Calls for Papers Collections

Transparency in reporting and methodological rigor have received increasing interest in psychology and cognitive science. They are crucial ingredients in ensuring the replicability of our findings, especially with hard to reach populations, high variability in responses, and reduced attention during experiments.

This PLOS ONE Collection showcases articles submitted for a recent Call for Papers and selected by our Guest Editors, in collaboration with the Center for Open Science. It includes a range of studies in developmental psychology: early cognitive development, language development, atypical development, cognitive processing across the lifespan, among others.
