Abstract / Description of output

This is an editorial to the special section on 'Social Identity Modelling', published in Volume 26, Issues 2 and 3, 2023 of the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation. It provides information on how the Social Identity Approach (SIA) and research using its theoretical framework explains collective behaviour, tailored specifically for modellers. The discussion centres around describing and reflecting on the state of the art in modelling SIA. It ends with looking ahead towards formalising SIA as a means to enable more collective behavioural realism in agent-based social simulations.
