Call for Papers

Special Issue to Commemorate the
50th Anniversary of Atkinson and Shiffrin

Human Memory: A Proposed
System and Its Control Processes

Deadline: June 1, 2018

Guest Editors:
Rich Shiffrin, University of Indiana
Ken Malmberg, University of South Florida

It has been 50 years since Atkinson and Shiffrin published their seminal chapter on the modal model of memory, influencing much of the modern agenda in memory research. We invite all interested researchers to submit papers for this special issue. Such papers could pursue themes set forth in that chapter, alternatives to those themes, new research projects related to those themes, or reviews of select research topics relevant to that chapter.

Papers should meet the high scientific and ethical standards for the journal and will be subject to the normal exacting review process. If you have any questions, please email the guest editors at the addresses below.

Manuscripts should be submitted using the normal electronic submission portal for Memory and Cognition ( by June 1, 2018 and should state in the cover letter that the paper should be considered for the special issue.

If the guest editors invite revisions, these will be expected within two months of receipt of the editorial decision letter and reviews. There will generally only be one round of revision and resubmission to allow for timely publication of the special issue. Strong papers that miss the deadline for submission of a revision or that require more than minor additional revisions after an invited resubmission may be considered for publication in a later, standard issue of the journal, at the discretion of the journal editor: Neil Mulligan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Please email questions to the editors:
Rich Shiffrin, University of Indiana
Ken Malmberg, University of South Florida
