ISSN (printed): 1520-8834. ISSN (electronic): 1532-7760.
Discontinued in 2002. Continued by The Journal of Behavioral Finance (1542-7560). In The Journal of Psychology and Financial Markets, leaders in many fields will be brought together to address the implications of current work on individual and group emotion, cognition, and action for the behavior of markets. They include specialists in personality, social, and clinical psychology; psychiatry; organizational behavior; accounting; marketing; sociology; anthropology; behavioral economics; finance; and the multidisciplinary study of judgment and decision making. The journal will foster debate among groups who have keen insights into the behavioral patterns of markets but have not historically published in the more traditional financial and economic journals. Further, it will stimulate new interdisciplinary research and theory that will build a body of knowledge about the psychological influences on market fluctuations. The most obvious benefit will be a new understanding of markets that can greatly improve investment decision making. Another benefit will be the opportunity for behavioral scientists to expand the scope of their studies via the use of the enormous databases that document behavior in markets. Offering penetrating insights into the impact of psychological forces on economic performance, The Journal of Psychology and Financial Markets will be an indispensable resource for academics and practitioners alike. The journal will cover such problems as: perceptions of risk, new definitions of risk, investor expectations that are neither rational nor homogeneous, investor panic, overreaction and underreaction in markets, group interaction and herding behavior in markets, why contrarian strategies work, expert error, the need for more realistic expectations of forecast accuracy, exuberance and ebullience in financial markets, and when statistics lead investors astray.
