The Psychology Law Evidence Database coordinators are now accepting applications for senior graduate students in psychology-law graduate programs to serve as volunteer reviewers.
Reviewers are responsible for reviewing two sources per month (at a maximum). For each source assigned, you will receive a PDF of the document and a completed objective review of the papers methodological quality. You will be required to complete a subjective rating for inclusion based on your read of the paper and an objective rating (i.e., significant of the source, appropriateness for the database, strength of the methodology and data analysis, conceptual strength, quality of writing, and recommendation [include, exclude, defer review]). The anticipated time commitment is 2-4 hours per month. The coordinators of the database (Dr. Cook, Dr. Roesch, or Dr. Zapf) will make final decision for inclusion based on reviewer recommendations.
We hope you will consider joining us in creating this service to the profession.
To apply please email (1) a 400-word max statement of intent, (2) a 2-page max CV, (3) a 1-page max list of psychology-law coursework or workshops completed (include your year of study in your graduate program) to the PLED Coordinators by March 18, 2016. Successful applicants will demonstrate interest in the promotion of knowledge exchange, completion of relevant coursework or workshops in the field, and breadth of knowledge in topics related to psychology and the law. Only successful applicants will be contacted.
