The goal of this project is to increase the representation and diversity of marginalized people/underrepresented groups in the upcoming revision of OpenStax Psychology, a textbook used in Introductory Psychology classes around the country and world. We would like to convey to all students the far-ranging possibilities in these fields and ensure that all students can see themselves positively in the books. This project has been designed to allow a large number of people to contribute to this effort and influence what information is considered important enough for inclusion.

A Pressbooks copy of the current OpenStax Psychology text has been created at: https://opentext.wsu.edu/ospsychrevisions. Hypothesis (an annotation tool, learn more at: https://web.hypothes.is/) has been enabled on this page – you should see it as a tool bar on the right side of your page that can be expanded by clicking on the arrow at the top of the page. The goal is for people to show us where information should be included, what information should be changed, or general comments you may have on entire topics.

If you are unable to identify a specific section of the book that your information fits with, or you have more general comments to be made about the process, book, or idea, we have also set up a Qualtrics survey where ideas can be provided: https://wsu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0NaYHSw2ZiocGJn. Any questions about this project can be directed to Amy Nusbaum (Ph.D. candidate at Washington State University) at amy.nusbaum@wsu.edu.
