Special Issue on: Evaluative Conditioning – Theoretical Accounts (Guest Editors: Robert Balas & Yoav Bar-Anan) [Vol 13 No 2 (2018)]

In the special issue, we would like to present a number of short papers that present models for the EC effect, as succinctly but also as explicitly as possible. The idea is to provide short and useful descriptions of each of the available EC models (and new models or perspectives), and their answers to central open questions about the EC effect. These papers will help clarify the specific assumptions derived from each model. The papers will also inform readers what questions the models do not answer, and specify what is still missing in each model and require further theorization (perhaps most models do not yet have specific predictions for many questions. It would help the field if that is explicitly stated).
