New adventures for the team: Yury Shevchenko and Maria Rosa Miccoli got funded!

Researchers´everyday life is not only about teaching, experiments design, and data-analyses. Fundings and scholarhsips give researchers resources to make their ideas a reality! 🚀 iScience members are well aware of the potentialities of fundings. We are very happy to announce that Yury Schevchenko and Maria Rosa Miccoli were recently funded for two different projects. 👏🏻

Yury Shevchenko recently got the Young Scholar Fund (YSF), with his project “Psychological well-being in hybrid workspaces: An Experience Sampling Study”.

Maria Rosa Miccoli is officially a participant in the Konstantia MEIN program 2023. Through this program, she will visit a research laboratory in Rotterdam where she will be mentored by Prof. Krefeld-Schwalb.

We wish them both success in those experiences!

Methods Workshop & Symposium at the SCIP Conference 2022

Internet-based research: Methods, tools, research synthesis

The iScience team goes to Boston for the SCIP Conference 2022. As per tradition, Ulf-Dietrich Reips is organizing the symposium, and Christopher R. Wolfe will be the discussant. This year, the symposium will start with a workshop held by Yury Schevchenko and Ulf-Dietrich Reips about Samply. Maria Rosa Miccoli, Gáspár Lukács, Esther Kaufmann, and Ulf-Dietrich Reips will present their current projects in the field of methodologies in Internet-based research. See the program in detail.
We are looking forward to a vivid discussion, and to coming back to SCIP, in Boston!


Call for contributions to web-based timing meta-study

Our project aims to verify, and to assess the extent of, the superiority of a recently demonstrated improvement in JavaScript-based display timing precision in web-based experiments, as compared to the less precise conventional method (Lukács & Gartus, 2022; cf. Garaizar & Reips, 2019). We seek researchers who are planning to conduct any online response-time based experiments
● in the near future,
● using their own custom JavaScript-based app for data collection,
● and would be able and willing to contribute to our project as a co-author in our eventual paper.

We hope to finish all data collection and have a written manuscript by the end of 2023, but for the moment we have no fixed deadline either for applying for participation or for ending data collection. For more details and for up-to-date information, please visit https://gasparl.github.io/timing-meta/.

The project is organized by the iScience team at the University of Konstanz (team leader: Prof. Dr. Ulf-Dietrich Reips), in collaboration with the Department of Methodology and Statistics at Tilburg University (Dr. Bennett Kleinberg).

If you are interested in contributing or have any questions, please contact Gáspár Lukács at gaspar.lukacs@uni-konstanz.de.

You are encouraged to further share and forward this call – it would be much appreciated.

Welcome Gáspár!

iScience welcomes our new team member Dr. Gáspár Lukács!
One of his main projects will be how to ensure precise and accurate display timing in JavaScript for web-based experiments. In addition, he will create the web application for data collection for the DFG project “e-SNARC” (Replicability of fundamental results on spatial-numerical associations in highly powered online experiments).
We are looking forward to a successful cooperation!
