The journal Judgment and Decision Making has published the third special issue on “Recognition processes in inferential decision making (III)” edited by Julian N. Marewski, Rüdiger F. Pohl and Oliver Vitouch.  At first, there was supposed to be just one special issue on the topic, but so many good articles were received it was expanded to two (which explains our older post referring to “first of two” special issues) and now it has been expanded again to a third and final issue. All the articles address the recognition heuristic [Goldstein, D. G. & Gigerenzer, G. (2002). Models of ecological rationality: The recognition heuristic. Psychological Review, 109, 75-90.]

This volume features a nice article by John Hauser, an MIT Marketing prof and a new contributor to JDM, on how recognition-based heuristics relate to the marketing literature. We at DSN think this is a very promising area for future research.
