APA publishes new scientific journal: Decision

Journal takes multidisciplinary approach to judgment and decision-making.

The American Psychological Association has added a new title to its roster of scientific journals. Decision is a multidisciplinary research journal focused on a theoretical understanding of neural, cognitive, social and economic aspects of judgment and decision-making behavior.

Decision  publishes articles on all areas related to judgment and decision-making research including probabilistic inference, prediction, evaluation, choice, decisions under risk or uncertainty, and economic games. The journal publishes articles that present new theory or new empirical research addressing theoretical issues or both.

The journal publishes three types of articles: long articles that make major theoretical contributions, shorter articles that make major empirical contributions addressing important theoretical issues, and brief review articles that target rapidly rising theoretical trends or new theoretical topics in decision making.

The editor of Decision is Jerome R. Busemeyer of Indiana University. See the Decision journal webpage for additional information.
