α 0.16.1

Version Notes for PsychLing

α Alpha

This website is in the alpha phase of development, meaning that it's currently being worked on. We have decided to make Psycholinguistics.org available to the public during all development phases. The website may not contain all planned features and services. Many features may be incomplete, which can hinder user experience and reliability.

You can expect the following:

  • Major bugs
  • Downtime
  • Ongoing testing and rapid feature release cycles
  • Missing or incomplete data
  • Slow load times

If you are doing academic or scholarly research, it is safe to rely on the accuracy of our data. For more information, check our release notes.
