  • BSP Call for Spotlights

    Behavioral Science & Policy (BSP) is an international peer-reviewed journal featuring short, accessible articles describing actionable policy applications of behavioral scientific research that serves the public interest.

    We are pleased to invite proposals for Spotlights on topics related to our policy areas of focus: education and culture; energy and environment; financial decision making; health; justice and ethics; management and labor; and technology and innovation. 

    Similar to “special issues” in other journals, the purpose of Spotlights is to significantly advance our collective understanding on a specific issue. Different from traditional academic outlets, Spotlights appear within each BSP volume, and are designed to showcase a set of rigorous social science findings to policy makers who can use those findings in practice.

    Spotlight proposals will be evaluated by the journal’s Senior Editors. For more information on proposing a Spotlight, please click HERE. Please contact BSP Spotlights Senior Editor, Dr. Morela Hernandez with any questions: [email protected].
