About IYC

Our goal: It’s Your Choice is a blog committed to the dissemination of cutting-edge research related to all aspects of judgment and decision making. Articles are written and edited by active judgment and decision making researchers.  Our goal is to create a platform through which JDM researchers can communicate their findings to a wider audience, including other JDM researchers, policy-makers, educators, and interested members of the lay public. 

Our model: Authors of recently published JDM research write each blog post. Articles are solicited and edited by the editorial team. Articles are short (~1,000 word), easily digestible summaries of recent empirical research and/or theoretical advances.

Our values: As editors of the blog of the Society for Judgment and Decision Making, we strive to be inclusive of all SJDM members as well as researchers who explore topics of broad relevance to JDM. This includes soliciting contributions from across academic disciplines, including (but not limited to) psychology, behavioral economics, medicine, political science, law, etc. We strive to include diverse perspectives (e.g. gender, ethnic/racial, institutional, career stage).  We also encourage discussions about open science and robustness of research findings.
