Special Issue of the Journal of Mathematical Psychology in Honor of R. Duncan Luce

The Journal of Mathematical Psychology will honor the legacy and contributions of R. Duncan Luce with a special issue. The Journal seeks submissions of manuscripts for peer review that present new research or perspective on the diverse topics of mathematical psychology that were influenced by Luce, including, but not limited to:  theory and/or experiment on deterministic or probabilistic choice and utility; measurement; response time; psychophysics; and game theory. However, the primary criterion for publication in the special issue is exceptional scientific research conducted in the tradition of mathematical psychology established by Luce. This special issue will be co-edited by A. A. J. Marley, Clintin Davis-Stober, and Ragnar Steingrimsson.


We plan for the special issue to include research articles and integrative retrospective and/or prospective articles. We invite potential contributors to discuss ideas or plans for submissions with the guest editors. A formal expression of interest, including a tentative title and abstract, should be submitted to A. A. J. Marley ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) on or before February 28, 2015; we strongly encourage early contact. The submission deadline is September 30, 2015.
