Under/post graduate psychology students at UK universities are invited to take part in a unique competition to get their research published and win £1500 through ‘Get Published’, a competition run by Cognisco.

Recent research from Cognisco, a global market-leader in online assessment and learning, has found that a staggering 23 per cent of employees misunderstand at least one crucial aspect of their job, and are inviting students with an interest in occupational psychology to use their research to help businesses explore the cost of this statistic.

Cognisco is inviting students to submit research on one of the following topics:
- Employee understanding and competence in their role
- The advantages and disadvantages of evaluating worker’s performance
- How learning and training can be assessed effectively.

A full list of topic areas and further competition details can be found at

Students are also being invited to join the dedicated Facebook and Bebo groups ‘Psychology students ‘Get Published’ and win cash’ to discuss topic areas and ideas.

All entries will be judged by Cognisco’s in-house team of occupational psychologists and experts, including Jane Massey, Return on Investment Institute leader in the UK. Ten successful winners will win a cash prize of £750 and see their work published on where it will be read by businesses worldwide. The author of the published work that has the highest number of downloads by 30th June 2008 will receive a further £1500 and offered the opportunity to gain work experience at Cognisco.

Mary Clarke, CEO of Cognisco commented: “Our insight into the way organizations work and their staff behave is built on the work of talented psychologists. That’s why, we believe it is essential to support and reward the next generation of psychologists. Our competition will ensure bright young talent has the opportunity to work with some of the UK’s leading occupational psychologists and help shape and inform global businesses on the true cost of employee incompetence.”

The Cognisco ‘Get Published’ competition closes on 31st May 2008.
