Selection by Design - Blog

It might seem strange that we are writing a blog about other blogs (of sort)...but as the saying goes, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it!' There are 2 really useful digests provided by the British Psychological Society (BPS: www.bps.org.uk) that we think are useful and worth signing-up for. The first is the award-winning Research Digest which reports on new psychological findings of every flavour (http://www.researchdigest.org.uk/blog).  You can follow the digest on Twitter (http://twitter.com/researchdigest) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/researchdigest) as well.  The Digest is edited by Dr Christian Jarrett (christianjarrett@gmail.com). Published monthly, the Digest presents summaries of important or novel research that has just been published (with citations and / or links to free access).  For example, Digest (no. 192) provided reviews of the following: 1. Men are as motivated by cute baby faces as women 2. Why is a touch on the arm so persuasive? 3. Doubts cast on imagery as a rehab tool for stroke patients 4. This picture will make it more likely that you'll seek help 5. The dark side of swearing - it may deter emotional support from others 6. Is male libido the ultimate cause of war? 7. Link fest The second (and perhaps of more interest to you) is a specialist sibling from the Division of Occupational Psychology at the BPS (http://www.bps.org.uk/dop) and is called The BPS Occupational Digest (www.occdigest.org.uk).  You can follow the digest on Twitter (http://twitter.com/occdigest) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/researchdigest) as well.  The Digest is edited by Dr Alex Fradera (alex.fradera@gmail.com). Published monthly, the Digest presents summaries of important or novel research that has just been published (with citations and / or links to free access).  For example, Digest (no. 005) provided reviews of the following: 1. Best practices may not be best for your organisation 2. Onlookers see people who break rules as more powerful 3. When self-promoting won't help you get a job offer 4. Psychologically safe teams can incubate bad behaviour 5. Are we wrong to treat overqualified employees as 'too much of a good thing'? 6. Measuring happiness: a view from management science Well, get going ! Conor
