American Psychology 1922-1947.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/american-psychology-1922-1947/

Many thanks to staff at the American Psychological Association, Taylor and Francis and Phi Beta Kappa who have helped us to establish that these papers can be recorded legally by volunteers who live in the United States or countries that recognise the Rule of the Shorter Term.

Rule of the Shorter Term applies to many countries, including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, France, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Jordan, The Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. Canada does not apply the Rule, but sections 1 and 3 can be recorded by Canadians, because of the death dates of the authors. Section 1 can also be recorded in any country that has a death +70 rule.
This is the second of what is intended to be three projects featuring journal articles which chart the development of psychology as an academic discipline in the United States during the twentieth century. This collection includes key texts in the development of behaviourism, neuropsychological testing, the psychology of race and humanist therapeutic psychology.

  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. The target completion date for this project is 31 March 2012.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): See the links in the Magic Window Below. Please read footnotes, but do not read any notes made by the webmaster of the site you are reading from. Please ask if you come across diagrams and are not sure how to handle them.
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.


    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening!

    Level of prooflistening requested: Word perfect - please check that readings accurately reflect the text.

  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!
Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
Start of recording (Intro)
  • [Article title]. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the Public Domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit LibriVox-dot-org.

    If you wish say: Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]

    Then begin the reading with: [Article title] by [author name].
End of recording
  • At the end of the section, say: End of [Article title]

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!
    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  • AFTER recording:

    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    americanpsychology2_##.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. americanpsychology2_01.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags

    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Article title]
    Artist: [Name of author]
    Album: American Psychology 1922-1947

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)

    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

Please feel free to claim any sections you like. A number of them have tables in, so please make sure you know how you are going to handle these before you start recording. I'll take a look at each of those sections and try to come up with some instructions if I can in due course.

Thanks-

Only the dark, dark night shows to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of organ majestic, or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the symphony true."

When we're done with this, there will also be a vol 3, you know.

Hi Carl,

I'd like to take section 2 - 'A Laboratory Study of Fear' if that works.

I'll hold off from recording until you say so (due to the tables).

Marc

Hi Marc.

This isn't the law or anything, so please feel free to disagree...

For section 2...

Read the table starting "Play room and crib" normally - but remember to read it left to right, not in two columns.

The degrees of toleration A to Q should be read normally, but for " do not say "ditto" or "as above", say the word.

For the graph I suggest saying "Illustration: a graph plotting degrees of toleration A to Q over time" - the actual contents of the graph are well enough described in the text for the reader's benefit, I think.

Cheers,
Carl.

I'll take section 1.

Are we reading the footnotes (references)?

Yes, please read the footnotes where they occur in the body of the text (not as a list at the end).

I'll sign you up, thanks.

Cheers,
Carl.

Thanks Carl, and probably I was not clear in the last post, but I would like to claim section 16 and 17 still.
