Calls for Upcoming Volumes

Call for short commentaries regarding the future of comparative cognition

Target issue: Comparative Cognition & Behavior Reviews, vol. 19, 2024

Due date for authors: Friday, September 29, 2023

The editors of Comparative Cognition & Behavior Reviews (CCBR) are interested in brief commentaries from researchers regarding the future of the science of comparative cognition. Where is the field going? Where should the field go—what kinds of questions should future scientists work toward answering? Are there current problems in the field that will be addressed? Are there ones that we ought to revisit?

Commentaries should be brief—fewer than 2000 words—and will be subject to usual standards of peer-review and editorial approval. Accepted commentaries will be packaged together in a special section of the 2024 volume of CCBR.

This call is open to everyone working in the field of comparative cognition, broadly defined. As we look to the future, we are especially interested in receiving submissions from early career scientists./
