Call for paper: Beyond the Lab: Using Big Data to Discover Principles of Cognition
With more than 100 years of collective practice, experimental psychologists have become highly sophisticated in their application of well-controlled laboratory experiments to reveal principles of human cognition and behavior. This approach has yielded rigorous experimental designs with extensive controls. But the very expertise with which psychologists wield their tools for achieving laboratory control may now be limiting our field to the possibilities that now exist for using beyond the lab approaches to inform psychological theories.
For this special issue we seek contributions that fall into the broad topic of going beyond the lab to answer questions difficult or impossible to answer with conventional lab studies.
