Special Issue "Psychological Aspects of Strategic Choice"
A special issue of Games (ISSN 2073-4336).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 September 2015).
This special issue of GAMES is devoted to investigations of psychological factors affecting strategy choices in social dilemmas and other games. Ever since psychologists began studying experimental games in the 1950s, it has been clear that human decision makers do not follow the prescriptions of normative game theory. From the late 1980s, behavioral game theory has reinforced this early finding and has contributed numerous hypotheses about the psychological processes underlying human strategic choice. Understanding and explaining strategic choice are among the most important problems in the behavioral and social sciences. Clearly written manuscripts reporting new evidence or theory are potentially suitable for the special issue. The keywords below are merely indicative.
