We invite you to submit your work in cognitive psychology to Collabra: Psychology, the official open access journal of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS), published by University of California Press.
If you’ve already heard of us, you will know that Collabra: Psychology is different. It is not just another OA journal, but a journal that actually gives back to the research community through a novel mechanism that recognizes and shares the value contributed by editors and peer reviewers. This page explains it in full.
Additionally, Collabra: Psychology is focused on scientific, methodological, and ethical rigor. Editors and reviewers do not attempt to predict a submission’s impact to the field, nor employ any topic bias in accepting articles — they will check for rigorously and transparently conducted, statistically sound, adequately powered, and fairly analyzed research worthy of inclusion in the scholarly record. The bar is set high.
The journal has published many great cognitive psychology articles since 2015, and there are currently two cognitive psychology special collections (which we called “Research Nexuses”) inviting submissions:
- Motivated cognition: Effects of reward, emotion, and motivational processes across a variety of cognitive domains. (Edited by Christopher Madan.)
- Verb Aspect and Event Cognition. (Guest Edited by Anita Eerland, Joe Magliano, and Todd Ferretti.)
But, most importantly for this call for papers, Collabra: Psychology has a great team of your peers on the cognitive psychology editorial board:
