SBE 2020

NSF’s Directorate for the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) has just made available the White Papers that it received in response to a call from SBE Assistant Director Myron Gutmann. Here is the announcement:

I am pleased to let you know that the public access website for the SBE 2020 White Papers is now open.   Even before members of the research communities had access to all of the papers, the project has sparked broad interest across the SBE sciences.  One of the signs of our project’s success has been the extent to which many of you worked with colleagues on your white papers.  In order to share that information, we have identified your co-signers and the professional societies who have endorsed various papers in the listing.  Your contributions individually and collectively, already enrich the research enterprise and stand to have great impact on the course of future work.

Please take a moment to visit the site:, and to share the URL with your co-authors and colleagues.  If you see any glitches, please let us know and we will correct them.  However, please note that we cannot accept revisions or resubmittals of papers.

We are grateful for your efforts and look forward to finding ways to sustain this conversation.
