Assistant professor Alex Coppock is one of the directors of the DeclareDesign Project, a set of software tools for describing, assessing and conducting empirical research. From their site, “DeclareDesign is a system for describing research designs in code and simulating them in order to understand their properties. Because DeclareDesign employs a consistent grammar of designs, you can focus on the intellectually challenging part – designing good research studies – without having to code up simulations from scratch.”
The DeclareDesign project has been awarded a SIPS Commendation. SIPS (the Society of the Improvement of Psychological Science) Commendations are awarded 3 times a year. SIPS works to bring scholars together to improve psychological Sciences methods and practices.
