We are an independent group of psychologists dedicated to improving the reliability of psychology findings by raising our journals' reporting standards. We hope that our bottom-up grassroot initiative convinces journal editors to change editorial policies whereby the 4 categories of methodological details disclosed on this website become a required component of submitted manuscripts.

We're glad to report that the success of PsychDisclosure.org has influenced the journal Psychological Science to raise their reporting standards! Since January 1, 2014, all authors who submit a manuscript to Psychological Science must excplicitly confirm that they have disclosed all information covered by the 4 categories (see here for more details on Psychological Science's new submission guidelines).
