Kevin Lewis’s List

I’m on a mailing list of Kevin Lewis, who contributes to “Surprising Insights from the Social Sciences” in the Globe, in which he groups together interesting-looking abstracts on a particular theme. He does this every day. I find a lot of interesting papers this way, and it’s a pretty inspiring way to start the work day to see that other people are doing cool things, and that people care about it.

I expect to post some abstracts here; I wrote about a paper from the list yesterday on the Social Science Stats blog.

He appears to not have a blog, but he should. Mailing list is a pretty clumsy way of distributing this information, and I think a lot of people would be interested in getting it.
