Although I joined Wikipedia earlier and I made my first tentative edits in June 2007, I began to contribute more heavily to Wikipedia in the spring of 2008.

In May and June 2008 I did most of my Wikipedia editing and writing for the health psychology entry. Like most Wikipedeans, I built upon what came before me. I added new text, edited previous writing, checked facts including citations, emended citations based on searches of the research literature, and added new citations. I also included two lists of doctoral programs, one in health psychology and the other in occupational health psychology (since removed and moved to the occupational health psychology entry).

In June 2008 I created the entry devoted to occupational health psychology because it is an emergent field within psychology. I thought there was a need for such an entry. However, I did not do much more with the entry than set it up.


I also tried to internationalize the English entries. I linked the health psychology entry to a parallel entry in French. I also linked the French entry to the English entry. My next step was to initiate an entry on occupational health psychology (OHP) for the French version of Wikipedia, and cross-link the English and French OHP entries. Although I have knowledge of French, I enlisted someone who is more fluent in French than I am to help me with the French OHP entry.

On Nov. 8, 2008, I started a French OHP page, fr:Psychologie de la santé au travail. It is cross-linked with the English OHP page. I hope my starting the French OHP page can precipitate more OHP pages in a variety of languages. I would like to Wikipedeans who are more fluent in French than I am to elaborate the French OHP entry.

More efforts[edit]

In July 2008 I turned my attention to the entry devoted to the City College of New York, including work on the entry called the List of City College of New York people.

It wasn't until September 2008 that I began to work more productively on developing the OHP entry. Over time, I started a total of 35 English-language Wikipedia entries and one French-language entry. I started and elaborated the entry on occupational health psychology. In January and February 2009, I began to create entries for OHP-related journals including Work & Stress (the original and the redirect), the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, the Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment & Health (the original and the redirect), the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Organizational Research Methods, Occupational Medicine, the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, Psychosomatic Medicine (journal), the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, and Professional Psychology: Research and Practice. I also initiated Wikipedia entries for two OHP-related organizations, the Society for Occupational Health Psychology and the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology. In September 2011, I began Wikipedia entries for two individuals, Isidor Chein and Maurice M. Rapport. In April 2012, I created an entry for Irving Millman.

Other entries I created include Health Psychology (journal), natural science (psychology) (the original and the redirect), and basic science (psychology). On June 2, 2013, I began the entry for the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.

I also edited and wrote for the Wikipedia entry covering Samuel J. Tilden High School in Brooklyn, NY. I am a graduate of Tilden High School. Finally--and this was more for fun--, I got caught up with a British TV show called Spooks; the show is about agents of the British intelligence service MI-5. I edited different entries devoted to several episodes and helped summarize episodes.

Other efforts include work on the entries on study design, contingency table, industrial and organizational psychology, and natural experiment.

In May 2009, I observed a number of problems in the school violence entry. I began to edit, and add to, the entry. Beginning in February 2011 and throughout much of the year, I added to the concept inventory entry.

In February and March 2012, I worked on improving the entry on Henry Ford. I had done some reading on Ford and Fordism, and became interested in the entry.

On April 1, 2014, I began to work on improving the writing in the organizational behavior entry. On April 14, 2014, I began to contribute to the entry on Elton Mayo, one of the founders of the field known as organizational behavior.

Between October 6 and October 19, 2015, I broke up the entry on school violence, which had contained sections on school violence in different countries, and created separate Wikipedia entries for each country. These entries include school violence in Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Japan, Poland, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

In March and April 2016, I edited a good deal of the Revised NEO Personality Inventory entry.

Note to user WhatamIdoing. You were very helpful in the past, and I thought you could answer a question. If you visit the developmental psychology entry or outline of psychology entry you will notice that the psychology template is transcluded on the bottom of the page. When you look at the page, why isn't the template open as it is on many other psychology Wikipedia entries, for example in the abnormal psychology entry? I know that I could click the word "show", and the full template will appear. However, in the abnormal psychology entry , the psychology template is visible, and the button reads "hide". Thanks. Iss246 (talk) 01:06, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Response from WhatamIdoing who is unfailingly helpful: "Hello, Iss246! What a fascinating question. It appears that the answer is because there is only one navbox on the abnormal psych article. The default is to have it open if there is only one, but if there are two or more, then it autocollapses. I think that you can change this behavior (assuming all the usual "everyone agrees it's a good idea" issues) by typing bracket-bracketPsychology |state=uncollapsedbracket-bracket instead of just plain bracket-bracketPsychologybracket-bracket where the navbox should display.
