SSSP Research Registry

Research Registry

The SSSP Research Registry integrates members and SSSP funded research activities into a coherent story focusing on methodology and research results. This Research Registry is an integral part of the Society's efforts "to advance basic and applied scientific research, disseminate research findings to broad audiences, and foster communication about the specialty of school psychology."


Our intended audience includes those interested in school psychology research; members of SSSP and non-member affiliates including graduate students and researchers from related disciplines like special education, clinical psychology, and speech and language therapy. To learn about the purpose, content, access, and use of the SSSP Research Registry continue reading.

The SSSP Research Registry has three purposes:

  • Facilitate communication among active researchers in school psychology by posting information about their program(s) of research, unpublished research tools, and emerging methods;
  • Facilitate access to research materials and possible collaborations for developing researchers, in particular, graduate students in school psychology and related disciplines; and
  • Communicate the breadth and depth of school psychology research to persons interested in the field.

The content to be registered covers two areas and includes information about:

  • People – members of SSSP and affiliates with SSSP (e.g., non-members who are university faculty, research scientists, scientist/practitioners, & graduate students in a school psychology program)
  • Members' of research programs – brief narrative descriptions (150-200 words) of research programs that are keyed to a topical taxonomy that is compatible with organizers commonly used in our discipline. If extant data sets are available for subsequent research, it should be indicated.

How do you get access to the information in the registry and submit material to the SSSP Research Registry?

Access to search the site is unrestricted. All postings to the registry, however, must be screened to preserve the integrity of the site. Only SSSP members and graduate students in school psychology programs have permission to post information within the registry.  To post information in the registry, contact Ryan J. Kettler at

How do you use the Research Registry?

To access information in any section, you can simply go to the index for each section or you can conduct a search using topic descriptors (e.g., broader descriptors like assessment, consultation, intervention or narrower descriptors like cognitive abilities testing, conjoint behavioral consultation) or the name of the researcher.


Notice. Individuals posting content in the Research Registry are responsible for the accuracy and authenticity of the information posted. Misrepresentation or falsification of information is considered professional misconduct. Authors who wish to post a pre-publication manuscript or a copyrighted article on their Registry Program of Research page should consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th Edition) particularly Section 8.05, pages 237-239.
