Psychology is the science of mind and behavior. Contemporary psychology research strives to answer questions about human thinking and interaction in a wide variety of settings. The Psychology Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers, early stage research and even peer reviewed or published journal articles. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps psychology scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Given the breadth and depth of psychological research, as well as its cross and interdisciplinary nature, SSRN provides important and organized categorical links between psychological research and other research areas including anthropology, arts, cognitive science, economics, education, law, linguistics, medical sciences, philosophy, and technology. Thus, SSRN provides a unique opportunity for researchers to submit early and novel work for review, feedback, and use by researchers within and beyond psychology.
