Psychological Methodology

Technological progress has led to the development of new psychological methods as well as the modification of already well established methods. Especially the computer has substantially influenced psychology as a science. Complex statistical methods can be performed efficiently and data can be visualized easily. But also data collection has changed significantly through the computer and the Internet in particular. In Psychological Diagnostics, efficient adaptive testing was only possible through the usage of a computer. Doing research online is meanwhile common practice. The Division of Psychological Methodology commit itself to these new research methods.

Internet-based research / Ambulatory Assessment:

  • Ambulatory Assessment with smartphones
  • Research about online social media.
  • Development of new data collection techniques such as using wearables.
  • Analysis of metadata/paradata.
  • Research about consequences of mobile/digital communication (e.g., addiction, loss of privacy).

The Division of Psychological Methodology also supports the Open Science movement. This implies systematic reviews (meta-analyses), power analyses, participation in multi-site studies, preregistration, open data, open material, and so forth.
