Since a couple of years Andrea Scarantino has taken over the position of the Emotion Researcher - a publication of the International Society for Research on Emotion (ISRE). If you have not discovered this "Sourcebook for Research on Emotion and Affect", you should. Every issue has a special topic and, in my function as the president of ISRE, I also have a column with the name "ISRE matters" where I put a personal spin on the special topic. The present issue has the topic of guilt.
