Where to publish Decision Making research

Some of my research has taken (and will continue to take) a decision making approach to low-level tasks in visual perception and visual attention. Recently however I have been working on some higher level decision making tasks and so I’ve been scoping out target journals and conferences. In this post I provide a brief list of suitable journals. If I’ve missed any, then please do comment.

Searching Web of Science for journals with ‘decision’ in the title highlighted a few that are relevant to me. I list them in the form: Journal (Impact Factor to 1dp) Publisher (comments).

More general journals under the Web of Science ‘Psychology – Multidisciplinary’ category that seemed appropriate were:

Finally, I looked under the Web of Science ‘Psychology – Mathematical’ category and the relevant journals were:

Others of interest (I’ll add to this list over time)

I was hesitant to include the impact factors of the journals because there is a clear case for them being flawed (Seglen, 1997). But I included them as these kinds of metrics are being used by internal REF-panel decisions of what work is REF-submittable. Not an ideal situation, but it’s the world we live in and not the topic of this post.
