Ashland University Research Center Launches First Project

Ashland University Research Center Launches First Project

The Ashland University International Collaboration Research Center (ICRC) has launched its first official project, and quickly built a team of collaborators from more than 175 different laboratories, in over 40 countries, on all six populated continents.

The ICRC’s Psychological Science Accelerator aims to accelerate the accumulation of reliable and generalizable evidence in psychological science, reducing the distance between truth about human behavior and mental processes and our current understanding. The project will focus on collecting large and global data sets for studies that researchers in the network vote as making the biggest contribution to the field. All data, research materials and data analysis details will then be openly disseminated for other researchers to explore and re-analyze to generate new hypotheses.
