Research on the mechanisms of human cognition is leading to a deeper understanding of how the processes of thinking, problem solving, attention, perception, and memory affect learning and have led to effective strategies to enhance learning in educational settings ranging from pre-K to adult education environments. The Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology (JCEP) presents in-depth articles on theory and empirical research as well as current practice and effectiveness of cognitive assessment, cognitive rehabilitation, cognitive education, and psychology around the world. Readers include those in education, cognitive psychology, special education, adult education, educational psychology, school psychology, speech and language, and public policy.

Call for Papers 

The Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology (JCEP) is the official journal of the International Association for Cognitive Education and Psychology and published in both a print and on-line edition. Published in English, each article is abstracted in English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian. JCEP is indexed in major databases, including PsycINFO. The purpose of the Journal is to provide readers with timely, relevant, and broadly based information about cognitive development, education, and assessment, and their theoretical bases, practice, and effectiveness. To accomplish this, the Journal is divided into three sections.

  • "Theory and Research" features peer-reviewed reports of original empirical studies, theoretical papers, and reviews of literature relevant to advances in the general domain of cognitive education (including cognitive development and cognitive assessment). This section includes basic studies of cognitive development and cognitive processes that are directly relevant to cognitive education, applied research on thinking and learning processes, as well as reports of research evaluating the efficacy of programs, approaches, and innovations in cognitive education. Manuscripts submitted for publication in the "Theory and Research" section are peer-reviewed blindly, that is, without the reviewers' knowledge of the identities of the authors.
  • "Cognitive Education Around the World" features reprints of articles selected from the worldwide literature deemed to be of interest but not otherwise readily available to readers. Material can include articles from popular publications, scientific journals, or agency/government publications. Materials originally appearing in languages other than English are considered for publication when translation to English can be arranged.
  • "What's New in Cognitive Education?" features brief reports as well as descriptions of exploratory studies on cognitive education. It includes book reviews as well as summaries of books and educational/psychological materials that are new to the market. This section also contains abstracts of recent master's theses and doctoral dissertations in the general domain of cognitive development, education, and assessment. Descriptions of books and materials recommended for review or listing are welcome and should be sent to the Editor.

The Editorial Board welcomes contributions to the Journal by both members of the International Association for Cognitive Education and those who are not yet members.
