Society for Open Inquiry in Behavioral Science
We are scholars and practitioners in the behavioral sciences committed to free inquiry and truth seeking. In healthy scientific fields, ideas are debunked rather than censored, and their proponents are debated rather than punished. We are dedicated to maintaining open inquiry, civil debate, and rigorous standards in the behavioral sciences. Our activities include hosting academic conferences, publishing an open inquiry peer-reviewed journal (JOIBS), and producing other scholarly content such as books and popular press pieces.

The Journal of Open Inquiry in Behavioral Science (JOIBS)
JOIBS is the journal of the Society for Open Inquiry in Behavioral Science. The Society is committed to free inquiry and rigorous standards. It is a forum for intellectual exchange and dissemination of empirically-based scholarship in any area of behavioral science, broadly construed. It allows post-publication peer commentary. Unsolicited manuscripts may be submitted at any time. JOIBS only publishes empirical papers and commentaries on those empirical papers. For more information, click here.
