The journal aims to collate work of highest quality and significance within disciplines connected to cognitive science, including, but not limited to, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, aesthetics, anthropology, and education, insofar as it is deemed to be of interest to those who pursue the study of mind. In particular, we would like to encourage submissions that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries in both themes and methods, and hence those submissions and efforts that inform an interdisciplinary approach.
The journal showcases quality research, makes effort to facilitate the exchange of concepts, and illustrates the interdisciplinary work that represents the hallmark of the field of cognitive science. To see more information, please go to our web page: http://j-cs.org
