Abstract:

This bibliography provides a partial listing of published studies which demonstrate an effect of irrelevant information on human judgment. While it is apparent that there are numerous studies of irrelevance, there have been no previous efforts to compile a listing of these papers. However, it is clear from the bibliography that the use of irrelevant information has been reported in a wide range of research areas. Moreover, there are a number of parallel research efforts on irrelevance which have not been previously documented.
