CfP JBEP Special Issue on “Behavioral Business Research and its Stakeholders”

Traditional research in economics and the other social sciences is sometimes criticized for questionable relevance to business and public policy, inability to prepare students for work or responsible citizenship, and as stymied by internal disciplinary divisions. Behavioral approaches have been touted as a way forward by unifying the social sciences based on the empirical facts of evolved human psychology that are relevant to the concerns of diverse stakeholders.Business schools can nurture this process as forums where researchers from different disciplines, practitioners and students interact. However, misaligned incentives and differences in scientific conventions, epistemology and methods impede the emergence of a behavioral business discipline from economics, psychology and management.

This Special Issue is devoted to the case for, prospects and challenges of a unified behavioral business research that has public policy implications and/or enhances the skills of policy makers. Within this framework, topics of interest include discussions of whether and how behavioral approaches can be help to (1) integrate the social sciences which enhances public policy, (2) bridge the gap to business and public policy audiences, and (3) better serve students and their future employers.
