Routledge Advances in Behavioral Economics and Finance

Dear Colleagues,

Routledge is reviving their Routledge Advances in Behavioral Economics and Finance series. The series consists of two types of books. Routledge hardcover books range in length from 60,000 to 130,000 words, and includes research monographs, edited volumes, conference or workshop volumes, and Ph.D. dissertations conversions. Routledge Focus are 20,000 to 40,000 word books. They include extended essays, expanded case studies, and in general books longer than a single research paper but shorter than a standard book. Both formats are also published in paperback format 18 to 24 months after the initial publication date. Routledge will also publish some books in paperback format from the outset. Paperback books are generally in the range of 60,000 to 100,000 words. Topics, regardless of book format, can be anything in the field of behavioral economics. Topics can come from some of the major public policy issues including health care,  education, poverty, income and/or wealth distribution, productivity, macro stability, and immigration, to name but a few. Or books about current or earlier behavioral economists. As a behavioral economist your research agenda is a topic of interest to Routledge.

I promise a quick response time.

If you are interested then please send me a proposal to rabeandf@gmail.com

Sincerely,
Roger Frantz
Editor, Routledge Advances in Behavioral Economics and Finance
Editor, Journal of Behavioral Economics for Policy

Workshop proposals: Selected events

In response to the call for workshop proposals, SABE received 16 very strong proposals, all outlining plans for high quality workshops in line with the aims of SABE, making the selection process a very competitive and tough one.

Following an objective assessment of each proposal by SABE’s workshop panel (along the criteria outlined in the call for proposals), SABE is very pleased to announce the winners, all of which SABE can devote – at least some – funding to.

In total SABE is able to grant a total of $8000 to the following successful proposals:

  • “Workshop on Behavioural and Experimental Economics”, Monk Prayogshala, Mumbai, India
  • “Winter Experimental Social Science Institute Workshop”, New York University, Abu Dhabi, UAE
  • “TAPMI-MPIB-SOTON Winter School on Bounded Rationality”, Manipal, India
  • “Promoting​​ ​​Behavioral​​ ​​and​​ ​​Experimental Economics​​ ​​in​​ ​​Latin​​ ​​America”, Bogota, Colombia
  • “Workshop on Psychological Game Theory: Emotions and Economic Theory”, Otranto, Italy

Despite not being able to fund all high quality proposals, we would like to thank all applicants for their submissions and would like to strongly encourage them to apply to future SABE calls.

IAREP/SABE Summer School Funding: Call for applications

Call for organizing a IAREP/SABE Summer School on Behavioral Economics and Economic Psychology

IAREP and SABE dedicate up to 6,000 Euro to sponsor a joint Summer School, to take place in 2018. Instructors in the Summer School should strike a fair balance between economists and psychologists. The Summer School typically hosts about 20 PhD students and early-career faculty, also about equally divided between the two disciplines. The Summer School is expected to cover one week of instruction and to be scheduled during summer months. We encourage applicants to apply for matching funding from other sources.

IAREP or SABE members who are interested in organizing a Summer School are requested to submit their proposal to Behnud Mir Djawadi (behnud.mir.djawadi@uni-paderborn.de) and Cäzilia Loibl (loibl.3@osu.edu) by December 20, 2017. Both organizations will then evaluate any proposals received.

Please include in your proposal:
* Title of Summer School
* Names of organizers
* Location and dates of Summer School
* Target audience and how it will be recruited
* Learning objectives and outline of content to be taught
* Names of presenters
* Amount requested
* Sources and amounts of matching funds
