Mark Peterson, Florida Atlantic University, USA 

Portrait_A30744_Peterson_Mark_95px
Editorial Area: Culture and Implicit Institutions
Area Scope: Submissions drawing from the theoretical traditions in anthropology, communication, economics, political science, psychology, or sociology that use the family of concepts often referred to as culture or implicit (informal) institutions. These traditions include theories and models of values, norms, beliefs, and the less explicit aspects of institutions that are mainly based on established patterns of societal understandings and behavior patterns rather than on specific governmental structures, programs or legal systems. Theory is appropriate that discusses societal values, institutional logics, and rights standards that are characteristic of countries and other large societal groups, as well as theory based on personal values and cognition that is clearly linked to individuals’ responses to societal characteristics. Studies comparing regions or subgroups within a country may be considered if the subgroups have a demonstrated cultural history and cultural qualities that are analogous to culturally-coherent countries. Methods can include ethnographies, analyses of primary data collected using surveys, experiments, and secondary analyses of large databases.
