Opening editorial 2022.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

In this editorial, the author gives voice to three principles that he hopes will influence the articles that appear in American Psychologist : The scholarship should be rigorous, it should attend to both basic and applied considerations, and authors should be open and transparent in the reporting of how the research was conducted. The author says he would be remiss if he didn't also mention the importance of free and open inquiry. Progress in science depends on an atmosphere that permits-indeed, promotes-original thinking. A discipline, like psychology, that hopes to flourish by expanding the reach of its explanations must encourage divergent thinking and the thoughtful and respectful exchange of ideas while meeting criteria for excellent scholarship.
