Abstract

The leading journals for experimental social psychology rely disproportionally on undergraduate students for their findings. James Hartley argues necessary steps need to be taken to widen the sample size to restore credibility to the studies and to the discipline as a whole. Digital communication methods and a firmer commitment to replication studies with different populations could help to improve the situation.
