Special Issue in Journal of Intelligence: Intelligence and Education
You may be familiar with David Geary’s article in Psychological Review on “Efficiency of Mitochondrial Functioning as the Fundamental Biological Mechanism of General Intelligence (g)”. David Geary has also written a summary of his article as input (besides his original article) for a discussion the Journal of Intelligence organizes on the nature of intelligence. See https://www.mdpi.com/2079-3200/7/4/25.
This is an invitation to submit a commentary on David Geary’s article and his summary in the Journal of Intelligence.
The discussion issue of the journal with the commentaries are co-edited by Kristof Kovacs and Paul De Boeck. Kristof Kovacs is a senior research fellow at Eotvos Lorand University, Hungary. He has published articles on intelligence; in particular, he co-authored process overlap theory, a recent explanation of the positive manifold of intelligence.
Paul De Boeck is a professor of quantitative psychology at the Ohio State University in Columbus OH. He has published articles on intelligence, and he also is the editor of the open access Journal of Intelligence.
The editors have written an editorial to introduce the Special Discussion Issue of the journal as additional input for the discussion. David Geary will be invited to submit a rejoinder after a set of commentaries is available.
A handicap of our journal is that we do not yet have an impact factor. By submitting a commentary, you support an open access outlet for work on intelligence. We hope that the field will benefit from this kind of pluralism.
