ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the journal's editorial policy regarding laboratory research. The authors comment on the determination of causality in science and the role of laboratory work in research focused on theory. They note a lack of laboratory-based studies at the journal and suggests this is due to fear of manuscript rejections. They note previous studies to illustrate how laboratory studies should validate theories, measure behavior and incorporate psychological realism.
