The Special Issue Spotter

We trawl the world's journals so you don't have to:

William James memorial issue (Journal of Humanistic Psychology).

Imaging genetics (NeuroImage). From the editorial: 'Imaging genetics can be defined as research strategy that applies anatomical or functional imaging technologies as phenotypic assays to evaluate genetic variation with the potential to understand their impact on behavior ... Imaging genetics has become tremendously popular over the past years and many hundreds of studies have utilized genetics and neuroimaging techniques so far in order to investigate the subtle relationship between genes and their neural correlates.'

Implicit measures of consumer response (Psychology and Marketing).

Mental health courts and diversion programs (International Journal of Law and Psychiatry).

Collaboration, coordination, and adaptation in complex sociotechnical systems (Human Factors). From the preface: 'Sociotechnical systems comprise integrated human and machine entities that, when functioning as an integrated, coordinated unit, can address a wide range of problems that are too complex to be addressed by individuals or machines working alone. However, the design and implementation of modern work systems tends to place primary emphasis on technological innovation without equal consideration for the social component—the teams and groups of humans—that uses that technology.'

Self, other and memory, memory and self-understanding: Self-concept – self-image – self-deception (Consciousness and Cognition).
