Special Issue "Cognitive Models in Intelligence Research"
A special issue of Journal of Intelligence (ISSN 2079-3200).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018).
Identifying the cognitive processes underlying individual differences in cognitive abilities has great implications for both elementary cognitive and neuroscientific research, as well as for numerous applications, e.g., targeted training programs. Recent advancements in the development of mathematical models that describe cognitive processes such as working memory and speeded decision making have provided further opportunities to identify specific process parameters related to intelligence. Moreover, accessible software solutions allow the widespread use of mathematical models such as the diffusion model for a great number of research questions related to individual differences. Based on these developments, a number of exciting questions arise: How are parameters of cognitive models related to mental abilities? Is there a hierarchical structure of model parameters reflecting both general- and domain- or content-specific abilities? Can cognitive models provide a link between neural data and intelligence test scores in terms of mediating cognitive processes as suggested by proponents of model-based cognitive neuroscience? How can the psychometric properties of model parameters be evaluated and improved? Are there best practices and practical recommendations for the application of cognitive models in individual differences research? This Special Issue invites contributions addressing conceptual or empirical questions regarding cognitive models in intelligence research.Dr. Anna-Lena Schubert
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Intelligence is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
