At the eve of the 40th anniversary of the Journal of Economic Psychology: standards, practices, and challenges


Alos-Ferrer, Carlos; Yechiam, Eldad (2020). At the eve of the 40th anniversary of the Journal of Economic Psychology: standards, practices, and challenges. Journal of Economic Psychology, 80:102309.

Abstract

The Journal of Economic Psychology (JoEP) is a veteran in the research field. JoEP was established by Fred van Raaij, who served as its first editor, and is the official journal of the International Association for Research in Economic Psychology (IAREP). It aims to present research that will improve understanding of psychological aspects of economic decisions and and processes. We, the current editors of the journal, took over in 2019 (CA-F in January, with EY joining in June), and we have delayed publishing the traditional editorial until now, well into our second year, so that we do not speak just of intentions, but also of actual practices. We view the journal as more than the leading journal in the field of Economic Psychology (which of course it is). We also view it as a meeting point of the academic cultures, and it is our fervent hope that the journal will continue to reap the advances in research practices in and beyond the disciplines of Psychology and Economics, especially those practices that have the potential to fertilize different disciplines. In this editorial, we aim to elaborate on the research, statistical, and editorial practices we endorse (or do not endorse), the reasons behind our position, the recent changes that we have implemented, and a few challenges that we, as a journal, are currently facing.
