Hotspots in Psychology – 2021 Edition

Published Online:https://doi.org/10.1027/2151-2604/a000438

Abstract. This editorial briefly introduces the six articles included in the fifth “Hotspots in Psychology” of the Zeitschrift für Psychologie. The format is devoted to systematic reviews and meta-analyses in research-active fields that have generated a considerable number of primary studies. The common denominator of published papers is the application of research synthesis approaches and not a specific psychological topic or theme that all articles have to address. Moreover, methodological advances in research synthesis methods relevant to any subfield of psychology are being addressed. To foster the open science philosophy, all papers present comprehensive supplemental material via PsychArchives (www.psycharchives.org).
