SAGE announces expanded partnership with the Association for Psychological Science to launch innovative journal on research methods and practices
- 22 Sep 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced an expanded partnership with the Association for Psychological Science to launch Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science (AMPPS) in early 2018.

AMPPS will publish new types of articles, tutorials, and empirical works that reflect various approaches to research across the field. Its Research Practices section will include statistics tutorials, articles on new research tools, commentaries, simulation studies for new techniques, and best practices articles and debates, among others. Its Empirical section will cover methodological articles, policy-oriented empirical studies, large-scale studies adopting new and innovative methodological approaches, registered reports of original research, and more.

SAGE has published pioneering textbooks and journals on research methods for more than four decades. Responding to the needs of today's researchers, as well as to advances in technology and big data, the company now offers datasets, case studies, educational videos on key techniques and the latest trends within research methods, and most recently, data science courses.

AMPPS will be the new home for the APS Registered Replication Reports (published through 2017 in Perspectives on Psychological Science).

SAGE Publishing launches online data science courses for social scientists
- 20 Sep 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has launched SAGE Campus, a new series of online data science courses, to support social science researchers and equip them with a range of new skills to embrace the data revolution.

In 2016, SAGE and the University of Essex conducted a survey of over 9,000 academics with the aim of learning more about how big data is being used in social science research. The survey revealed that although there was a considerable appetite among researchers to work with big data, a number of barriers stood in their way, including a lack of skills. This is where SAGE Campus comes in; created in partnership with world-leading institutions, and with expert learning support from instructors available throughout, the online courses offer social scientists the key data science and programming skills they need to take advantage of the opportunities big data presents.

Launched in September, the first set of courses include: Introduction to Applied Data Science Methods for Social Scientists, in association with the Social Science Data Lab (D-Lab) at the University of California, Berkeley; Introduction to Python for Social Scientists, in association with the Royal Statistical Society; Practical Data Management with R for Social Scientists; and Interactive Visualization with R for Social Scientists, in association with the Royal Statistical SocietyFundamentals of Quantitative Text Analysis for Social Scientists, in association with Essex Summer School of Social Science Data Analysis, University of Essex.

- 19 Sep 2017

Medical and scientific publishing house Thieme has announced the addition of an innovative concussion journal to its portfolio of expanding open access publications. Sports-related concussions are a major contributor to traumatic brain injuries, accounting for an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million injuries each year in the U.S. alone.

Jha, the editorial board is comprised of renowned experts on sports-related concussion, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and injury prevention. Therefore, a primary focus of the journal is the dissemination of large, multi-centered clinical trials targeted at determining the potential efficacy of concussion treatments and diagnostic tools.

New innovations are planned for the coming months and years, starting with the very first complete online publication. In the pipeline are articles on diagnostic and treatment advances as well as on changing concussion policies impacting the workplace and sports. Regular podcasts feature key members of the concussion community, providing new and expanded insights on articles published in every issue.

Current Research: Concussion joins a prestigious group of Thieme sports medicine journals, including International Journal of Sports Medicine, an acclaimed longstanding Thieme publication, as well as Sports Medicine International Open.

Relevant submission and publication information on Current Research: Concussion is available at Thieme Open.
