Cognition

  • ISSN: 0010-0277
  • 5 Year impact factor: 4
  • Impact factor: 3.4
International Journal of Cognitive Science Cognition is an international journal that publishes theoretical and experimental papers on the study of the mind. It covers a wide variety of subjects concerning all the different aspects of cognition, ranging from experimental studies of behavior and of the brain to formal analysis. Papers will be selected on the basis of their scientific quality, their degree of innovation and their unambiguous theoretical advance to the study of cognition. Paper's overall soundness of the argument and degree of empirical motivation, especially from converging sources, are more important than adherence to specific methodological principles. Studies that selectively focus on the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie problems with cognition in clinical populations or on purely methodological questions fall outside the scope of Cognition. Because Cognition enjoys a wide readership from many disciplines, authors should explicitly consider the general theoretical issues raised by their work and its relevance to other topics and methods. Materials should describe work done and methods used in a clear and explicit manner (allowing reproduction of the methods by others). Cognition occasionally publishes special issues devoted to a research area that has seen rapid recent progress, promising new approaches, and convergence among different disciplines. Contributions: • Full theoretical and experimental papers on the study of the mind. •Brief articles reporting original empirical findings, major theoretical advances or crucial developments that warrant rapid communication to the scientific community •Proposals for special issues on a new and important area in the field •Discussions Reviewers please refer to Editorial Policy on Reviewing for Cognition. Cognition publishes many of the most important papers in cognitive science and is the premier international and interdisciplinary journal in the field. It is required reading for anyone who wishes to keep up to date in this exciting research area.

Futures

  • ISSN: 0016-3287
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.5
  • Impact factor: 3
For the Interdisciplinary Study of Futures, Anticipation and Foresight Futures: For the interdisciplinary study of futures, anticipation and foresight Futures Futures aims to build substantive research and knowledge about the relationships between humanity and its possible futures. It welcomes: new knowledge about humanity's diverse anticipatory practices and how to understand, challenge, develop or enhance them; novel futures-oriented research emerging at the intersections between and beyond disciplines that provides insights into humanity's (and posthumanity's) changing relationship with the future; and the highest quality scholarship in the field of futures/prospective studies. Above all, it is a journal that seeks to analyse and challenge uses, misuses and abuses of futures, and to build robust knowledge about the conditions for creating emancipatory, socially and ecologically just futures. In particular, Futures seeks to: Animate research interest in emerging questions of significance to the futures of people and planet Question and challenge the assumptions that shape how futures are imagined, by: Encouraging dialogue across different fields and different knowledge traditions about the futures of cultures and societies, science and technology, economics and politics, environment and the planet, individuals and humanity Building greater understanding of human (and more-than-human) anticipatory beliefs, expectations, practices and behaviours - building insight into how futures are imagined and the implications of these models for the present Pluralizing the worldviews and perspectives that inform scholarship on and about futures, in particular learning from the knowledges of those who have, hitherto, not been in positions of power and dominance Further develop the intellectual, ethical and empirical foundations of futures inquiry in interdisciplinary studies, the arts, humanities and social sciences, as well as in practice and policy settings Strengthen the methodological development of professional practices in the futures field - including scenario planning, foresight, horizon scanning, as well as methods emerging from outside these traditions Engender high quality, responsible approaches to futures education - in schools, universities and professional and policy settings About the Journal Futures was launched in 1968 to create a forum for the emerging field of Future Studies and is internationally recognised as a leading journal in the field Today, Futures is at the cutting edge of developments in the theory and practice of futures-oriented research across many disciplines, opening-up new ways of theorising, studying, challenging and cultivating human anticipation Futures acts as a point of encounter between the 50+ year history of Futures Studies and emerging interests in time and futures across many fields The journal is at the forefront of efforts to create more plural, democratic and sustainable futures through robust research, high quality scholarship and responsible practice Papers are subject to a rigorous double blind peer review process and are published soon after final acceptance What is in scope/ out of scope for publishing with Futures The journal welcomes papers that: Make a substantive contribution to knowledge in one or more of the following areas: 1. changing relationships between humanity and futures and/or 2.anticipatory processes - the uses of ideas of the future by individuals, organisations, systems and/or 3. the theory, ethics, methods and practices of futures, foresight and prospective and/or 4. the research and practice of futures education Are reflexive and transparent about the theories, assumptions and methods that are used to produce accounts of the future Have the potential to make a significant contribution to efforts to create more plural, democratic and ecologically just futures - by providing new empirical or conceptual insights, challenging paradigms, assumptions and ideas Make a substantial contribution through exploring and informing thinking about futures in a particular domain, country or geographical region, i.e. 'futures of X' (previous examples include work, healthcare, existential risks, education, capitalism, communities, small business, food, governance, synthetic biology...) We actively welcome proposals for Special Issues from researchers seeking to create an interdisciplinary forum for topics and issues that do not yet have a settled disciplinary home We are unable to publish papers that Simply advocate for a vision of a particular desired, possible or probable future, with no reflections on the basis for these claims, without transparency about the methods used to produce these claims, and with no inquiry into the consequences of these future images. For example, we cannot publish papers that simply state without rationale and robust supported argument - 'the future should be X' Simply describe a futures method or technique (e.g. we ran/made these scenarios or 'we did this survey') with no discussion of what happened because of this intervention, no reflection on the assumptions and theory that underpinned the approach, and no analysis of the contribution to the scholarship or practice already existing in the field. This would also exclude from consideration contributions which simply set out a particular model or forecast. Do not refer to futures or potential implications for the future in any way. For example, papers that simply describe technological improvements and efficiencies; papers that simply discuss methods, theories or innovations with no reference to their implications for humanity's relationship to futures or for developing futures-oriented research; or papers that do not explain why the proposed theory, method or innovation is of significance for human anticipatory capacities Do not engage with or contribute to the existing body of knowledge related to futures theory, research and practice

  • 5 Year impact factor: 1
  • Impact factor: 1.1
An International Review of General Linguistics Lingua welcomes submissions from all linguistic disciplines, not only general linguistics (i.e. phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics) but also philosophy of language, rhetoric, historical linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, cognitive linguistics, functional linguistics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics.Lingua is open to submissions, whether data-driven or theoretical, that contribute to our understanding of diverse linguistic constructs and communicative phenomena. Lingua is interested in both theoretical and empirical research problems, not restricted by disciplinary boundaries, which help linguists to develop linguistic theory and to better understand all mechanisms of language as a vehicle for communication. Lingua offers a forum for research on language diversity or specificity, as well as common features across languages that govern communication. No particular linguistic theories or scientific trends are favored: scientific quality, scholarly rigor and novel contributions to scholarship are the only criteria applied in the selection of papers accepted for publication.In addition to ORIGINAL RESEARCH PAPERS, Lingua publishes OVERVIEW ARTICLES that critically survey developments in the various fields of language study. A section called NOTES & DISCUSSION features short essays that extend, analyze, or offer alternative interpretations to articles previously published in Lingua. NOTES & DISCUSSION contributions are refereed as are journal articles; the primary criterion for acceptance being substantive additions, whether criticism or endorsement, to original articles.Lingua continues the tradition of SPECIAL ISSUES focused on topics of current interest. Prospective editors of special issues are invited to inquire the Editor-in-Chief ([email protected]) concerning their proposals.
