Cognitive Processing is articulated in the following sections:

  • Cognitive Development
  • Cognitive Models of Risk and Decision Making
  • 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
  • Social Cognition and Cognitive Science of Culture

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
