Recognizing the growing interest in media psychology and related research, in 2020 the American Psychological Association launched their newest open-access journal, Technology, Mind, and Behavior (https://tmb.apaopen.org/). With a focus on the influence of technology on how humans behave and engage each other, TMB is poised to serve as a home for the expanding field of media psychology. Issues of media psychology have come to forefront with the enduring global pandemic that has forced many of us to rely on technologies as our only way to stay connected to each other–this theme is represented in the journal’s recent special pre-registered study series, ‘Technology-Mediated Interactions and Their Impact on the Human Mind and Behavior in a Time of Social Distancing.’ In our panel conversation, we will discuss the editorial mission of TMB and speak with recent authors and editors about the publication process. Conversations will focus on publishing media psychology research broadly, with a specific discussion on working with TMB’s open-access and interactive publishing model, as well as how and when to engage open science practices in the publication process.
Panelists: Nick Bowman, Isabela Granic, Shawn Green, and Tobias Greitemeyer.
Moderator: Danielle McNamara
