POSTPONED: Research Ethics in the Age of Open Science: A Conversation with Dr. Harris Cooper
After a six-year term as editor of Psychological Bulletin, Dr. Cooper was the Chief Editorial Advisor for APA's journal program. In this role, he served as a resource to the editors of APA's 70+ journals as well as the mediator of disputes between editors and authors and between authors and authors. He responded to over 600 inquiries, many of which dealt with authorship disputes, data management issues, and plagiarism, among other ethical concerns. His book, Ethical Choices in Research: Managing Data, Writing Reports, and Publishing Results in the Social Sciences (2016), draws from this experience. The book goes beyond the proper treatment of research participants to examine frequently neglected ethical issues that arise after data has been collected. Then, Dr. Cooper became the inaugural co-editor of the Archives of Scientific Psychology, APA's first open methods, collaborative data sharing, open access journal.
His substantive interests include the application of social and developmental psychology to education policy. His methodological interests include research synthesis and meta-analysis. He is the author of Research Synthesis and Meta-Analysis: A Step-by-Step Approach (5th edition, 2017) and Reporting Research in Psychology: How to Meet the New Standards for Journal Articles (2nd edition, 2019), as well as the editor-in-chief of APA's Handbook of Research Methods in Psychology (2nd edition, anticipated 2022).
