Special issue on providing causal explanations in personality research
BGA-ers might wish to submit proposals to a special issue that welcomes concrete novel proposals that can advance causal interpretations in the context of current personality research (or make a well-argued case for why causal interpretations are currently impossible now or forever). Proposals of research designs, statistical models, to conceptual models are acceptable. Empirical examples are important. While these may be published, the ideas ought currently be unpublished.
