I first ran across this site while working on a research design for Beth’s political psychology class. Jake’s post about the Harvard decision lab reminded me of it. It is a face research lab at the University of Aberdeen. Everyone there is focused on the same research agenda, and the result is a lot of multi-authored publications, and a lot of publications per author. Check out the lists under the publications button. If publications are a concern, it is an approach that seems to result in prolific outputs, though obviously in a constrained research program.
It seems to me that it might be an approach that could work in the biopolitics arena, or even more broadly in a multi-disciplinary biopsych lab at UNL.
