Today’s news from SIPS: Getting better…

A while ago I wrote about SIPS. Today came an email following the second SIPS meeting, a couple of weeks ago at COS in Charlottesville, VA. Below is some of the email:

Mark your calendars

(SIPS 2019 will be somewhere in Europe, exact date and location TBD.)

We’re official!
We’re incorporated! This means we’ll soon be ready to offer official SIPS membership, complete with voting rights, discounted registration to next year’s conference, and many other perks! Look out for an email soon with instructions on how to become a SIPS member – we’d love your support!

We have a journal!
SIPS has officially partnered with the open access, UC press journal Collabra: Psychology. Stay tuned for more developments…

Get Involved
Want to catch up or jump in on projects started during SIPS 2017? Take a look at the projects on the OSF page, and feel free to contact the group leaders if you’d like to get involved!”

Alas I wasn’t there, but there’s clearly a massive amount of good OS work going on. Have a squiz at the program–scroll down to p. 6 and beyond to see some of the main projects underway.
