statcheck Runner-Up for Sentinel Award

Screen-Shot-2017-08-02-at-4.05.46-PM-2Publons announced the winner of the Sentinel Award for outstanding advocacy, innovation or contribution to scholarly peer review, and I am proud to announce that statcheck was crowned runner-up!

I am honored that the judges considered statcheck a useful contribution to the peer review system. In the end, one of the things I hope to achieve is that all Psychology journals will consider it standard practice to quickly “statcheck” a paper for statistical inconsistencies to avoid publishing them.

A very warm congratulations to the winner of the award: Irene Hames. Irene spent most of her career on improving the quality of peer review and it is great that her work is recognized in this way! Also congratulations to the rest of the Sentinel Award nominees: Retraction WatchAmerican Geophysical UnionORCiDF1000ResearchThe Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)Kyle Martin and Gareth Fraser.

statcheck Shortlisted for Publon Sentinel Award!

Proud to announce that I’ve been shortlisted for the Publon Sentinel Award for my work on statcheck. The Sentinel Award is an award for outstanding advocacy, innovation or contribution to scholarly peer review.

At this point, statcheck is used in the peer review process of two major psychology journals (Psychological Science and the Journal for Experimental Social Psychology) and an increasing number of journals are recommending using statcheck on your own manuscript before submitting it.
