The Journal of Cognition invites proposals for Special Research Collections, similar to special issues of traditional print journals. Special Research Collections should focus on an important topic within the scope of the journal, and should include at least three manuscripts (typically 3-6 contributions) with corresponding authors from at least three different universities. Proposals should include a working title for the collection, a brief case for why the topic is important and timely, and a tentative list of the special collection content (including corresponding authors who have agreed to take part, and working titles of papers, if available). Please send your proposal to MoreyC@cardiff.ac.uk.
If your proposal is accepted, the European Society for Cognitive Psychology will pay the article processing charges for the content. The proposer(s) of the special collection normally act as associate editor for submissions to the collection, with assistance from the editorial board where needed to avoid conflicts of interest.
To submit a proposal, please download, complete and return the application form.

This collection features a theoretical review by Oberauer describing various ways attention has been conceptualized and applied to understanding memory, cataloguing their differences, and weighing the strength of evidence for each. There is then follow up critical commentaries from experts on attention, cognitive control, and working memory with a reply from Oberauer.
