This special issue contains a selection of papers presented at the fourth Conference on Information Integration Theory and Functional Measurement held in Coimbra, Portugal, on June 12-13, 2013. This conference gathered together more than fifty researchers from the four continents: Africa (Benin, Mozambique, Togo, and Tunisia), America (Canada, Colombia, the United States, and Venezuela), Asia (India, Israel, and Turkey), and Europe (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Romania, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom). The studies reported in the papers they presented were applications of Information Integration Theory and Functional Measurement (Anderson, 1996, 2008, 2012, 2013) to very diverse settings, ranging from number assessment from patterns of dots to philosophical considerations about human rights. In this special issue, the 22 presentations that have been accepted for publication have been grouped together into eight classical domains in psychology: Methodology (one paper), Psychophysics (one paper), Educational Psychology (three papers), Economic Psychology (four papers), Moral Science (four papers), Political Psychology (two papers), Health Psychology (five papers), and Cross-Cultural Psychology (two papers).
