Call for Collaborative Research Proposals
Psi Chi’s Network for International Collaborative Exchange (NICE) is officially accepting proposals for the [NICE: Crowd component!]
The NICE is concerned with facilitating cross-cultural research amongst Psi Chi members and other researchers both within the US 50 states and internationally. A subcomponent of NICE, NICE: Crowd, will include a 1-3 collaborative research questions selected by the NICE committee. The selected projects will be promoted through Psi Chi in order to generate collaboratively collected data from many locations using the same research protocol. NICE: Crowd offers a plethora of benefits to researchers such as: reducing the burden of having to solicit large numbers of participants, increasing the diversity of study samples, providing researchers accessible materials and protocols, and providing a convenient platform for faculty to engage students in the scientific research process!
