Psychology RMLA 

   Advancement in academia typically depends upon Scientific publishing. The more you publish, the better the first job, the higher the raise, and the faster the promotion. Sadly only 8% of publications come from developing countries, despite the fact that 27% of the scientists live in developing countries and 80% of the scientists. 
   In almost all disciplines in Science students are required to learn about statistics. However, statistics is a difficult topic to learn and learning it in a second language makes it doubly difficult. A primary reason for this is Stataphobia which is the fear of research design and statistics, and not having access to people who can help. Stataphobia makes it most difficult to learn about statistics. Eighty percent of all rejected articles are due to poor research methods.

   Much of what we use across disciplines is the result of the building of research methods in the area of Psychology. We have therefore built a research methods library of Alexandria for Psychology

The components of the Psychology RMLA are:

The General Research methods matrix.  If a student has a question about hypothesis testing they have 5 lectures by different faculty to learn from
Psychology Specific Methods:  This is a collection of lectures presenting Psychology specific research methods, including Quantitative and Qualitative research methods, research methods in clinical psychology, Cognitive psychology methods, etc.  For each area there are multiple lectures by different faculty to learn(below).
