Media: Helping big data become more ethical and more open

Invited blog post: Psychological scientists can do big data research while preserving our ethical responsibilities to our participants and our commitments to improving the openness and transparency of science. My contribution to the Psychonomic Society's #PSBigData Digital Event---in honor of the new special issue of Behavior Research Methods---focuses on some exciting new solutions and big open questions. (And don't forget to check out Dennis et al.'s (2019) great open-access piece on privacy and open science for researchers doing large-scale data collection.)

Publication: Intersectional, Social, Ecological

Conference proceedings: We argue that ecological psychology must grow to consider how intersectionality (Crenshaw, 1991) impacts social effectivities and social affordances (Paxton, Blau, & Weston, 2019, Studies in Perception and Action XV: Proceedings from the Twentieth International Conference on Perception and Action).
