JARMAC publishes an engaging mix of the latest theoretically motivated research: empirical studies, review articles, and target papers with invited peer commentary. The goal of this unique journal is to reach not only psychological scientists working in this field and allied areas but also professionals and practitioners who seek to understand, apply, and benefit from research on memory and cognition. Therefore, each empirical article must include a section clearly describing the practical applications of the research. We encourage brevity and crisp, lively prose that appeals to a wide audience. Empirical studies should normally not exceed 4,000 words. We prefer multiple-experiment studies, but will consider single-experiment submissions. JARMAC also features longer target articles that articulate particular perspectives on applied issues related to memory and cognition. Target articles should not exceed 6,000 words; for authors considering a target article, prior discussion with the Editor is recommended.  



"articles that run the gamut from explicating basic cognitive process, to dissecting real-world phenomena in terms of their cognitive components, to revealing new experimental paradigms that create novel methods of exploration. The one constant in all articles is that they advance our knowledge significantly. Readers should be struck with the beauty and power to enlighten that is found in great science." —Ron Fisher, First Editor in Chief of JARMAC
