The power of cognitive psychology lies in the promise of cognitive technology.
     

The Journal’s Mission

Cognitive Technology’s mission is to provide a forum for scientific analysis of new developments that can assist or augment cognitive functioning—areas of research and development that range from perception, memory, comprehension, decision making, problem solving, and reasoning, and functioning that may occur at the individual or the group level. Cognitive Technology publishes high quality research applying our understanding cognition and by promoting the communication of this research within and between the applied and basic research communities. Cognitive Technology strives to be an authoritative voice in multidisciplinary research and development addressing the dynamic intersection of cognition and technology.

 

Cognition and Technology

There has been tremendous growth in the disciplines seeking to understand human cognition, and research in cognitive technology can now be found far beyond the halls of psychology departments. As such, we invite submissions in a variety of areas of research and development (see www.cognitivetechnologyjournal.com/topics.php). Examples of the types of submissions we welcome include, but are not limited to:

  • Research into the design and test of the cognitive aids, increasingly prevalent in our everyday life, supporting or augmenting basic cognitive processes such as memory and attention
  • Tests of memory procedures to enhance remembering or research on problem solving strategies that improve solution generation
  • Research in human performance and human factors - for example, research exploring how our understanding of cognition has been applied to the development of theories, techniques, or tools implemented in the classroom, at the office, or in aircraft cockpits and automobile dashboards
  • New research and technologies addressing the needs of a growing populace experiencing cognitive aging
  • Cognitive rehabilitation research advancing retraining of the brain-injured or technologies helping to improve the quality of life for this population
  • Tests of modeling and simulation systems supporting learning and training to help us understand and improve complex cognitive processes
  • Cognitive engineering research where sociotechnical systems, based upon a sophisticated understanding of how humans interact with technology, designed to support cognition and collaboration in complex environments
  • Research in cognitive models and cognitive robotics, where findings from cognitive psychology have been used to develop autonomous agents capable of emulating and supporting cognitive processes

 

In sum, the concept of “cognitive technology” encompasses this broad and tremendously important set of developing areas of inquiry, and the mission of Cognitive Technology is to be at the forefront of this exciting research. Cognitive Technology strives to provide an innovative forum and communication channel that promotes the sharing of scientific knowledge helpful to not only basic and applied researchers, but also to practitioners working to support human cognition. Cognitive Technology will publish research that advances our knowledge and application of both theories and methods pertaining to human cognition. Appropriate articles will evaluate and/or investigate new cognitive technologies in the form of procedures, devices, or systems, developed to support cognitive functioning. Articles can range from empirical testing to theoretical analyses of a class of devices serving certain cognitive functions. All articles should be well-grounded in the literatures appropriate to their respective areas.
