New peer-reviewed, open access journal

In September 2015, the Psychonomic Society launched a new peer-reviewed, open access journal: Cognitive Research: Principles & Implications. The journal is freely available to anyone with internet access and will be funded by author publication charges on manuscripts accepted for publication. All other journals have an open choice option to allow authors to provide full access to their papers immediately upon publication. PS uses Creative Commons licenses for all Open Access papers and a traditional copyright agreement for all other papers. All PS Journal publications become fully open access 12 months after online publication.

Transparency and Openness Promotion

Author Checklist for
Psychonomic Society Journals
(Level 1 of the TOP Guidelines)


The Psychonomic Society is committed to the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Level 1 standards for disclosing all important aspects of research design and data analysis. The purpose of this policy is to enhance the replicability of work published in Psychonomic Society journals and to encourage the sharing of data and materials among researchers. In keeping with TOP 1 guidelines, authors are asked to answer the following questions when submitting a manuscript, clarifying responses as desired in the box following each query. It is recognized that no single reporting or data-sharing standard is appropriate for the wide range of work published by the Psychonomic Society. Adherence to specific recommendations is not a precondition for review of a manuscript or publication of an article. Rather, authors are encouraged to review and use standards described by, for example, the American Psychological Association (APA).
