Abstract

The authors comment positively on “Scholarship in Psychology: A Paradigm for the Twenty-First Century” (D. F. Halpern et al., 1998) and further expand that vision of scholarship. Giving high priority to social responsibility, they criticize overly narrow scholarship, including its effects on the discipline, and examine the economics of scholarship and the criteria for evaluation. Emphasis on applied research and the integration of knowledge is encouraged, along with the application of psychology and the scholarship of pedagogy and teaching. A broader, flexible, more grounded vision of scholarship and a modification of the culture of academic psychology is required.
