The Journal aims to present research that will improve understanding of behavioral, in particular psychological, aspects of economic decisions and processes. It is published under the auspices of the International Association for Research in Economic Psychology (, whose aim is to promote interdisciplinary work relating to economic behavior.

The Journal seeks to be a channel for the increased interest in using behavioral science methods for the study of economic behavior, and so to contribute to better solutions of societal problems, by stimulating new approaches and new theorizing about economic affairs. Economic psychology as a discipline studies the psychological mechanisms that underlie economic behavior. It deals with decisions (individual or interactive), preferences, judgments, and factors influencing these, as well as the consequences of judgments and decisions for economics and society. Studies in economic psychology usually relate to the individual decision maker's level, though sometimes also address household or group behavior.

Historically, economic psychology has developed as a branch of psychology, while behavioral economics has risen as a sub-field of economics. Consequentially, for example, rationality assumptions have been traditionally avoided in economic psychology. Lately, however these differences are disappearing. We welcome any behavioral economics study to the journal of economic psychology. We also explicitly welcome studies in related domains including neuroeconomics, consumer psychology, voter psychology, and behavioral game theory, as long as they make a strong contribution to the understanding of psychological processes implicated in economic behavior and decisions.

Additionally, we welcome submissions from traditional areas of economic psychology, including psychological aspects associated with inflation, unemployment, poverty, taxation, economic development, economic literacy, personal finance, and market behavior.

The Journal of Economic Psychology contains: (a) Research articles: novel reports of empirical (field or experimental) research with a significant contribution to relevant theory; (b) brief reports: Empirical contributions (e.g., robustness tests), re-examinations and re-analyses, as well as short formal-analytical contributions linked to well-established empirical phenomena; (c) replication studies; (d) extensive reviews of state of the art topics in economic psychology; and (e) book reviews.

Special issues of the Journal may be devoted to themes of particular interest. Typically, an open call for proposals for a special issue is announced once per year. Interested authors should check our detailed Guide for Authors and are also suggested to check
