The Editors’ Corner: Conducting and Publishing Integrative Science

Saturday 25 March
11:00 – 12:20 (11:00 AM – 12:20 PM)

How does integrative science (drawing broadly on research conducted at multiple levels of analysis and from multiple disciplinary perspectives within and outside of psychological science) fit with the mission of top psychological journals? How is integrative science research evaluated? What are the barriers in publishing integrative science papers? What are the important things to know for early career researchers who are embracing an integrative approach? What are some of the future directions for integrative science? A unique panel of editors of leading psychological science journals will answer these questions and share their perspectives on integrative research.
