Cognitive Processing -- International Quarterly of Cognitive Science is a double-blind peer-reviewed international journal that publishes innovative contributions in the multidisciplinary field of cognitive science.
Its main purpose is to stimulate research and scientific interaction through communication between specialists in different fields on topics of common interest and to promote an interdisciplinary understanding of the diverse topics in contemporary cognitive science.
Cognitive Processing is a Transformative Journal (TJ). When research is accepted for publication, authors can choose to publish using either the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

- Cognitive Neuroscience
- Cognitive Psychology
- Computational Cognitive Sciences
- Philosophy of Mind
- Neuroimaging and Electrophysiological Methods
- Psycholinguistics and Computational linguistics
- Quantitative Psychology and Formal Theories in Cognitive Science

Cognitive Processing publishes papers under the following rubrics: Reviews are papers reviewing and discussing recent scientific literature on a problem relevant for cognitive science; Research Articles are exhaustive and extensive presentations of new scientific results; Short Communications are brief articles reporting important experimental findings that warrant rapid communication to the scientific community; Letters to the Editor present new, original ideas from research in progress that require immediate publication; Laboratory Notes are brief, general presentations of the activities in scientific laboratories. Opinion Papers and Commentaries present interesting and potentially fruitful ideas in cognitive science, or argue for a different point of view on published articles or controversial topics.
Double-blind peer review
This journal follows a double-blind reviewing procedure. Authors are therefore requested to submit:
+ A blinded manuscript without any author names and affiliations in the text or on the title page. Self-identifying citations and references in the article text should be avoided.
+ A separate title page, containing title, all author names, affiliations, and the contact information of the corresponding author. Any acknowledgements, disclosures, or funding information should also be included on this page.
93% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Cognitive Processing supports rigorous peer reviewing and is introducing with immediate effect a double-blind reviewing procedure.
Authors of new submissions are therefore requested to submit
