Life is a series of decisions. We make choices every day, small and large; sometimes we choose wisely and other times we choose foolishly. Understanding how people and organizations make decisions is a first step in helping people and organizations to make better decisions.
The Society for Judgment and Decision Making (SJDM) was formed to bring together researchers in a variety of disciplines who study how people and organizations make choices in the face of uncertainty and conflicting goals. SJDM's membership includes researchers in psychology, economics, management, marketing, accounting, medicine, law, public policy, and other disciplines.
The goal of the SJDM book series is two-fold: To provide an outlet for researchers to share their work with others within the field, and to disseminate the latest findings from the field to a broader audience in the service of addressing pressing societal, political, and environmental problems.
A complete list of titles in the SJDM series, which is overseen by the Publications Committee of the Society for Judgment and Decision Making, can be found on the Society's website, sjdm.org.
