Abstract

Psychological researchers’ generosity with scientific knowledge has never been in doubt; their eager efforts to share eyewitness research findings with the legal system date at least from Hugo Munsterberg’s On The Witness Stand in 1908. This Handbook includes just the latest in a very long line of calls on researchers to “give psychology away” to the legal system (Miller, 1969; Van Wallendael, Davenport, Cutler, & Penrod, this volume), and through the years psychologists have responded energetically to those calls (Loftus, 1983).
