In this special issue, we seek submissions on the influence of social, motivational, and emotional processes on learning and memory. Submissions are invited that address any subtype of learning and memory. Multi-method (e.g., integrating behavioral, patient, computational, electrophysiological, or neural measures) and developmental approaches are of particular interest.
Boon, bias or bane? The potential influence of reviewer recommendations on editorial decision-making
“No formal investigations have been conducted into the efficacy or potential influence of reviewer recommendations on editorial decisions, and the impact of this on the expectations and behaviour of authors, reviewers and journal editors. This article addresses key questions about this critical aspect of the peer review submission process. We suggest several future steps which could be taken towards improving the review process and make it more transparent, better understood, and fairer for all parties.”

“This week’s guest on RESEARCHER Radio is Alison Heard from the University of Calgary. Join us to discover more about language processing. Just how well do we generate language and convey meaning? Just how far can a better understanding of sensorimotor effects take us? And what should you do when you first begin the PhD programme?”
Chapter led by Tadhg MacIntyre (University of Limerick) published in Progress in Brain Research.
A multi-disciplinary perspective on emergent and future innovations in peer review, led by Jonathan Tennant, recently won the inaugural Jean-Claude Guédon Prize, which was “created to reward the best article published in the last year on open access”.
