Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Cognitive Science

(Issue #2 - Spring 2003)


The Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Cognitive Science is an
electronic journal published by the Cognitive Science Student
Association at Simon Fraser University. Our aim is to provide a forum
for students to share work amongst peers and gain valuable experience
in the process of getting an academic paper published. As a
publication, CUJCS provides a unique reference for students,
showcasing quality research by other undergraduate students, improving
the contact and exchange of ideas between Canadian students and
cognitive scientists alike, and illustrating the interdisciplinary
work that is the hallmark of cognitive science everywhere.

Although preference will be given to Canadian students, contributions from
students elsewhere are strongly encouraged.


Journal topics include, but are not limited to:

- computational linguistics / natural language processing
- philosophy of language / mind / psychology
- neuroscience
- artificial intelligence
- cognitive & biological psychology
- history of cognitive science

In particular, we would like to encourage submissions that cross the
traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Accepted papers are published in full in PDF electronic format and are

All submissions must be in English, clearly written and in sufficient
detail to allow the referees to assess the merits of the work. Papers
should be no longer than 5000 words / 15 pages, double spaced, and
should conform to one of the popular style guides, such as the MLA,
APA and IEEE formats. (Technical details of these formats are
available at various places online).

Please forward three hard copies, no later than January 15, 2003, to the
following address:
CUJCS Submissions
c/o Cognitive Science Student Association
Simon Fraser University
Burnaby, BC V5A 1S6

Please note that papers will not be returned.

To ensure a blind review process, each of the hard copies provided
with the initial submission must be accompanied by a cover page
listing the appropriate contact information. This information should
not appear anywhere else in the paper. Failure to abide by these rules
may result in immediate rejection.

Submissions will be reviewed based on the following general criteria:
Relevance to a Broad Audience; Technical Merit; and Clarity of

Authors will be notified of acceptance by February 28, 2003. Accepted
authors will then be able to make minor revisions as suggested by
their reviewers.

For the final submission, due April 3, 2003, papers must be submitted
electronically with any necessary revisions in either PDF or
PostScript format, to the following address: The final version must follow the style
standard put forward in the author kit sent to the authors of accepted
papers (it will be a variant of the APA format).

Please note: papers arriving late or exceeding size limits may be
rejected immediately without refereeing. Should you suspect you might
have trouble meeting any of the above deadlines, please inform us
immediately. The receipt of all submitted papers will be acknowledged
by E-mail.


In keeping with the editorial policy of another cognitive science
journal, "Connexions", we are of the opinion that papers submitted to
our journal will usually be samples of work-in-progress. As such,
acceptance in CUJCS should not impede publication of a later version
in traditional journals. The copyright of all contributions remains
with their authors.


January 15, 2003: deadline for initial paper submission
February 28, 2003: notification of acceptance
April 1, 2003: revised papers due
April 21, 2003: publishing date for Issue #2, CUJCS
