Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last couple of years have seen a remarkable development in the use of online research in vision science, accelerated by the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. This move to internet-mediated science presents a number of challenges to scientists who are used to exerting a high degree of control in the lab. It also presents great opportunities in terms of the size and diversity of samples. This Special Issue will bring together web-based studies of vision and visual cognition. We hope to better understand how scholars have adapted to this new paradigm, and what successes (and failures!) there have been in translating research from the lab to the virtual world. We also encourage authors to submit work reporting new empirical, methodological, and theoretical developments that have resulted from web-based studies.

We invite submissions from the area of vision science and visual cognition from web-based experiments, including submissions that provide guidance to other scholars regarding best practices for conducting reliable and valid studies via the internet.
