Computational Brain & Behavior publishes research on the computational basis of the mind. The journal covers a wide range of topics using mathematical modeling, computer simulation, and empirical work. This journal places a strong emphasis on scientific rigor, and on the greater insights that quantitative modeling can provide. In addition to contributions from psychology, neuroscience, computer science, mathematics, and linguistics, the journal strongly encourages contributions from related disciplines, such as model-based cognitive neuroscience, computational psychiatry, and machine learning. 

The journal is affiliated with the Society for Mathematical Psychology.

Peer Review Policy

All submissions are peer-reviewed and the peer review process is single blind. The editor in chief performs a first check of the article to ensure that it reaches a threshold of quality to be sent in peer-review. The editor in chief ensures that each manuscript is reviewed by a minimum of two independent experts in a related field. Reviewers will receive instructions to comply with the journal ethical and editorial norms, and to evaluate the submission according to the following criteria: ethical soundness, methodological rigour, originality, and potential to contribute to the body of scientific knowledge.
