To answer a comment by a reviewer, I decided to read (well, browse) a whole year of JASSS papers and to mark down which of them contained constructs that correspond to mental representations and which ones didn’t. As I went reading, it was obvious that my simple grid wasn’t very good; that in some cases, it’s hard to tell if you have only “simple” agents – that is, agents following the KISS principle – or not. At the same time, I got immediately greedy: I started to collect more data in the grid – some of them when I had already moved forward, and I didn’t feel like going back to fill the previous slots.
I don’t know if this can be of any use but to myself – but here it is just in case. Note that I’m publishing it as an editable google spreadsheet, so if you feel I made some mistake, you can just go and correct them.
The editable spreadsheet (if I have made no uploading mistakes) is here
