Call for Submissions: Journal of Memory and Language: Special Issue on Computational Models of Memory


JML seeks to highlight research on computational modelling in all areas of memory research, including short-term/working memory, episodic memory, semantic memory, and implicit memory. Articles should present new research, such as the development of a new model, the application of one or several competing existing model(s) to experimental data, or a new test of predictions derived formally from an existing model. It is important to relate the model or models to empirical data to demonstrate their explanatory power.


This special issue will be edited by Trish Van Zandt, Ian Neath, and Klaus Oberauer.  Please e-mail preliminary expressions of intent to submit, in the form of proposed title and abstract, to the editors, by September 1, 2018.  The editors will evaluate the proposals to determine their fit to the topic of the issue.  They will invite full submissions by October 1, 2018


The submission deadline for the full articles is April 1, 2019.  Once authors have received an invitation to proceed, the submission should be made online at, noting that the submission is being made for the special issue.
