SJDM LAUNCHES THE NEW IT’S YOUR CHOICE BLOG

The Society for Judgment and Decision Making (JDM Society) has gone a long time without a web log. They have a journal, a newsletter, and a fine conference, but until recently no blog to call their own.

That changes now with the launch of It’s Your Choice, edited by Laura Scherer and Gaëlle Vallée-Tourangeau. The tagline is “a cutting edge research digest about behavioral decision science from the Society for Judgment and Decision Making”.

The kick-off post is here. In it, Laura and Gaëlle say that will mainly be publishing 800-1000 word research briefs contributed submitted by authors like you (Decision Science News Readers), in addition to these other kinds of posts:

  • methodology posts discussing important issues relevant to conducting of JDM research or introducing new methodological procedures for studying JDM.
  • explainers which aim to provide the background knowledge necessary to understand current topical JDM research
  • opinion columns where authors are free to express their views on hot topics relevant to JDM
  • reflective commentaries describing a practical “real-world” JDM issues

The post kick-off post post is by Dan Goldstein, former SJDM President, on what JDM is and what it isn’t.

Submit your own content to It’s Your Choice.

Judgment and Decision Making leads in open data

JDM IS TOO LEGIT TO CEASE IN ITS LEGITIMACY

We came across this article that looks at the relationship between sharing data and other variables of interest.

We were especially interested in its Figure 1 which shows the percentage articles having open data. The journals listed are:

JDM – Judgment and Decision Making
PLOS – Public Library of Science
PS – Psychological Science
JBDM – Journal of Behavioral Decision Making
FP – Frontiers in Psychology

Closed circle – No open data policy that year
Open cirle – Open data policy that year

We were delighted to see JDM leading the pack on this important issue. This is due to the tireless efforts of Jon Baron, who almost single handedly produces the journal. From making editorial decisions to typsetting the articles, Jon does it all without a publisher and almost entirely without a budget. It’s an amazing thing, the likes of which we’ve never seen. It’s a testament to what one person can achieve. We are glad to see it getting some recognition here.

Filed in SJDM
Subscribe to Decision Science News by Email (one email per week, easy unsubscribe)

DEADLINE JUNE 19, 2017

The Society for Judgment and Decision Making is inviting submissions for the Hillel Einhorn New Investigator Award. The purpose of this award is to encourage outstanding work by new researchers. Individuals are eligible if they have not yet completed their Ph.D. or if they have completed their Ph.D. within the last five years (on or after July 1, 2012). To be considered for the award, please submit a journal-style manuscript on any topic related to judgment and decision making.

In the case of co-authored papers, if the authors are all new investigators they can be considered jointly; otherwise, the new investigator(s) must be the primary author(s) and should be the primary source of ideas. Submissions in dissertation format will not be considered, but articles based on a dissertation are encouraged. Both reprints of published articles and manuscripts that have not yet been published are acceptable. We ask for submissions with names, affiliations, and author notes removed for blind
review. Submissions that are not properly anonymized will be invalid.

There have been two changes in policy. First, a given paper can only be submitted for consideration once. Thus, papers submitted in any prior year may not be submitted this year. Second, you must be a member at the time of submission. You need your member password to submit. If you are not a member, you should join by 17 June so as to be sure to have your password before the deadline. Instructions on becoming a member are here: http://www.sjdm.org/join.html.

Submissions will be judged by a committee appointed by the Society. To be considered, submissions must be received by 19 June, 2017 (11:59 PM, Pacific Time). The committee will announce the results to the participants by 10 October 2017. The award will be announced and presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Judgment and Decision Making. The winner must be available to accept the award at the annual meeting and will be invited to give a presentation of their paper. Do not submit a paper if you know that you cannot attend this year’s annual meeting. If the winner cannot obtain full funding from his/her own institution to attend the meeting, an application may be made to the Society for supplemental travel needs.

Submission instructions and the submission portal are available here: http://www.sjdm.org/awards/einhorn.html.

SOCIETY FOR JUDGMENT AND DECISION MAKING: CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The Society for Judgment and Decision Making (SJDM) invites abstracts for oral presentations and posters on any interesting topic related to judgment and decision making. Completed manuscripts are not required (i.e., it’s non archival).

LOCATION, DATES, AND PROGRAM

SJDM’s annual conference will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, November 10-13, 2017. The conference will take place at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel. Plenary events will include a keynote talk on Sunday, November 12 delivered by Robert Cialdini and Richard Thaler.

SUBMISSIONS

The deadline for submissions is Monday, June 19, 2017, end of the day. Submissions for oral presentations, and posters should be made through the SJDM website at http://www.sjdm.org/abstract-review/htdocs Technical questions can be addressed to the webmaster, Jon Baron, at webmaster@sjdm.org. All other questions can be addressed to the program chair, Suzanne Shu, at suzanne.shu@anderson.ucla.edu.

ELIGIBILITY

At least one author of each presentation must be a member of SJDM, by one week after the deadline for submission (to allow time for dues paid by mail). You may join SJDM at http://www.sjdm.org/join.html. An individual may give only one talk and present only one poster, but may be a co-author on multiple talks and/or posters. Please note that both the membership rule and the one-talk/one-poster rule will be strictly enforced.

NOTE FOR NON-CANADIAN CITIZENS REQUIRING VISAS

Travelers from certain countries may need extra lead time to obtain travel documents. Although we are unable to accept talks early, we can provide notification of an “accepted presentation.” This means that you would at least be guaranteed a poster. We can do this because posters are typically evaluated only for content and most are accepted. To take advantage of this option, you should still submit through the regular process, make sure to indicate that you are willing to present a poster, and also send a request to the program chair, Suzanne Shu, at suzanne.shu@anderson.ucla.edu.

AWARDS

The Best Student Poster Award is given for the best poster presentation whose first author is a student member of SJDM.

The Hillel Einhorn New Investigator Award is intended to encourage outstanding work by new researchers. Applications are due June 19, 2017. Further details are available at http://www.sjdm.org/awards/einhorn.html. Questions can be directed to Gretchen Chapman, gretchen.chapman@rutgers.edu.

The Jane Beattie Memorial Fund subsidizes travel to North America for a foreign scholar in pursuits related to judgment and decision research, including attendance at the annual SJDM meeting. Further details will be available at http://www.sjdm.org/awards/beattie.html.

PROGRAM COMMITTEE

Suzanne Shu (Chair), Oleg Urminsky, Danny Oppenheimer, Nina Mazar, Thorsten Pachur, Dan Schley, Bettina von Helversen, and Kate Wessels and Kaye de Kruif (conference co-coordinators)

CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

After a hiatus of ten years, the 25th Annual International Meeting of the Brunswik Society will be held on Thursday, November 9, 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia, at the Vancouver Convention Center West. The program will begin at 9:00 am and end at 6:00 pm.

This meeting is dedicated to the memory of the late Kenneth R. Hammond, on the occasion of his 100th birthday. We invite papers and/or panel discussion proposals on any theoretical or empirical/applied topic directly related to Egon Brunswik’s theoretical lens model framework and method of representative design, including approaches based on Brunswikian principles. Proposals focusing on Ken Hammond’s contributions to the Brunswikian tradition are especially encouraged.

Please send a brief abstract (125 words), and indicate whether the paper/discussion is theoretical or empirical, to Mandeep Dhami by Monday, July 3rd. Kindly respect this submission due date. We cannot guarantee a presenting slot to those who do not meet the submission deadline.

Meeting organizers are Mandeep Dhami (m.dhami at mdx.ac.uk) and Jeryl Mumpower (jmumpower at tamu.edu). The meeting is held concurrently with the Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting and just before the Judgment and Decision Society meeting. More details about the 2017 meeting, including registration instructions, will be posted on the Brunswik Society website, at http://brunswik.org.

NOTE: Putting a “c” in Brunswik is a rookie mistake.
