Informal Resolutions Versus Formal Resolutions
Informal Resolutions versus Formal Resolutions Within the APA Code of Ethics, there are many ethical standards that give ethical and moral guidance on a number of topics.

The Replication Crisis (in science)
Psychology, as well as many other scientific fields, has begun to face a crisis the likes of which hasn't been seen in the history of scientific inquiry. This crisis, is the crisis of replication in the sciences. To understand what that is, first a definition of replication. In the sciences, a piece of research is considered generalizable to the larger population if it has specific statistical significance values and a diverse enough sample of subjects/participants. Replication is the term used to refer to the process of reproducing the original study's results.
