    Hi all


    I want to make you aware of a call for papers for a special issue in Frontiers in Psychology, on the topic:


    • Affect and Cognition in Upper Echelons' Strategic Decision Making: Empirical and Theoretical Studies for Advancing Corporate Governance


    Research over the last 40 years has greatly advanced the investigation of upper echelons' strategic decision-making processes. However, what remains largely unknown within these processes is the interplay of affective states and cognition. In particular, we know little about how these two intertwine and influence the scale-up from the individual to collective strategic decision making as well as financial and non-financial performance outcomes.


    From that, themes that this Research Topic encourages include (but are not limited to):

    –  Are affectively-evaluated business opportunities as good as analytically-evaluated opportunities?

    –  How do biases scale up from the individual to the collective level?

    –  How does artificial intelligence create new perspectives on bounded rationality and bounded irrationality?

    –  What kind of psychological or cognitive attributes are more likely to influence executives' decisions related to non-financial firm outcomes such as corporate social responsibility or sustainability?



    I encourage you to send your work. Abstracts are due on March 26, 2021. Full manuscripts due September 30, 2021.
