How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Introduction
Interested in pretty much anything to do with learning and memory, with a proclivity towards dual-process theories.

Article
Many researchers often do not report effect sizes at all, and, if they do report them, often do not report the correct measure for the design that has been used in the research. With the increased level of attention being given to the reporting of effect sizes and their corresponding confidence intervals, it is important that there is field-specifi...
Article
There is a strong push for the inclusion of effect size indexes alongside the reporting of statistical analysis in academic journals. Nonparametric methods of analysis have generally been developed less than their parametric counterparts have, and are also generally less well known. Too often researchers use parametric statistics where nonparametri...

Internationalization is a key aim of the International Society of Political Psychology (ISPP). This article uses bibliometric techniques to explore international collaborations in the Society’s core activities, namely the journal Political Psychology and annual meetings. We explore how authors from different regions of the world are interconnected...

Imagine you overhear someone talking about a robbery they just committed. You hear their voice, but you can not see them. A few weeks later, the police ask you to identify the person you overheard, from a voice lineup. You listen to different peoples’ voices and try to pick out the criminal. Do you think you would be able to do it? Perhaps you thin...
Article
The current research investigated whether individual differences in working memory capacity (WMC) and affective states have differential effects on lexical-semantic repetition priming outcomes based on whether participants were first- or second-language English speakers. Individual differences in priming effects have often been overlooked in the pr...

Voice identification parades can be unreliable, as earwitness responses are error-prone. In this paper we tested performance across serial and sequential procedures, and varied pre-parade instructions, with the aim of reducing errors. The participants heard a target voice and later attempted to identify it from a parade. In Experiment 1 they were e...
Thesis
Full-text available
Is there is a common implicit ability analogous to I.Q. (i.e., a latent factor determined by strong inter correlations of psychometric measures)? Based on my Ph.D. research, there is just enough evidence to argue both ways.
Preprint
Full-text available
Voice identification parades can be unreliable due to the error-prone nature of earwitness responses. Home Office guidelines (2003) recommend that voice parades should consist of nine-voices, each played for 60-seconds. This makes parades resource-consuming to construct. In the present paper we conducted two experiments to see if voice parade proce...

Background: Learning styles of health care professionals are unique and tend to be profession- specific. This study aimed to compare the learning styles of undergraduate occupational therapy and physiotherapy students and to determine the relationship between preferred learning styles, demographic factors, and academic performance. Method: The stud...

A voice parade enables collection of earwitness identification evidence, but the current procedure is costly and time-consuming. Hence, this study investigates whether the number of foils or duration of samples could safely be reduced. Listeners attempted to recognize a voice amongst same-accented foils in target-absent or target-present parades (c...
Preprint
Individual differences in repetition priming is an often-overlooked area of research. The importance of this neglect becomes evident when considering the criticisms that priming research has received in the last decade concerning reliability. The current researched aimed to investigate whether individual differences in working memory capacity and a...
Preprint
Voice identification parades can be unreliable, as earwitness responses are error-prone. Here we vary pre-parade instructions, testing performance across serial and sequential procedures to examine ways of reducing errors. The participants listened to a target voice and later attempted to identify it from a parade. They were either warned that the...

Background: The average lifespan of people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has increased because of the enhanced access to anti-retroviral treatment. This increased longevity has led to a heightened focus on the comorbidities which may arise, allowing a clearer understanding of the contextual, personal, psychological and functional problems...
Article
Introduction: HIV has much comorbidity that includes depression. Additionally, disability has been found to manifest in HIV. However, the intersection between these co-morbidities is unknown. The primary aim is investigating the link between the onset of disability and depressive symptoms amongst a cohort of patients on antiretroviral treatment. Ma...
Thesis

This research set out to describe the level of internationalization that exists within the journal, Political Psychology. The primary way in which this was done was through exploring the patterns of coauthorship between authors from different countries who have published together. The terms ‘WEIRD’ (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Demo...

Questions

Question (1)
Question
I am trying to find tests of: a) Verbal Speed, b) Numerical Speed, c) Verbal Reasoning. However, I do not have access to the WAIS, or the DAT-V tests (which, as far as I am aware, are the primary tests used to measure these constructs). If anyone knows any other tests which are free to use (apart from citing the publisher), please could you let me know. 
Thanks in advance.
