Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research on social dilemmas is a topic of the social sciences, including economics, sociology, political science, and social psychology, to name only a few. This Special Issue is explicitly open to contributions from different social science disciplines as well as interdisciplinary work. Submissions based on formal game-theoretic modeling as well as informal but sufficiently rigorous “game-theory-inspired reasoning”, including, for example agent-based modeling, are welcome. We are specifically inviting submissions that address social dilemma problems in new research domains and fields such as incentive problems in science as a social system and studies on exchange involving illegal transactions on online platforms in the dark net. With respect to methods, submissions employing experimental designs (lab, online, and/or field) are welcome, as are studies with quasi-experimental designs using observational data from traditional (survey) and new sources (online), and meta-analyses. Papers using neuroscience methods are likewise welcome. We will also be happy to consider papers of a more methodological nature. This could be papers that combine complementary methodologies and designs to address the same research questions or test similar hypotheses. Papers that focus on linking micro and macro levels of analysis are also welcome.
