Editor’s Selections: Data, Novelty, and Pets

Editor's Selections 13 Comments
By Jason Goldman

Jason GoldmanJason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.

  • Sometimes you’re interested in new papers not for the main results that the authors present, but for some other data you see in a graph that might catch the corner of your eye. At Cracking the Enigma, Jon Brock discusses this, and a handy tool to help extract that data. The Adventures of DataThief!
  • At BishopBlog, Dorothy Bishop has a nice inside-baseball sort of post about the business of publishing papers in high-impact journals. Novelty, interest and replicability.
  • Having pets is a good thing, and science agrees. At Gaines, on Brains, find out about the latest research in this area: Fur-iends with Benefits.

That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

    Thanks for your posting on the travel industry. I’d personally also like to add that if you’re a senior taking into consideration traveling, it really is absolutely vital that you buy travel cover for golden-agers. When traveling, seniors are at greatest risk of experiencing a professional medical emergency. Obtaining right insurance plan package to your age group can protect your health and give you peace of mind.
