Cognitive Neuroscience publishes high quality empirical and theoretical papers on any topic in the field of cognitive neuroscience including perception, attention, memory, language, action, social cognition, and executive function. The journal covers findings based on a variety of techniques such as fMRI, ERPs, MEG, TMS, and focal lesion studies. Contributions that employ or discuss multiple techniques to shed light on the spatial-temporal brain mechanisms underlying a cognitive process are encouraged.

The journal fills an important niche in the market by publishing shorter Reports with fast reviewing and rapid online publication. In addition, longer Discussion Papers will evaluate current hot topics in the field with critical analysis in the form of peer commentary.

We aim to publish accepted (but uncorrected) Discussion Papers and Reports online within 7 days and in final form within 6 weeks.

There are no page charges and we are able to offer free colour printing where colour is necessary.

Peer Review: All manuscript submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is single blind and submission is online via ScholarOne Manuscripts.
