needs your help! In order to have a classification system of proposed
EPAs, we need contributors to add citations and build our site.
Who is eligible to contribute?
Any researcher or scholar with an interest in the
biological or social sciences is potentially eligible to become a
curator. We need curators from a diversity of disciplines, including
(but not limited to) psychology, biology, anthropology, philosophy,
sociology, history, cognitive science, computer science, and
linguistics. Potential curators should have an advanced degree and/or
publication history in a field related to the biological or social
sciences. Graduate students -- and, in some cases, undergraduate
students -- are eligible, provided they can demonstrate expertise or
experience with pertinent topics.
How does it work?
Our expert contributors, known as "curators," upload citations of
peer-reviewed literature or scholarly books that support or challenge
the existence of proposed EPAs (evolved psychological adaptations).
Curators also rate the citations that they and other curators upload,
on the basis of how well each one supports or challenges the existence
of that EPA. PsychTable calculates evidence scores based on the
citations and their ratings.
How much time does it take up to be a curator?
PsychTable can be as small or as big a commitment as you wish. It only
takes a minute to upload or rate a citation, and you can upload as few
or as many as you want at any time.
If I'm not eligible to be a curator, can I still use and contribute to PsychTable?
Yes, PsychTable is open to all. Even if you do not are not a
curator, you will still be able to fully explore PsychTable, post
comments, and make suggestions about what literature and EPAs should be
How do I become a curator?
To get started curating for PsychTable, e-mail us with a letter of interest and your CV. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.
We are also currently seeking web developers who are able to volunteer some time to help get PsychTable off the ground.
