Call for unpublished experiments on the effects of priming on creativity

We are conducting a systematic review and a meta-analysis of experiments that used priming as a method to examine how different variables influence the creative performance of individuals.

We are looking for:

  • conference presentations and posters
  • bachelor and master theses
  • dissertations
  • unpublished manuscripts
  • work currently in progress or in press. 

We would appreciate any unpublished experiments that could possibly match our criteria, regardless of the results. We will of course be glad to acknowledge your contribution in our future publications. 

Please send any unpublished experiments that you think might fit our criteria to Marta Wronska (University of Groningen, the Netherlands).


What kind of studies are we looking for? 

Generally, we are interested in all experiments on the effects of priming on creativity. These studies could use a wide variety of methods to prime a wide variety of constructs. For example, we are interested in studies that prime distrust using a scrambled sentences task, studies that prime broad attention by asking participants to look at a wide visual area, or studies that prime unusual experiences in a virtual reality setting. 

We thank you in advance for your help! Please feel free to forward this call to colleagues that may have relevant work they might want to share.
