ESA-announce EER Special Issue on Social Identity and Discrimination
I would like to bring your attention to a special issue at the European Economic Review on "Social Identity and Discrimination," which is co-edited by Friederike Mengel and myself. Here is the call for papers:
"The special issue collects research on social identity and discrimination. It is open to fundamental research on social identity, categorization, phenomena such as in-group bias and homophily and the cognitive and social roots of discrimination. We also welcome applied submissions that focus on implications of these biases on economic decision making. This could include applications to e.g. labor markets or gender and racial discrimination. The special issue is open to theoretical work, lab experiments or field work alike.
Authors submitting to the special issue should indicate on the cover letter whether they are willing to be considered for a regular issue of the EER if the co-editors consider the paper not a good fit for the special issue. Papers may be submitted via the EER’s electronic submission system (http://ees.elsevier.com/eer/default.asp) from 6 September 2014, ensuring that that the article type “SI: Social Identity” is selected when prompted.
Please note that all submissions to this special issue are exempt from the EER’s submission fees.
The deadline for submissions is 31 May 2015."
Yan and Friederike
