The Society for Mathematical Psychology promotes the advancement and communication of research in mathematical psychology and related disciplines. Mathematical psychology is broadly defined to include work of a theoretical character that uses mathematical methods, formal logic, or computer simulation. The Society journal is the Journal of Mathematical Psychology.

JMP Special Issue on Quantum Probability
Saturday, 04 July 2015 18:20

The Journal of Mathematical Psychology will publish a special issue on the topic “Quantum Probability and Contextuality in Psychology and Economics." The submissions sought for peer-review can be on the use of quantum-theory-related themes and formalisms (including quantum probability and  contextuality analysis) in any area of behavioral and social sciences and economics. The expected submissions will range from theoretical or philosophical issues to experimental work.

The special issue is based on the highly successful symposium "Quantum like models in economics and psychology” held at the 2015 conference "Quantum Theory: from Foundations to Technologies” at the Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. We expect the conference contributions to form the basis for and core of the special issue. Contributions from outside this symposium, however, are welcome. If the number of the contributions exceeds the capacity of the issue, the contributors may be asked to shorten their papers, or the papers may be  redirected to the regular issues of the journal. All contributors will be expected to participate in peer reviewing of the submissions by their fellow contributors.

This special issue will be edited by Ehtibar Dzhafarov (Purdue University), Emmanuel Haven (University of Leicester), Andrei Khrennikov (Linnaeus University) and Sandro Sozzo (University of Leicester). 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 October 15, 2015. The papers should be submitted before March 15, 2016. We intend to put the special issue into production by the end of 2016. Appeals to editorial decisions will be handled by Philip Smith, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Mathematical Psychology.
