The Journal of Cognitive Psychology publishes contributions from all areas of cognitive psychology, focusing on sound and theory-driven studies that advance our understanding of cognitive mechanisms and processes. Contributors include experimental cognitive psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists, working in areas as diverse as perception, attention, language processing, numerical cognition, action and motor control, spatial cognition, learning, memory, reasoning, and decision making. Occasionally, contributions are at the intersection of cognitive psychology and related disciplines such as social or clinical psychology; note that such contributions can only be considered if they have clear theoretical implications for cognitive processes. Articles include reports of empirical work (including brief reports) and theoretical reviews. The Journal of Cognitive Psychology encourages solid and reproducible empirical work and therefore stimulates authors to adhere to the best research practices (including an Open Science philosophy). The Journal of Cognitive Psychology is an international journal, and the Editor welcomes submissions from scholars around the world.

The Journal of Cognitive Psychology is the official journal of the European Society for Cognitive Psychology.

Peer Review: All submitted manuscripts 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.
