New preprint out: Psychological distance to science as a predictor of science skepticism across domains

In this paper, we present psychological distance to science (PSYDISC) as a domain-general predictor of science skepticism. Over the course of 5 studies, we established the validity and factor structure of the PSYDISC scale. Furthermore, we found that psychological distance strongly predicted science skepticism in various domains beyond other established predictors. The whole preprint can be found here:
