Call for Papers: Cognitive Psychology
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 mechanism shares earnings with editors and reviewers for any journal work (not just work leading to acceptance), and allows them to make decisions as to what happens with this value, with options to “pay forward” that value to institutional OA budgets, or to an author waiver fund subsidizing APCs for other researchers. 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.
But, most importantly for this call for papers, Collabra: Psychology has a great team of editors in cognitive psychology, currently including:
Rolf Zwaan (Senior Editor), Erasmus University Rotterdam
