Hotspots in (Consumer) Psychology


Call for research syntheses and meta-analyses, Special Issue of Zeitschrift f?r Psychologie; Abstract deadline 31 Jan 2017

Dear colleagues:

Please allow us to point you to a special issue entitled “Hotspots in Psychology”, to appear in the Zeitschrift für Psychologie in 2018:

The overall aim of this special issue is to address hotspot topics in all subfields of psychology – including consumer psychology – and related areas such as Marketing with the aid of research synthesis methods. The topics covered may address:

  • Systematic reviews and meta-analyses on topics currently being debated in any subfield of psychology.
  • Systematic reviews and meta-analyses contributing to the recent discussion about replicability, transparency, and research integrity in psychology.
  • Meta-analytic replications and extensions of previously published syntheses, for example, by applying more recent approaches and/or by including more recent primary studies.
  • Methodological advances in research synthesis methods relevant for any subfield of psychology.

There is a two-stage submissions process. Initially, interested authors are requested to submit extended abstracts of their proposed papers. Authors of the selected abstracts will then be invited to submit full papers.

The deadline for submitting structured abstracts is January 31, 2017.

More details can be found here:

We look very much forward to your submissions (and would be happy if you could forward this call to all colleagues who might be interested in submitting their work).

Thank you &
Best wishes,
