  • Call for Papers: Exploration of Human Cognitive Universals and Human Cognitive Diversity

    Memory & Cognition is seeking submissions for a special issue or section featuring studies that present data from underrepresented populations. We are looking for empirical studies in human cognition in which the participants are drawn from populations that are underrepresented in the cognitive psychology literature. One of the primary goals of this Special Issue is to highlight cross-cultural cognitive research and to interrogate the ideas of human cognitive universals and human cognitive diversity. 

  • Call for Papers: Rethinking the Distinction between Episodic and Semantic Memory

    The purpose of this Special Issue of Memory & Cognition is to bring together researchers doing cutting-edge work at the intersection between episodic and semantic memory, not only to showcase studies directly probing this psychological distinction, but also articles that seek to provide conceptual and theoretical accounts that can help us to understand the precise relationship between these two apparently different kinds of memory. Of note, this Special Issue for Memory & Cognition will highlight important new behavioral findings that can help to illuminate the relationship between semantic and episodic memory. 

    Guest Editors: Felipe De Brigard, Sharda Umanath, Muireann Irish
    Submission Deadline: November 1, 2020

  • COVID-19 Impact

    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 adhering to the normal timelines associated with many steps of the publication process, including peer review.  Please do let us know if you need additional time at any step. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines, but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
