Special Issue "Experiments on Dishonesty in Strategic Interactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 July 2021).
Interests: behavioral and experimental economics; behavioral business ethics
A large body of economic experiments on dishonest behaviour in games has generated many insights into the general principles of ethical behaviour. The majority of papers in this field has focused on individual decision-making environments and explored individual and situational determinants of dishonest behaviour.
The special issue “Experiments on Dishonesty in Strategic Interactions” aims to encourage submissions of experiments where dishonesty unfolds in strategic interactions, i.e., where a subject’s dishonest conduct has immediate consequences for others. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to): lying in collaborative situations and the effect of competition on dishonest behaviour. We also welcome submission of experiment where lying has no direct monetary consequences on others (e.g., payoff interdependence) but where the mere presence of unaffected observers might condition dishonesty. Examples include the role of peer pressure, reputation, observability, and accountability (whistleblowing) on lying. We accept both laboratory and field experiments, with or without monetary incentives. To promote the verifiability and replicability of empirical results, submissions should include a power analysis, and all data should be made available upon publication.
