Mark Leary, SPSP President The past few years have been particularly challenging ones for SPSP and for personality and social psychology more generally.  The field weathered some highly troubling cases of scientific misconduct, which damaged our public image and prompted intense self-scrutiny.  At the same time, SPSP experienced an embezzlement scandal, which consumed a great deal of time and resources and catalyzed a major reorganization of how the society is managed.  Concerns about the reproducibility of our results led to calls for sweeping changes in how we conduct our research, analyze our data, and report our findings.
The Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology (FPSP), in collaboration with SAGE Publications, has announced the SAGE Young Scholars Awards 2015 recipients. The awardees receive a one-time award of $5,000 to be used at their discretion for research, study, or conference travel-related purposes.
The enormous APA convention is not often the first conference that personality and social psychologists think about when they strategize about where to present their research.  There is a perception that only practicing clinicians attend APA.  While it’s true that the crowd is heavily clinical, there is also lots of great personality and social psychology that takes place as well.  At the 2014 convention, our division put on talks by Jamie Pennebaker, Wendy Wood, Phillip Zimbardo, Rebecca Shiner, Brian Nosek, Keith Humphreys, and many others.  There were symposia on implicit attitudes, emotion regulation, climate change, and personality development.
