The Leibniz Institute for Psychology (ZPID) is the supra-regional research support facility for psychology in German-speaking countries. It supports the entire scientific work process, from literature research and study planning to data collection and analyses to documentation, archiving and publication of results. The services offered by ZPID are based on an ideal-type research cycle.
ZPID is committed to the idea of open science and sees itself as a public open science institute for psychology. As a research-based support institution, ZPID conducts basic application research in the areas of research literacy and user-friendly research support, research synthesis methods and big data in psychology.
The central, free-of-charge services include the search portal PubPsych, the preregistration platform PreReg, the online software environment for data analysis PsychNotebook, the open access publishing platform PsychOpen GOLD and the psychology repository PsychArchives.
ZPID places great importance on supporting the work-life-balance of its employees. ZPID therefore continuously improves its services to this effect and was certified for the second time by the audit berufundfamilie in 2022.
