CALL FOR PAPERS

Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Cognitive Science
http://www.sfu.ca/cognitive-science/journal/

(Issue #2 - Spring 2003)


AIMS & SCOPE

The Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Cognitive Science is an electronic 
journal published by the Cognitive Science Student Association at Simon 
Fraser University. Our aim is to provide a forum for students to share 
work amongst peers and gain valuable experience in the process of 
getting an academic paper published. As a publication, CUJCS provides a 
unique reference for students, showcasing quality research by other 
undergraduate students, improving the contact and exchange of ideas 
between Canadian students and cognitive scientists alike, and 
illustrating the interdisciplinary work that is the hallmark of 
cognitive science everywhere.

Although preference will be given to Canadian students, contributions 
from students elsewhere are strongly encouraged.

JOURNAL TOPICS

Journal topics include, but are not limited to:

- artificial intelligence
- computational linguistics / natural language processing
- neuroscience
- philosophy of mind / psychology / language
- cognitive & biological psychology
- history of cognitive science

In particular, we would like to encourage submissions that cross the 
traditional disciplinary boundaries.

SUBMISSIONS

All submissions must be in English, clearly written and in sufficient 
detail to allow the referees to assess the merits of the work. Papers 
should be no longer than 5000 words / 15 pages, double spaced, and 
should conform to one of the popular style guides, such as the MLA, APA 
and IEEE formats. (Technical details of these formats are available at 
various places online).

following address:
CUJCS Submissions
c/o Cognitive Science Student Association
Simon Fraser University
Burnaby, BC V5A 1S6
CANADA

Please note that papers will not be returned.

To ensure a blind review process, each of the hard copies provided with 
the initial submission must be accompanied by a cover page listing the 
appropriate contact information. This information should not appear 
anywhere else in the paper. Failure to abide by these rules may result 
in immediate rejection.

Submissions will be reviewed based on the following general criteria: 
Relevance to a Broad Audience; Technical Merit; and Clarity of Presentation.

Authors will be notified of acceptance by February 28, 2003. Accepted 
authors will then be able to make minor revisions as suggested by their 
reviewers.

For the final submission, due April 3, 2003, papers must be submitted 
electronically with any necessary revisions in either PDF or PostScript 
format, to the following address: cogsci-journal at sfu.ca. The final 
version must follow the style standard put forward in the author kit 
sent to the authors of accepted papers (it will be a variant of the APA 
format).

Please note: papers arriving late or exceeding size limits may be 
rejected immediately without refereeing. Should you suspect you might 
have trouble meeting any of the above deadlines, please inform us 
immediately. The receipt of all submitted papers will be acknowledged by 
E-mail.

COPYRIGHT INFORMATION

In keeping with the editorial policy of another cognitive science 
journal, "Connexions", we are of the opinion that papers submitted to 
our journal will usually be samples of work-in-progress. As such, 
acceptance in CUJCS should not impede publication of a later version in 
traditional journals. The copyright of all contributions remains with 
their authors.

February 28, 2003: notification of acceptance
