Op-Economica, 11-6-2015 — Finally, we can see the galley proof of the long-awaited “mindsponge” work, whose concept and related ‘tools’ have for years now been serving as research workhorse in developing our economics/management insights.
The article in press has DOI: 10.1016/j.ijintrel.2015.06.003.
I pressed the “Submit” button this morning with a deep sigh of happiness, and now keep my fingers crossed.
I personally regard this as one of my major scientific contributions, which can only come after years of accumulating understandings of the world through empirical evidence and theoretical buildups (including mathematical modeling).
Now Elsevier’s IJIR is going to give it a genuine scientific lifecycle, and we hope to see the “mindsponge” concept to take off.
We also thank many people, including editors Profs. M. Harvey and M. Moeller and anonymous referees who gave us both encouragement and constructive criticisms, following which we have substantially improved the quality of the work.
