Call for Submissions
Research in Experimental Economics (REE) series
The Study of Culture in Economics:
Experimental Approaches and Contributions
Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2017
Topics for the target volume
Culture is one of the key constructs in International Business (e.g., Leung et al, 2005; Caprar, 2015), but is increasingly getting attention in other domains as well. Economists are interested
on how culture, broadly defined, affects economic and political behavior and outcomes like savings decisions, trust, tastes for redistribution, fairness, risk tolerance, economic growth, openness to trade, and more. This volume will focus on the contributions
experimental economics can make to the culture-related questions confronting economists. In particular, we encourage submissions of lab and field experiments on any groups or social units where culture is a key variable of interest, along with studies that
empirically investigate the validity of culture measurements, and how culture measured in the lab translates to the field.
A key requirement for submission is that participants are monetarily incentivized, since paying subjects according to the decisions they make during the experiment is a defining feature of
REE submissions are externally reviewed. The review criteria are the same as those used in major research journals (e.g. relevance of the topic, quality of the research design, etc.). However, it is important to note that REE
has the freedom to consider papers that may not fit certain constraints of traditional journals in spite being valuable contributions. Some examples of such contributions are: replication studies, publication of null results, research that requires longer
manuscripts for presentation of data or analysis, and papers focused on methodological topics.
Interested authors are encouraged to contact the volume editors as soon as possible. For full consideration, completed manuscripts must be received by February 1, 2017. Space for inclusion in this volume is limited.
