About the Cognitive Science Journal Archive (CSJA):

  • What are the contents of this archive?

    In July 2005, the archive contained electronic full-text versions of 459 articles (of 98 issues and 24 years) that were originally published in the Cognitive Science Journal and collects materials published in the Proceedings of the Annual Cognitive Science Conference. [For excellent examples of Cognitive Science research, see the list of 10 classics from Cognitive Science.] The Archive also contains the Supplemental Materials to recently published articles.

  • What is the Cognitive Science Journal?

    Cognitive Science
    is the official journal of the Cognitive Science Society. The academic discipline of Cognitive Science unites researchers from many different fields who hold a common goal: understanding the nature of the human mind. The Society promotes scientific interchange among researchers in disciplines comprising the field of Cognitive Science, including Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Anthropology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Education.

  • Why are you offering this archive online?

    The basic idea behind this archive is to make some true treasures of Cognitive Science research widely available. Nowadays, the ease of information access can determine the impact of a publication. Articles that are not easily accessible are often not read or not cited, and sometimes ignored and forgotten. As authors want their work to be noticed we hope to act in their best interest by offering these articles to a world-wide audience.

  • What about the copyrights?

    All materials on this site are copyrighted by the Cognitive Science Society, Inc. Permission is freely granted for non-commercial personal or classroom use. Authors of the papers are free to post a copy on their personal website or to distribute individual copies in response to requests, from individuals, for reprints. Any commercial use, including any inclusion in other publications of any substantive quotes, figures, or tables, must have the permission of the Cognitive Science Society.

  • Am I allowed to copy and distribute these materials?

    You may download articles for non-commercial academic and private use. If you want others to have access to this material, please tell them about us and link to our main page


  • I noticed that some materials are missing — what about that?

    Unfortunately, we do not yet have electronic versions of all years and issues of Cognitive Science. Specifically, we are missing all articles published prior to 1980 and in 1981, as well as the following journal issues: 1983 (1), 1984 (1), 1987 (1), 1993 (1 & 3), and 1998 (2). [The current issues of the journal are available on LEA online.]

    This archive is a work in progress and we hope to close its gaps in the near future. If you are able to contribute to its contents, please send electronic versions of missing materials to Ryan Hope. We're grateful for any comments, corrections and suggestions!
