Mission Statement & Purpose
Communication Science and Biology (CSaB) promotes domain-general scientific research with relevance for the study of communication processes and systems. CSaB members value open, rigorous and replicable research. Empirical studies following primarily a quantitative approach employing experimental, observational, and/or meta-scientific research designs are welcome. In addition to programmatic research leading to novel findings, explorative research, data/code sharing, preregistrations, and direct replication studies are highly encouraged; null-findings are honored, if the research is based on a rigorous investigation. CSaB promotes collaboration among scholars of diverse scientific backgrounds (including — but not limited to — interdisciplinary research areas such as psychophysiology, cognitive neuroscience, behavioral genetics, and/or evolutionary psychology) to build a richer understanding of shared research questions and methods in the study of human communication.
