Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting-New Orleans, Louisiana-November 15, 2018

Call for Papers

Submissions are welcome for a new international journal from Taylor & Francis entitled Auditory Perception & Cognition. This journal is affiliated with the annual Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting (APCAM) that precedes meetings of the Psychonomic Society.

Auditory Perception & Cognition seeks to bring together outstanding examples of auditory science across disciplines within one publication. It is unique in its consideration of work with either a basic or applied research focus that can target any level of processing (i.e., low-level perceptual to high-level cognitive), theoretical perspective (e.g., constructivist v. ecological) and methodology (e.g. neurophysiological v. behavioral/psychophysical; quantitative v. observational). The journal fills an important gap between general perceptual and cognitive journals that infrequently feature auditory work and highly specialized auditory publications that do not attract wide readership outside the authorÍs immediate domain.

Details about the journal, including instructions to authors, can be found on the journal website.


  • Contributors: perceptual and cognitive research psychologists, neuroscientists, speech and hearing scientists, musicologists, and individuals working in other specialty areas.

  • Suggested topics: localization, motion perception, spatial cognition, event and pattern perception, aurally guided action and navigation, auditory scene analysis and source identification, attention, perception of time, pitch, loudness, timbre, music perception, cognition, and performance, auditory learning, memory, and expertise, multi-modal integration, computational modeling, and comparative auditory processing, as well as neuroscientific evaluations/applications in any of these areas.

  • Publishes empirical reports, theoretical evaluations, brief reports, and commentaries, all free of page limits.

  • Combines quarterly subscription issues with an open-access issue. Authors determine upon acceptance of their article whether they would like it to appear in a standard or open-access issue.

  • All issues rely upon the identical, rigorous, peer-review process.

  • Open-access charges far undercut the competition from other journals.

Inquiries can be directed to co-editors Michael Hall and Michael Russell.
