Series Foreword
—Robert R. Hoffman

The first volume in this series, Expertise and Technology (J.-M. Hoc, P. C. Cacciabue, & E. Hollnagel, Editors), was an edited collection of reports on research involving cognitive modeling and cognitive systems engineering in various domains. The second volume, The Nature of Expertise in Professional Acting (T. Noice & H. Noice, Authors), described a program of psychological research on a particular domain. The third volume, Naturalistic Decision Making (C. E. Zsambok & G. Klein, Editors), presented reports on expertise from the perspective of the NDM paradigm. The fourth title, Cognitive Task Analysis (J. M. Schraagen, S. Chipman, & V. L. Shalin, Editors), presented a variety of studies of expertise, all illustrating the methods of cognitive task analysis. This, the fifth volume in the series, enriches the series by taking an integrative perspective. Along the lines of “cognition in the wild, Harald Mieg brings together considerations on expertise from psychology and sociology. To paraphrase William Mace's dictum for cognitive science, rather than looking just at what's inside experts' heads, Mieg looks at what experts' heads are inside of—organizations, social roles, management, and so on. Mieg illustrates his arguments using two case study domains: financial marketing and global climate change. We are very pleased to have Harald's work for the Series because it expands the horizons for expertise studies. It reinforces the notion that the full understanding of expertise in complex sociotechnological contexts requires researchers to bring to bear the methods and perspectives of sciences in addition to experimental psychology.
