Replications in Economic Psychology and Behavioral Economics. Special Issue of the Journal of Economic Psychology

In this special issue, we aim to contribute to ongoing efforts in both disciplines to test the replicability of important findings, but also to tackle theoretical questions such as how to improve replicability, how to conduct proper replications, and how to decide which studies should be replicated in the first place. As such, we invite both empirical and theoretical contributions. Regarding empirical contributions to the special issue, we invite replications of previous findings relevant for economic psychology and/or behavioral or experimental economics. We invite two formats of replication studies: classic submissions based on already existing data and submissions of registered reports. Likewise, we invite two types of theoretical contributions: classic submissions of full manuscripts as well as brief proposals of planned theoretical contributions.

The Journal of Economic Psychology is an interdisciplinary platform, and in this special issue we encourage contributions from researchers in behavioral and empirical economics, psychology, management, organizational behavior, and other related social sciences. Interested authors are also invited to contact the guest editors Jürgen Huber ([email protected]), Michael Kirchler ([email protected]), Andreas Mojzisch ([email protected]), and Thomas Schultze ([email protected]) to discuss the fit of various topics to the special issue.


Manuscripts should be prepared according to the guidelines outlined on the website of the Journal of Economic Psychology (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-economic-psychology/).

Classic submissions of replication studies and theoretical contributions should be submitted as regular manuscripts.

Registered reports should contain the complete theory and method sections as well as an analysis plan, ideally accompanied by a script containing the planned analysis (e.g., R or STATA code). We will invite the revision of a complete manuscript based on an initial review of the proposed replication study. Please note that parts of the planned methodology or analyses might change as a consequence of the outcome of the review process. Thus, it is imperative that the authors only start gathering data upon invitation to resubmit a complete manuscript.

In the case of planned theoretical contributions, we first invite brief proposals (max. 5 pages excluding references) outlining the general idea and value-added. We will invite full manuscripts based on an initial review of these proposals.

All four types of manuscripts should be submitted by June 1st, 2018 (at the latest!) through the journal website. Authors should select “Replications in Economic Psychology and Behavioral Economics” as article type, and indicate in the cover letter that the manuscript should be considered for the special issue as well as the type of submission (classic empirical study, registered report, classic theoretical contribution, or proposal for a theoretical contribution).

Submitters can expect a quick turnaround time, but they will be requested to implement changes with a tight deadline in case they are invited for a “revise and resubmit”.

Authors will receive an initial decision on their original submissions within about one month. In case of a positive decision, authors will be invited to resubmit a revision of their original manuscript (in the case of classic empirical and theoretical contributions), a complete manuscript including the results of the planned analyses as well as their discussion (in the case of registered reports), or a full manuscript (in case of proposed theoretical contributions).

The deadline for resubmissions is February 1st, 2019 for all types of contributions.
