How can meta-research improve the Psychological Science Accelerator (PSA) and how can the PSA improve meta-research? The Psychological Science Accelerator (PSA) is a standing network of more than 500 laboratories that collect large-scale, non-WEIRD data for psychology studies (https://psysciacc.org). The PSA is continually working to adopt best practices in (multi lab) research, and is actively seeking to create policy and collect data for the benefit of researchers in the meta-research community. In this session, Marcel van Assen and Peder Isager will discuss the importance of many lab studies and provide an overview of PSA’s organization, including all completed and ongoing projects. A large part of the session will be interactive and be devoted to how meta-research and PSA may advance each other. Specifically, how can meta-research facilitate the submission, review, construction, design, and analysis of the many lab studies of PSA, and how can the results of these many lab studies advance meta-research? The goal is to write a blog post based on the ideas raised in the session, with the possibility of extending this into a paper.
