As a Christmas tradition, I usually put together a short list of articles that are not directly relevant to my research but I still find intriguing. (Last year I did not do this because I was focussing on finishing my PhD instead.) Because a couple of people have asked me for this list, I decided to post them here (in alphabetic order).
- Berk, R., Heidari, H., Jabbari, S., Kearns, M., & Roth, A. (2018). Fairness in Criminal Justice Risk Assessments: The State of the Art. Sociological Methods & Research, 1-42. DOI: 10.1177/0049124118782533

- Jost, J.T. (2018). A Quarter Century of System Justification Theory: Questions, Answers, Criticisms, and Societal Applications. British Journal of Social Psychology.

Not necessary light reads, especially the Glynn and Blackwell paper, but these are all theories and methods that piqued my interest.
Happy holidays everyone! 🙂
