Many research projects produce exciting early results where the immediacy (and impact) is then lost as researchers seek to fashion full-length articles. In the Early Results section, authors can release early project findings without excessive theoretical setup or a long literature review.
In essence, these articles will be akin to working papers, where the results will ultimately feature in full articles with an extended argument (in other journals or PSR). This will provide not only a means by which early findings can be published but also an arena in which new ideas can be explored, promoted and tested.
Early Results submissions are limited to 3000 words inclusive of all notes and references.
