Elsevier Launches New Journal: Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition

A journal for researchers, professionals and practitioners working in the field of memory and cognition

Oxford, March 27, 2012Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of the official journal of the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition, the Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition. Published quarterly, the first issue of the journal is now available online.

The Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition publishes an engaging mix of the latest theoretically motivated research: empirical studies, review articles, and target papers with invited peer commentary. The goal of the journal is to reach not only researchers working in this field and allied areas but also professionals and practitioners who seek to understand, apply, and benefit from research on memory and cognition.

Dr. Ronald Fisher of Florida International University, Editor-in-Chief of the journal said, “Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition (JARMAC) will feature innovative, creative empirical research targeting the overlap between cognitive theory and real-world application. Reflecting the broad range of cognitive psychology, and its successful history of application to societal problems, JARMAC is receptive to articles that examine any cognitive process (e.g. memory, attention, decision-making, problem-solving, perception, mental representation) and toward application across many applied domains (e.g. education, health, aging, law, security, athletics, transportation, business, military).”

The first issue of the Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition is now freely available to view online on SciVerse ScienceDirect.
