Special Issue in Psychological Research: New Perspectives on Human Multitasking

Our Priority Program's joint efforts have resulted in a special issue titled "New Perspectives on Human Multitasking", which appeared in Psychological Research.

For this special issue, Edita Poljac, Andrea Kiesel, Iring Koch, and Hermann Müller of our Coordination Team served as guest editors. The Special Issue contains 21 peer-reviewed articles reflecting the multifarious research contributing to new perspectives on human multitasking.
