Other benefits of Psychlopedia
In addition to the provision of information, Psychlopedia offers some other unique benefits:
- The information is often more advanced and recent than other sources, such as Wikipedia and textbooks, as well as more credible than internet sites that do not restrict contributions to psychologists, academics, and postgraduate students.
- Contributors can utilize Psychlopedia as a means to store and organize their work. Often individuals feel overwhelmed with pages of MS Word documents that are not organized coherently.
- For academics and students, all the latest information about specific topics will be summarized on the one page;;;;;;; individuals do not have to integrate information from a multitude of different sources and years to construct their own definitive version. To write their theses, for example, students can then copy, paste, and then modify the contents of this site, including the references, to conserve time.
