The Open Psychology Project aims to provide information on a broad range of psychology related questions following the philosophy of the Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS)/Creative Commons movements.
Open Psychology Project Philosophy
As best possible, we are aiming to ensure that information about psychology (and psychiatry) related topics end up getting resources created which will allow anyone to get access to them, and use them as best they can, provided they are willing to abide by certain standards:
- The Open Psychology Project, and individual authors will need to be noted in any use of our materials.
- If you create other materials based on our materials, we ask that you share your materials the same way that we have shared them.
We would also like to request that if you do use any of our materials, that you let us know if possible. That way we can see how things are being used.
Content we will produce
We have been trying to not limit ourselves to certain specific content areas, but due to the fact that only a certain amount of time is available for those of us working on these projects, we will only expand our areas slowly over time.
We are looking at a couple of areas of interest now, which are more or less interconnected:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (DSM-5 term)
Due to the fact that so far our looking has led into other areas relatively soon we will also be looking at the following areas:
- Adaptive functioning
- Cognitive impairment
