Social dilemmas capture significant problems in society such as tax evasion, scarcity of natural resources and human contributions to climate change. These problems are often adhered to in the research community, motivating the studies that are presented. As a consequence, those concerned with the problems, either as policy makers or as victims, may request that scientists have something to say about potential solutions to social dilemmas. To live up to expectations, properties of relevance for behavioural decisions in social dilemmas should be incorporated in the research design in that findings can be generalized to situations where the phenomenon under investigation naturally occurs.
