Moravian Psychology Professor Dana Dunn Develops Online Resource for Scholars

Oxford Bibliographies Online: PsychologyBethlehem, Pa., December 19, 2011—For over a year, Psychology Professor Dana S. Dunn, Moravian College, has been working with Oxford University Press on a new scholarly bibliography resource—Oxford Bibliographies Online: Psychology or "OBO: Psychology"--which was launched on the internet recently. OBO: Psychology is a ready, reliable resource for scholars and researchers, practitioners, teachers, and students to access classic, contemporary, and cutting edge scholarship in psychology, much of which is now available in online venues.

Anyone with expertise in or curiosity about a psychological topic can use the online technologies to locate relevant bibliographic indexes, library catalogs, and numerous related references works. OBO: Psychology is a quick, comprehensive, and efficient source for exploring or staying current with the growing science of psychology. The current list of topics and contributors, as well as more information about this project and other OBO disciplinary modules, may be found at www.oxfordbibliographiesonline.com. OBO: Psychology is one of the 21 scholarly bibliographic modules now available from Oxford University Press. Other modules include Political Science, Islamic Studies, Philosophy, Sociology, and Biblical Studies.

As Editor-in-Chief of OBO: Psychology, Dunn developed the bibliographic topics for the initial three years of OBO: Psychology. He also recruited an international group of psychology scholars to serve on the Founding Editorial Board and the subsequent Standing Editorial Board. Working with Dunn, these board members assign, review, and edit bibliographic contributions written by experts in the discipline.

Dana S. Dunn earned his B.A. in psychology from Carnegie Mellon University and received his Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Virginia. Former chair of the Psychology Department and Philosophy Department at Moravian College, he is currently assistant dean for special projects and professor of psychology there. The author or editor of 15 books and over 120 journal articles, chapters, and book reviews, his scholarship examines teaching, learning, and liberal education, as well as the social psychology of disability. A fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Association for Psychological Science (APS), Dunn served as president of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (APA Division 2) in 2010. He is currently editor-in-chief of the Oxford Bibliographies Online (OBO): Psychology.
