Dear Talking Brains readers,
as of right now, there is a new place to send your papers if they are cognitive neuroscience of language papers. Please see the announcement below -- and then send me your best work.
Lorraine (Lolly) Tyler remains the Editor of LCP. I will be the editor for cognitive neuroscience of language.
There are not that many outlets for theoretically motivated and biologically serious research on speech/language, so please take advantage of this opportunity to publish your best work.
Language and Cognitive Processes -- New Special Section Announcement!
In 2009 LCP will broaden its remit by publishing two additional issues a year devoted to the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language. The development of cognitive neuroscience methodologies has significantly broadened the empirical scope of experimental language studies. Both hemodynamic imaging and electrophysiological approaches provide new perspectives on the representation and processing of language, and add important constraints on the development of theoretical accounts of language function.
In light of the strong interest in and growing influence of these new tools LCP will publish two issues a year on the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language. All types of articles will be considered, including reviews, whose submission is encouraged. Submissions should exemplify the subject in its most straightforward sense: linking good cognitive science and good neuroscience to answer key questions about the nature of language and cognition.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the journal's Scholar One website: www.mc.manuscriptcentral.com/plcp. When submitting, please select "Cognitive Neuroscience of Language" from the manuscript type drop down.
Peer Review Integrity
All published research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and refereeing by independent expert referees.
