Special Issue - Foundations of Probability Theory
Wednesday, 11 February 2015 15:12

The Journal of Mathematical Psychology will publish a special issue on the topic "Foundations of Probability Theory and Their Significance in Psychology and Beyond." The submissions sought for peer-review can be on all foundational issues in probability theory, such as the nature and structure of random variables, probabilisitic contextuality, probabilisitic couplings, non-Kolmogorovean probability theories (such as quantum probabilities, negative probabilities, etc.), structure of random processes, axiomatics of probability theory. This list is not exhaustive, other topics are welcome. To be considered for this special issue the emphasis of the submission should be on the fundamental philosophical and mathematical issues. Cross-disciplinary connections, e.g., with computability theory and quantum theory, are especially welcome. The contributors are likely to be asked to (expeditiously) review at least one other submission.

This special issue will be edited by Ehtibar Dzhafarov, Janne Kujala, and Reinhard Suck. A formal expression of interest, including a tentative title and abstract, should be submitted to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it on or before April 15, 2015. The papers should be submitted before September 15, 2015. We intend to put the special issue into production by the end of 2015. Appeals to editorial decisions will be handled by Editor-in-Chief, Philip Smith.
