Psi Chi is announcing a new call for NICE: CROWD proposals!
Psi Chi’s Network for International Collaborative Exchange (NICE)
invites you to submit a research proposal for cross-cultural studies!
The NICE is concerned with the facilitation of cross-cultural research amongst Psi Chi members and other researchers both nationally and internationally. A subcomponent of NICE, NICE: CROWD, will include a shortlist of research questions, with the goal of generating data from many locations using the same research protocol. CROWD offers a plethora of benefits to researchers such as: reducing the burden of having to solicit large numbers of participants, increasing the diversity of study samples, providing researchers accessible materials and protocols, and providing a convenient platform for faculty to engage students in the scientific research process!
Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
You can submit a research question to NICE: CROWD by following these steps:
1. Come up with a cross-cultural research question you would like to see answered! Please note that with COVID-19 restrictions, we are interested in proposals that align with local health guidelines and IRB guidance (i.e., does not require in-person meetings).
2. Create an Open Science Framework (OSF) account—this is the hub for all things NICE! (Note: if your country does not allow access to OSF, you are still welcome to submit a completed pre-registration template via email!)
b. Signing up just requires providing a name, e-mail address, and a password for your OSF account.
c. Email the nice chair with your interest in applying to NICE: CROWD with your OSF username
d. NICE will add you to our main OSF page.
3. Fill out the Word document version of the OSF pre-registration template.
a. Head to the NICE: CROWD OSF page at https://osf.io/4ct72/
b. Under the NICE: CROWD component storage there is a file labeled pre-registration template
c. Download the word document found here
d. Fill out the pre-registration template and compile materials (e.g., surveys, questionnaires, software) you will be using for your study
4. Share your proposal with us!
a. Email the completed pre-registration template with compiled materials to the NICE Chair Cory J. Cascalheira via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals are due July 31st, 2021!
Please contact Cory J. Cascalheira at email@example.com or John Edlund at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. From getting set up with the OSF, to filling out the pre-registration template, to moral support—we are here to help!
