A new journal at APS: AMPPS

I am thrilled to announce the launch of the newest journal published by the Association for Psychological Science (APS):

I will been named the founding editor, and I have assembled what I think will be a terrific editorial team. We are now taking submissions, with the first issue slated for publication in early 2018.

The journal's primary mission is to communicate advances in research methods and practices to the broad membership of APS and beyond. We hope to bridge subfields of psychology, bringing advances from within an area to the rest of the field. 

AMPPS will publish articles on research practices, tutorials to help researchers develop new research skills, and empirical papers that illustrate innovative methodological approaches. It will be the new home for the Registered Replication Reports that previously were published at the APS journal Perspectives on Psychological Science (my co-editors for those papers, Alex Holcombe and Jennifer Tackett, have joined the new editorial team). AMPPS will also publish registered reports, adversarial collaborations, multi-lab consortium studies, simulations and re-analyses of existing data, meta-science papers, commentaries, and much more.

You can read more about the journal's mission, see the editorial team, and read the submission guidelines on the journal's website.

APS also issued a press release about the new journal last week.
