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.

    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.
