One of the main goals of Psychology 2.0 is to be a virtual space, where people who like to read psychology related articles meet those people who have interesting and new ideas to publish in this field.

Before starting to read the first articles, it is worthwhile familiarizing yourself with three easy tools that will make reading the articles more comfortable:

Navigation using the Table of Contents

In the top-left corner you will find Display Settings, a control panel that allows you to set how much detail you would like to see from an article.

There are two main options:

If you choose 'Text', you can hide the non-core elements of the text. This option is recommended for those who are familiar with reading scientific publications.

Some are disturbed by the many links and multi-media that you find on the internet. You can hide these. Note that the links pointing to other articles will not disappear, only the external links will go.

More space for reading by hiding the SideBar
