The Virtual Psychology Laboratory (VP-Lab) is a collaboration between the School of Psychology at Cardiff University, the Computing in Teaching Initiative (CTI) Psychology Centre at York University and the Data Archive at Essex University, funded by the UK's Economic and Social Research Council. The intention of VP-Lab is to archive experimental psychology data and materials so that they may be located and downloaded by interested researchers and students. VP-Lab is accessed via the World Wide Web using a standard HTML browser. There are several different target audiences for VP-Lab. Firstly there are research psychologists who wish to, or are required to, make their data available. Researchers may also wish to access other's data or materials, perhaps to do a meta-analysis or when trying to gain a more comprehensive understanding of materials described in a published paper. A second audience consists of those who are teaching or studying psychology. The poster presented at WebNet 99 describes VP-Lab and focuses on how educational users might benefit from using it.
