Aims & Scope:

The Journal of Cognitive Science (JCS) is published quarterly (founded in 2000) as the official journal of International Association for Cognitive Science (IACS) by the Institute for Cognitive Science at Seoul National University. It is a SCOPUS, ESCI, KCI journal. It aims to publish research articles of the highest quality and significance within the disciplines that form cognitive science, including philosophy, psychology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, anthropology, and education. Submissions that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries in either themes or methods are especially encouraged. AI-associated Cognitive Science will be newly reinforced and papers in this area are encouraged to be submitted.

Contributions may be in the form of articles, brief reports, reviews, or squibs.

Authors who have published in JCS include Paul Smolensky, Alfonso Caramazza, Dedre Gentner, Paul Thagard, and Jean-Pierre Descles. Three consecutive Special Issues on David Chalmers' Computational Theory of Mind and his detailed replies to other scholars are available all online free (2012 vol and 2011 vol) at
