The Society for Judgment and Decision Making

The Society for Judgment and Decision Making is an interdisciplinary academic organization dedicated to the study of normative, descriptive, and prescriptive theories of judgments and decisions. Its members include psychologists, economists, organizational researchers, decision analysts, and other decision researchers. The Society's primary event is its Annual Meeting, at which Society members present their research. It also publishes the journal Judgment and Decision Making.

Mailing lists:
Members of SJDM are added to the sjdm-members mailing list, which is for communications about society business such as meetings and elections. It also provides a password for the members section of this site and a monthly reminder of it. This is a very low-volumue mailing list. You cannot unsubscribe from it. If you want to quit, see the Members link above, which also has other options of possible interest. If you are a member and you are not getting mail about Society elections and other business, please check the list archives, and then (if you missed something recent) check your spam. If that doesn't help, write

The jdm-society mailing list is much higher volume and is open to all for reading and posting, but moderated.
