Editorial Reviews

Selected papers from a May 1998 conference held in Warrenton, VA, on naturalistic decision making, a relatively new field of applied psychological science. The conference theme was to explore links between naturalistic decision making<-->which has its roots in military command and control and is concerned with improving decision making in field settings<-->and work being done in areas such as management and industry. The 24 papers, contributed by researchers from academia, the military, and industry in the US and Europe, discuss topics such as training methods and system design, decision- making models, issues related to expertise, and problem solving by teams.
