Caution where you publish (openpsych)

Post by miriam »

If you read this article and this rationalwiki it becomes clear that openpsych (and it's constituent "journals" Open Behavioral Genetics, Open Differential Psychology and Open Quantitative Sociology & Political Science) is a pseudojournal serving to validate the racist content of the owner/editor, who wrote 26 of the 48 published articles.

It is a good reminder to look at the quality of journals and platforms that you use, to ensure they are peer-reviewed, good quality and independent of obvious sources of bias.
