Within & Between

By Within&Between Podcast
A podcast about the methods and metascience of developmental science, cohosted by Jessica Logan @jarlogan and Sara Hart @saraannhart. We talk about developmental sciencing, including data collection, data analysis, research methods, and open science, as well as life in academia. Think about it like a lab meeting where you don’t have to do the readings and never have to present. ​

S3E11: The Annual Review
In most faculty jobs, the department or college asks you to stop and document what you’ve been up to for the past year. In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about the institution’s goals for this annual review. We compare notes on what the evaluation packet looks like for our two programs, and we find that they are… quite different. Finally, Sara has the inside scoop on what happens after you turn in the annual review packet at her institution, and folks it is fascinating. Have a listen as you’re prepping to do your year-in-review! Connect with the podcast on twitter @within_between, or email us letters about developmental science at withinandbetweenpod@gmail.com.

S2E10: Managing the Paper Queue
In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about managing all the manuscripts that they are working on. We talk about whether and how we keep track of those papers that are nearly done, partly done, or just an idea, and how that changes when you are a first author vs. a coauthor. We also talk about how we mentor students through the writing process, from idea through to finished draft. We’ll cover broad concepts and specific tools of the trade.

S3E9: What is Heritability Anyway?
In this episode, Jess and Sara finally (Finally!) tackle the basic premise of behavior genetics. We talk about what kinds of research questions you can ask with genetically sensitive designs, describe what heritability is and what it’s not, and discuss just how it’s possible that scientists can use data from twin pairs to understand how much of the variance in some skill or behavior is due to genes and how much is attributable to the environment. A lot of that estimate depends on just how much genes and environments vary within a twin pair and between twin pairs (see what we did there?). In this episode we talked about: Sara’s paper with the figures that Jess describes: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41539-020-00079-z/figures/3 Here’s a cool introductory paper written for Frontiers for young minds that covers much of this introductory content: https://kids.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/frym.2019.00059 Connect with the podcast on twitter @within_between, or email us letters about developmental science at withinandbetweenpod@gmail.com.

S3E8: Planned Missing Data - This Cell Intentionally Left Blank.
If you’ve ever had to deal with missing data, you’ve probably wished you could avoid it completely in the future. So why on earth would anyone design a study where data are missing on purpose? When you set up a project, there are actually several advantages to selecting a subset of people to skip assessments, items, or waves on purpose. Jess and Sara describe those designs here, and just what the advantages are, as well as fun future directions for one specific subtype of these designs: The two-method measurement planned missingness design. Even though we start with a basic missing data overview, and you might think that missing data is scary or boring, we SWEAR this one is interesting.

S3E7: Parts of a Grant Budget
Why do you write a grant? To get money to do some sort of project of course! But how do you figure out how much money you need? Through a grant budget! But what goes into a grant budget? All kinds of things that you might expect (e.g., cost of the materials you need) and some things that you maybe don’t (e.g., Indirect costs). How can I find out what those budget-y things are and what they mean? You’re in luck, friend. That’s what Jess and Sara talk about for this whole episode! But Jess, why did you structure this whole show note blurb as questions and answers? Playing around with different narrative structures is both fun AND informative.

S3E6: Preregistrations
Preregistration is writing down your idea for how you plan to collect and analyze your data _before_ you actually start collecting or analyzing it. In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about the many benefits of preregistration, the differences between preregistration and registered reports, describe their experiences with it, discuss some resources, and (hopefully) put to rest some fears about the practice that you might have. Some resources we mention in this episode: Sara’s blog post on preregistration: https://www.womeninedresearch.com/news/preregistrations Paper Sara was thinking of when she talked about the distribution of p-values between preregistered and not preregistered work (it’s really the distribution of effect sizes): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6470248/ Garden of forking paths: http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~gelman/research/unpublished/p_hacking.pdf Preregistration templates at OSF: https://osf.io/zab38/wiki/home/ Connect with the podcast on twitter @within_between, or email us letters about developmental science at withinandbetweenpod@gmail.com.

S3E5: Trajectories have variance too!
Trajectory of heritability to the heritability of trajectories? Measuring growth in skills and abilities over time is practically (maybe literally!) synonymous with developmental science. In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about how static measurements of a skill can have different variance, and different predictors, from growth in that skill. After a general discussion, we dive into how that plays into estimates of heritability, and the difference between the trajectory of heritability and the heritability of trajectories. Our Response paper: https://psyarxiv.com/qtwhg/ Uchiyama and colleagues “Cultural Evolution of Genetic Heritability” from 2021.  Behavioral and Brain Sciences Paper mentioned that examined the heritability of general cognitive ability across ages.

S3E4: You are the search committee
In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about what it’s like to serve on an academic search committee. To those of you who are about to serve on a committee (maybe for the first time), we will take you through the whole process from writing the call to making the offer. Or those of you on the market this year, peek behind the curtain. Every search is different! Things happen very differently from university to university, and even from search to search. We want this overview to give you, the search committee member, the permission to speak up and suggest changes from the way it may have been done before.

In this episode, Jess asks Sara to talk about LDBase, the data repository she has been building designed specifically to hold developmental science data. We discuss what LDbase is, what motivated her and her colleagues to start building it, what makes it unique, and how it works. Sara even describes several excellent resources you can find on the website that make data sharing easier. Go see it for yourself at www.LDBase.org All about integrative data analysis: Curran, P.

S3E2: What’s up with Els*vier?
You may have noticed that the cycle of academic publishing is pretty broken. Scientists give their research papers to academic journals for free, then the journal puts that work behind a paywall. Sometimes institutions will pay for a package of subscriptions to these journals, often costing millions of dollars. Jess and Sara talk about this cycle, and how institutions, journals, and individuals have started to push back against it.

S3E1: Methodologists? What are those?
In this episode Jess and Sara talk about the role of methodologist in developmental science, and how it’s different from a statistician. A methodologist is a content expert and a collaborator like any other, and we do our best work when we’re involved right from the initial planning stages of a project. Why? Because nearly every decision made in a research project can have implications for statistical conclusions, and methodologists are the collaborators who keep this in mind. Think you might be interested in being a methodologist? Jess and Sara give some suggestions on how to prepare and frame your materials.

Season ALMOST 3 : Burnout.
Well the spring 2021 semester is over, and - what is this feeling? We’re a little (a lot) overwhelmed. Jess and Sara describe their experiences, and theorize a bit about why it might be particularly bad right now. Is the pandemic over here in the US? What does that mean for our jobs? That feeling of one day more can sometimes be too much. We end by suggesting, maybe, we all need a break, and to give ourselves, and our colleagues, some grace.

S2E14: Data Management Episode 2
The saga continues. In this episode we talk about the data management steps you’ll need to consider after you’ve collected your data. We talk a lot about data entry, including the science of how to do it well. We also discuss data merging, data cleaning, and the concept of “release” datasets. Finally, because it seems no episode is complete without Sara discovering something to be shocked about regarding Jess’s approach to science, we talk about the importance of backing up your data. Resources: Recent working group on data management led by Tara Reynolds and Chris: Paper about data entry methods is new in 2020, and cites a whole (fascinating!) history of similar work: Barchard, K.

You might think “data management” is just getting data ready to share, but it’s so much more. In this episode, Jess and Sara talk about the expanded universe of data management. This is the first of a two part series, and focuses on some of the things you can do to help ensure you have good quality data before you even talk to a single participant. We talk about lots of fun data management tips and tricks, from creating research protocols, assigning IDs, creating variable names, variable codes, and coding missing data. Make a rule.

S2E12: Nurture might be Nature
Turnabout is fair play in this episode as now Sara describes her new paper! Some developmental science research is focused on how the home environment is correlated (or co-occurs with) children’s skills, behaviors, or abilities. Sara explains that these correlations are also influenced by the shared genes between parents and their children, and that the genetic correlation may be inflating the true environmental correlation that scientists are seeking to measure. In this episode, she describes a few different ways that researchers can account for shared genetic influences in their work. The solutions range from very simple to very complex, but all are very exciting.

S2E11: Factor Scores
New Paper Alert! Jess and her colleagues have a paper in review about a particular statistical method that we see a lot in developmental science. Have you ever run a confirmatory factor analysis and then saved (or extracted) the factor scores, turning them into observed scores for use in another analysis? If you have more than one latent factor, the default method for extracting factor scores can have some unintended consequences on the correlations between those newly created observed variables. But also describes how you can correct it. The link to the paper gives you the code to do it yourself. This episode is a bit numbery and a bit technical, but we think relevant for developmental scientists! Note. Posted with apologies to our reading research friends. Jess did not come up with good examples of what comprises reading on the fly in this episode. I am well aware a good fonging is in order. I do know better. I am sorry.

S2E10: Within and Between Bites
To celebrate hitting our 10,000 listens benchmark, Jess and Sara spend episode 10 discussing two listener questions. First, we talk about the decision to change or not to change your last name when you get married. It’s something many developmental scientists struggle with, and we talk about how (even though it feels unique) it’s not terribly different from other professions. Second, we discuss that overwhelming feeling you sometimes get when you’re trying to manage your research pipeline, and how we (try) to (mostly) keep it at bay. Ps, how do you say ORCID?

Are you open-science curious? Ready to turn and face the strange ch-ch-changes happening in our field? Preprints are one of the most accessible steps in learning about, and might we even suggest embracing open science. To post a preprint, you put a digital copy of a completed paper online, somewhere others can read it.  In this episode, we discuss the advantages of preprints, different ways to post them, and address some of the potential barriers and common fears we hear from other scholars  when we talk about preprints.

S2E6: A few of our favorite things
For the end of 2020, we asked our listeners to name a few of their favorite things - favorite things about being a developmental scientist, that is. Our unscientific analysis of themes includes: Developmental scientists can translate our work into other fields, it’s very applicable to our parent friends, that the methods we use are creative and complex, and that working with kids is a blast (they say the darndest things). Jess and Sara discuss the submissions we received, and talk about a few of our own favorite things.  ​Links from this episode: ​Twitter thread with everyone’s favorite things is HERE.  The Popular Science book on child development that Jess mentioned: http://alisongopnik.com/TheScientistInTheCrib.htm Paper Sara mentioned by Dr. Colleen Ganley: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2016.01181/full Connect with the podcast on twitter @within_between, or email us letters about developmental science at withinandbetweenpod@gmail.com.

In this episode, Jess and Sara describe their experiences with different lab setups and structures, and how they manage their meetings with students, projects, and collaborators. We discover that Sara has been using a lab management and productivity tool secretly for years! Our systems for working with our labs, projects, and students are always changing, and Sara might be a bit too addicted with trying to find the best combination.

S204: Inter-rater reliability
As the semester draws to a close, Jess wakes up in the middle of the night concerned not with completing her grading, but with measuring inter-rater reliability for coding schemes. Reliability can refer to the agreement among raters, or agreement among items. There’s a lot of online discourse right now around reliability, but most of it is focused around the former: agreement among items. Over here in the field of developmental science, we’re often coding human behavior through observations, including implementation fidelity. With scales like these, reliability is used to mean several different types of agreement among raters: Training coders to a reliability standard, “in-field” reliability between pairs of raters, “drift check” reliability as you continue to collect data over time, and then overall or average inter-rater reliability for all raters and observations. Only after assessing all of these can you begin to examine reliability designed to assess agreement among items. Papers to read about establishing and measuring inter-rater reliability: Hallgren, K. A. (2012). Computing inter-rater reliability for observational data: an overview and tutorial. Tutorials in Quantitative Methods for Psychology, 8(1), 23. Bruton, A., Conway, J. H., & Holgate, S. T.

S203: Academic online professional presence
It is a truth universally acknowledged that an academic in 2020 must be in want of an online presence. Jess and Sara describe why you need to be online, and their experiences with social media, professional networks, and creating websites (and that twitch isn’t just what happens to Jess’s eye after 6 straight hours on zoom calls). The episode ends with our top three suggestions for how to get involved online.

S201: Catching up from season 1
In which we welcome you back to a new season of the podcast. Jess and Sara catch up on pandemic work and life. We describe the subtle and sometimes not so subtle feeling of being underwater that seems to accompany this particular time, describe how our online teaching is going, and discuss the different ways we’re translating and incorporating anti-racism into our courses. Resources: Many analyst paper Jess mentioned. Paper Sara mentioned about how when you measure something can change your understanding of developmental change on that thing. Paper Sara mentioned that’s a great qualitative study on Black mothers' perception of their child’s experience in school. A theory paper you all should be assigning in your developmental science classes.

Episode 12: Why are we here? And let it go?
Jess and Sara get a bit meta this week (some things never change), and discuss why academia is even a job. We walk through a fun and nerdy thought experiment: Is the Curriculum Vita a list of manifest variable indicators of some sort of latent variable of academia?  We discuss when and how we decide to leave a project lost in the woods. And think, for the first time in forever, about a project that we had both abandoned and almost forgotten about. Here’s the “Ginther report” Sara talked about.

Episode 11: Perfection, rejection, and impostor syndrome
There’s a close link between the concepts of Perfection and Impostor Syndrome, perhaps mediated (or moderated?) by experiences of rejection. In this episode, we discuss that link, and personify it as Sara helps Jess try to cope with rejection and encourages her to get some rejected manuscripts back under review*.

Episode 10: Revise and resubmit
In this episode we talk about rejections - paper rejections. Jess and Sara describe their emotional and not so emotional reactions to finding out whether a paper has been rejected, offered a revise and resubmit, or accepted. We also discuss how much we change a rejected manuscript before we send it elsewhere, how to craft a revision letter, and the urban legend of  papers accepted on the first submission.

Episode 9: Our COVID follow up
In this episode, we revisit how we’re working during COVID. Topics include excellent desk space (Sara) or lack thereof (Jess), and how we are and are not balancing parenting and working at the same time. We also talk about preparing to teach at a distance, and whether we’re even allowed back on campus.

Episode 8: Reviewing papers
Peer review is, for now, an essential part of the scientific process. Writing a good peer review is not easy, and we feel it’s rarely formally taught. We get no feedback on the process, so it’s difficult to learn. Listen to Jess and Sara talk about how they decide when to say yes to a review (and when to say no), how to schedule them into your work week so you don’t lose track, and what your job is as the reviewer. We also give some suggestions on how to get started reviewing, and how to ask to be on an editorial board. References we should have talked about in this episode: PLoS one has a nice description. This came out in 2007 but is still relevant: Twelve tips for reviewing a paper, and also always read the individual journal’s guidelines, some want different information than others. And some that we did mention: Yourpapersucks and the submission page. Here’s Publons, the non-dinosaur way to keep track of peer reviews.

Episode 7: Reviewing grants
Grant information continues! This time from the reviewing side. Jess and Sara talk about the process of reviewing grants for the big three US federal agencies. The grant reviewing process is an elaborate, multi-step process, which we will outline and discuss. Listen to this if you’re curious what kinds of things your reviewers are doing when they get a stack of grants to review, or if you’re new to serving on a grant panel and want a preview into what it’s like to be in the room.  Resources we talked about in this episode: The NIH Early Career Reviewer program.

Episode 6: Writing a paper: Processes, tips, and tricks for the (slightly) less organized
Writing is one of the loneliest activities. For some of us, it can be hard to keep yourself accountable, especially right now with not much of a regular schedule and lots of working from home. On this episode we talk about our paper writing process, how we go from an idea to a submission, and the wonders of co-writing. We are divided on the use of the phrase “dot-jot notes”, which google says is NOT a Canadian only thing. Resources: The Writing Workshop book - Barbara Sarnecka, Bird by Bird by Anne Lamot, also Writing Science by Joshua Schimel.

Episode 5: Grants, grants, grants!
It’s grant season! In this episode Jess and Sara talk about the way they approach writing grants. There are many different kinds of grants, so in this first grant-focused episode we briefly discuss the different funders for developmental science research, how to choose a grant mechanism to apply for, the general rules and process that we follow for any grant, and the critical role of ice cream. Resources mentioned in this episode: Institute of Education Sciences (IES) has their own webinar series, of which THIS is one, but also check out their list of resources.

Episode 4: The what, why, how, and hesitations of data sharing.
Now required by most funding agencies, data sharing is gaining some traction in developmental science. Jess and Sara happen to love data sharing, but acknowledge that others may be more hesitant. In this episode we dive into some information about how to data share, and why if you try it, you may find out you love it too. We mentioned a few data repositories, here are ICPSR, RE3Data, Databrary, and LDbase (the repository Sara is building), all of which have data relevant to developmental science. If you’re thinking about sharing your own data, you can read more about data sharing with this IES guide, and here is more information about the FAIR principles of data management and stewardship.

Episode 3: Racism in the history of developmental science
This week, we tackle the history of racism in our specific developmental science fields. We believe that Black Lives Matter. We believe it’s our job to do the anti-racist work within our own departments and fields. In thinking about actionable steps we can each take to work be anti-racist in the academy, we first acknowledge that we are two white women who can not speak to the lived experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the academy. See the rest of the show notes for excellent readings and voices to listen to about how to do anti-racist work. In this episode, we use our platform to shine light on what may be hidden to many researchers in developmental science, the white-supremacist history that underlies both behavior genetics and statistics. Increasing our own understanding and sharing the history of these fields is part of our own anti-racist work. We hope this episode will encourage you to start to study the history of your own specific subsection of the field. Some of our favorite readings and a listening list from this episode: The Scaffolded Anti-Racist document that Jessica mentioned. Books: Superior by Angela Saini (*NOTE Sara accidentally remembered this title as Inferior). The Lady Tasting Tea by David Salsburg. So you want to talk about Race, by Ijeoma Oluo. (we suggest you order these books from Black owned bookstores)! Syllabus: Thinking about re-working the syllabus, read Approaches for Multicultural Curriculum Reform by James A. Banks.
