Social psychologists investigate topics as varied as the techniques of propaganda, group dynamics, and facial expressions. A gathering place for students and researchers in this diverse field is the Social Psychology Network, managed by Scott Plous of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. For users who need a tutorial on persuasion and influence or want to locate an online experiment their classes can participate in, the network's archive holds links to more than 12,000 resources on other Web sites. Separate discussion forums let students and professionals sound off. If you'd like to team up with a researcher who works on, say, conflict resolution and personality, check the directory with profiles of 1100 or so social psychologists. There are also links to relevant stories in the media.
