The Journal of Expertise (JoE) is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing original scholarship in the area of expertise and expert performance, including both basic and applied research. JoE focuses on human expertise in complex domains such as music, sports, games, medicine, and science; research that uses animal models to understand basic issues relevant to expertise may also be appropriate. Empirical work published in JoE may use experimental, psychometric, historiometric, behavioral genetic, neuroimaging, computational, or idiographic approaches. Review articles may be qualitative (narrative) or quantitative (meta-analytic). Published quarterly, JoE is fully online and open access.
The primary goal of the current special issue is to explore these and related areas, as they pertain to research on expertise.
Special issue editors Brooke N. Macnamara and Samuel T. McAbee invite authors to submit papers (approximately 3,000 words) that address a clearly defined question related to open research practices or reproducibility in expertise research.
Examples of possible manuscripts include but are not limited to:
- Direct or near-direct replications of past findings
- Reports of multi-lab replication studies and/or adversarial collaborations
- Systematic reviews or meta-analyses that address the robustness of evidence from past research findings (e.g., seldom tested but widely accepted models or effects).
- Examinations of statistical, analytical, and reporting practices that may impact reproducibility of findings or conclusions drawn from research findings.
- Discussions of the relevance of data transparency and data sharing practices for theoretical advancements and methodological rigor
- Reviews of best practices and their application.
JoE's mission is to provide researchers, practitioners, and the public with open access to scientific research on expertise and expert performance. Accordingly, JoE has no subscription or publication fees. JoE also hosts, free of charge, interactive media (e.g., videos, PowerPoint presentations) created by authors to disseminate findings of their research.
