What is the key tenet that rationalizes why quantum formalism in social science and especially in social choice and decision-making can be used? This is a central question that has not been previously answered. In classic physics, events, when seen as sets in a sigma-algebra, are described by one sample space with a single basis of coordinates (one framework) as in classical probability. The concept of ‘unicity’ essentially indicates that a single framework can describe all observed events. However, in decision-making, there is no reason to believe there is only one framework, which can capture all events.
This Special Issue will collect research that is being performed around applying elements of the formalism of quantum mechanics to the social sciences. There will be a particular focus on the key tenet(s) that rationalize(s) why the quantum formalism can be used in economics (in social choice and decision-making). As a central objective, this Special Issue will rigorously explore the foundational connections between economics and quantum theory.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Quantum Reports is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
