About

The Journal of Cognition and Neuroethics is a new twice-yearly, peer-reviewed, open access journal published online (ISSN 2166-5087), aimed at the promotion of scholarship across disciplines, as well as expanding the reach and understanding of the neurosciences and implications in the legal, social and ethical realms. It is our policy to never charge readers to access the journal or authors to publish scholarship in it.

The Journal of Cognition and Neuroethics is committed to presenting wide ranging discussions. We publish works that explore ideas, concepts, theories and their implications across multiple disciplines and professions, including philosophy, psychology, linguistics, education, social work, law, the neuro-, bio-, medical and pharmaceutical sciences. We are interested in works that offer critical analyses of relevant issues as well as those that explore the political, social, moral and legal implications of recent work in these fields.

Publishing the journal online means we are able to offer open access to its contents to scholars at any level, anywhere in the world where there is internet connection. Online publication will also shorten the time from submission to publication for our contributors. Please see the submissions information below to review our guidelines for authors and our contact information for information about the JCN.
