing and evaluation.
Technical supplements that may help other researchers with their data analyses or equipment calibration.
Program source codes for statistical analysis, stimulus generation and similar applications.
Tabular or graphic information that is too extensive for paper publication.
