Acta Psychologica publishes research studies, review articles and special issues in any area of experimental psychology. Research studies should be focused on increasing our understanding of human behaviour and cognition. The majority of the articles deal with perception, attention, language, memory, cognitive and/or affective control, numerical and motor cognition. However, more clinical, social, computational, neuropsychological and neuroscientific papers will also be considered as long as the study focuses on a specific aspect of human information processing and is of interest to one of the above-mentioned research communities. Papers outside this scope and papers with limited theoretical value (effect-driven papers) will not be considered. Review papers and special issues are typically on invitation, but authors can contact the Editor-in-Chief for an informal inquiry. Acta Psychologica has published seminal papers in the past and intends to do so in the future. We aim to publish articles that serve as solid building blocks for a research field while still being accessible for researchers outside this field. We strive to publish good research rather than deciding about papers exclusively from the viewpoint of originality. Hence we will also consider replication studies.
