Call for Papers: Group Decision Making

New Content ItemDecisions made by groups can be influenced by diverse perspectives, information, and expertise. Past work has demonstrated that such diversity can improve the quality of the resulting decisions (e.g., the wisdom of crowds). However, research has also demonstrated that interaction (e.g., discussion among the group members) can hurt the quality of group decisions (e.g., group polarization). When and why groups produce these contrasting outcomes is the subject of ongoing research. We invite you to contribute to this special issue addressing these questions and more.

Aims and scope

Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications publishes new empirical and theoretical work covering all areas of Cognition, with a special emphasis on use-inspired basic research: fundamental research that grows from hypotheses about real-world problems. We expect that authors will be able to explain in a Significance section how their basic research serves to advance our understanding of the cognitive aspects of a problem with real-world applications.
