About Journal of Intelligence


The Journal of Intelligence (ISSN 2079-3200) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original empirical and theoretical articles, state-of-the-art articles and critical reviews, case studies, original short notes,  commentaries, and letters. Our aim is to offer an open access journal that moves forward the study of human intelligence: the basis and development of intelligence, its nature in terms of structure and processes, and its correlates and consequences, also including the measurement and modeling of intelligence. Related topics, such as artificial intelligence, and animal intelligence are welcomed as far as they shed light on human intelligence. We encourage authors to document their results in as much detail as possible. The full experimental and data analysis details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced and so that other researchers can better build on earlier work. Detailed descriptions of the procedure, software code and output of analyses must be made available in order to be deposited as supplementary material, unless it is in contradiction with privacy or security regulations or intellectual property rights. The journal will not consider manuscripts that present results or conclusions with mixed language, with misleading wording or with insufficient supporting data that may therefore lead to or enhance political controversies; and the editors will judge whether that is the case.
