Call for Book Proposals – Monographs or Edited Volumes for our Series in Cognitive Science

Vernon Press invites monograph or edited volume book proposals in the area of Cognitive Science.

A long way has been walked from the early precursors of modern cognitive science. From the mid-50s, researchers and technology have worked in parallel to elucidate how the brain functions. The amount of scientific information regarding the mind – once known as the ‘black box’ – is nowadays considerable.

The series will cover the latest scientific research on the mind and its processes, from a diverse range of perspectives. The ambition is to expand this distinctive and authoritative series and facilitate a common understanding across diverse disciplines and approaches and act as a stepstone for further advances. Seeking original contributions, synthesis, and reviews that take stock of the current state of the art, we particularly welcome works that popularise recent advances in the sciences of the mind or explore their social implications. We aspire to provide a wide audience to the fascinating discipline of cognitive science.

All areas of study, with the common goal of understanding the nature of the human mind are encouraged to be submitted.

Possible contributions include (but are not limited to):

  • Consciousness, perception, thinking, judgment, memory, language, emotions, learning, decision-making
  • Sensory (visual, auditory, tactile) illusions
  • Cross-cultural comparisons
  • Brain development, brain diseases, consequences, and treatment
  • Brain plasticity
  • Collective intelligence
  • Brain and the body
  • Theoretical discussions/ commentaries on contemporary cognitive science-related topics
  • Reflections on the implications of scientific findings on every-day life events
  • Technology/ tools supporting cognitive science research
