The Journal of Cognition invites proposals for Special Research Collections, similar to special issues of traditional print journals. Special Research Collections should focus on an important topic within the scope of the journal, and should include at least three manuscripts (typically 3-6 contributions) with corresponding authors from at least three different universities. Proposals should include a working title for the collection, a brief case for why the topic is important and timely, and a tentative list of the special collection content (including corresponding authors who have agreed to take part, and working titles of papers, if available). To submit a proposal, please download, complete and return the application form to Candice Morey.
If your proposal is accepted, the European Society for Cognitive Psychology will pay the article processing charges for the content. The proposer(s) of the special collection normally act as associate editor for submissions to the collection, with assistance from the editorial board where needed to avoid conflicts of interest.
