The Journal of Nonverbal Behavior invites manuscripts for a Special Issue on the Science of Laughter. Although studies integrating humor and laughter are welcome, this issue is intended to advance our scientific understanding of laughter in its own right. This special issue welcomes empirical and theoretical papers from anthropology, communication, psychology. ethology, biology, affective science, relationship science, and others with an eye toward integrating disparate literatures on this interesting topic.
Submission Deadline: September 15, 2021
