I invite you to submit your research to a Special Issue of GAMES. This Special Issue will be devoted to experimental studies of social dilemma problems. We envisage a fairly broad scope for this Special Issue and we will consider all studies that used experimental methods to look at a variety of social dilemma problems, such as voluntary contribution mechanisms or common pool resource extraction problems. However, we do recognize that this is an increasingly crowded field and so, while we will seriously consider all submissions, some preference will be given to novel applications of the methodology. Such applications may include, but are not restricted to, field experiments or artifactual lab experiments on collective action problems, such as the management of common pool resources, endogenous formation of networks and social norms, neuro-economic studies of contributions and punishments, and studies that try to understand to what extent behavior in the lab translates to that in the field.
