Tungodden in Nature Human Behaviour
Five years after the launch of Nature Human Behaviour, twenty-two leading experts in some of the core disciplines within the journal’s scope share their views on pressing open questions and new directions in their disciplines.
To mark their 5th anniversary, Nature Human Behaviour asked leading scientists in some of the key disciplines that the journal cover to share their vision of the future of research in their disciplines.
He writes about how behavioural and experimental economics have transformed the field of economics in "The future of human behaviour research".
The contributors underscore how important it is to broaden the scope of their disciplines to increase ecological validity and diversity of representation, in order to address pressing societal challenges that range from new technologies, modes of interaction and sociopolitical upheaval to disease, poverty, hunger, inequality and climate change. Taken together, these contributions highlight how achieving progress in each discipline will require incorporating insights and methods from others, breaking down disciplinary silos.
