The Yale CogSci department is developing a nice research initiative.
The experiment month initiative encourages philosophers to develop and submit original ideas for new experimental studies. Students and professors who wish to submit a proposal for experiment month are invited to contact the experiment month staff for feedback and suggestions before submitting.
All experiment proposals are due September 1st, 2010.
A team of philosophers and psychologists will select the most promising of these proposals to be included in experiment month. Then, in March 2011 the experiment month staff will run the selected studies online, collect the resulting data, and help out with statistical analysis.
I’m on the steering committee for this, and I hope it yields some good projects.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention the link to this – here it is.
