Psychological Game Theory: Special Issue of the ournal of Economic Behavior & Organization (JEBO)

Guest editors:

Martin Dufwenberg, University of Arizona
Amrish Patel, University of East Anglia 

Submission deadline: 31st January, 2018

Psychological Game Theory is a formal framework for studying strategic interaction when players have belief-dependent motivations, such as intentions-based reciprocity, emotions (e.g. anger, guilt, regret, disappointment, anxiety), or concern with others’ opinion (e.g. social respect). The framework was first introduced by Geanakoplos, Pearce and Stacchetti (1989, GEB) and further developed by Battigalli and Dufwenberg (2009; JET). Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization (JEBO) will publish a special issue which aims to gather frontier related research. Relevant topics include

  • basic theory,
  • experimental tests,
  • applied work, and
  • reflections on the field.

Some of the articles will be presented at the 2nd Workshop on Psychological Game Theory, to be held at the University of East Anglia in July 2017.

Submission: Please submit your manuscript online via JEBO’s online submission and editorial system, and select article type “Psychological Game Theory.” To be considered for publication, manuscripts must be received by 31st January, 2018. Please conform to the standard guidelines for submission to JEBO. Details can be found in the Guide for Authors section at the Journal’s website http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-economic-behavior-and-organi.... JEBO’s standard submission fee is waived for this special issue.

One-revision policy: To speed up the revision process, we will apply a one-revision policy. All publication decisions will be made after no more than one revision. Submissions are first screened by the editors, and those within the scope of the special issue are then sent to expert referees for evaluation.

We expect the special issue to appear in print in the third quarter of 2018.
