WPE is free. At the moment, I accept no ads.
The life of this journal is expected to be about ten years.
Print journals have long used a system of anonymous, preacceptance
peer previews. This system has many problems, including long delays,
bias, and suppression of research. WPE instead uses postpublication
reviews by those who sign their names. This gives an article's author
the chance to reply to the reviews, and debate the findings in public,
making WPE's peer review system more robust.
Research is based on data. Science has always required data be made
available to confirm claims. WPE requires data to be made available
upon demand, subject to the guidelines found in the current versions
of the American Psychological Association's Ethics Code and Publication
Manual. If an author refuses an appropriate request for data sharing,
the article will be promptly removed.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, submitted articles are expected
to be placed on the website within two weeks of submission.
See the Instructions For Authors.
A unique feature of WPE is the requirement that authors have an
email address and remain subscribed to the mailing list for questions.
Authors are expected to reply to reviews, defend their works, and
write necessary updates.
