The Journal of Problem Solving (JPS) is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes empirical and theoretical papers on mental mechanisms involved in problem solving. The journal welcomes original and rigorous research in all areas of human problem solving, with special interest in those difficult problems in which human beings outperform artificial systems. JPS encourages submissions from psychology, computer science, mathematics, operations research, and neuroscience.
