Aims and Scope of the Journal of Cognitive Systems Research
The journal of Cognitive Systems Research covers all topics in the study of cognitive processes, in both natural and artificial systems.
The journal emphasizes the integration/synthesis of ideas, concepts, constructs, theories, and techniques from multiple paradigms, perspectives, and disciplines, in the analysis, understanding, and design of cognitive and intelligent systems. Contributions describing results obtained within the traditional disciplines (e.g., psychology, artificial intelligence) using well-established paradigms are also sought if such work has broader implications and relevance.
The journal seeks to foster and promote the discussion of novel approaches in studying cognitive and intelligent systems. It also encourages cross fertilization of disciplines. This is to be achieved by soliciting and publishing high-quality contributions in all of the areas of study in cognitive science, including artificial intelligence, natural language processing (NLP),vision, cognitive robotics, psychology, system and control theory, biological sciences, and neuroscience. The scope of the journal includes the study of a variety of different cognitive systems, at different levels, ranging from social cognition, to individual cognitive agents, to components of cognitive systems. Of particular interest are theoretical, experimental, and integrative studies and computational modeling of cognitive systems at different levels of detail, and from different perspectives.
