We invite submissions for a Special Issue on the topic of “eye movements and visual cognition”.
In keeping with the overall aim of the journal, to stimulate useful an interchange between individuals working primarily on basic theoretical issues and those working on more applied aspects of vision science, we invite papers on a range of topics related to the theme of “eye movements and visual cognition”. We are particularly interested in papers that review particular topics within this broad field. Such reviews might be narrative (critiquing and summarizing research on a particular topic), tutorial (with a focus on methods and findings), empirical (e.g., meta-analytic), or theoretically synthetic (or some combination of these types). We will also consider papers with new empirical content when this emerges to resolve an undecided issue from such a review. Papers that seek to bridge the gap between theoretical and applied aspects, and between behavior and its neural substrate, will be especially welcome. Some examples of possible topics for this Special Issue are provided below. This should be viewed as a suggestive list, rather than an exhaustive catalogue. Individuals unsure about whether a proposed submission would be appropriate are invited to contact one of the Special Issue Editors, Raymond Klein or Simon Liversedge.
