Associate Professor of Cognitive Psychology

I am updating this site. Some contents may be perished when all the works are done.

Sau-Chin Chen is the associate professor of Department of Human Development and Psychology, Tzu-Chi University since 2017. Between 2016 Feb and 2017 Jan, I was visiting Department of Psychology, Erasmus University Rotterdam. Durning this period, I am collaborating with Rolf Zwaan on the mental simulation in language comprehension. You will find the articles and blog posts about my research that are going to be updated.

Since 2017, I joined Psychological Science Accelerator and contributed the object orientation effects across languages as one of the initial collaborative research projects. To practice what I have learned from The Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science, I am managing the podcast open cafe and running the community Taiwan Collaboration for Psychological Scientific Research. Both projects aim to ground the open and reproducible sciences in Taiwan and Chinese-speaking societies. Till 2021, I am participating in the operations of Psychological Science Accelerator and The Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science as the associative director and executive commitee.

This website is updated based on my knowledge about data science. The data of the previous website are stored on this repository. Since 2017, I have participated in COS Ambassador project and registered the membership of The Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS). This experience truns me out the interests to evaluate and improve the quality of psycholinguistic researches. I am developing the Chinese tutorial of open sciences and registered reports. Welcome share my materials of Registered Report Workshop. I would like to share with people who wish to improve the psychology science.
