|Call for Papers: Psychology of Consciousness
Dear Dr. Nielsen,
Your recently published research suggests that you are doing the type of high-quality scholarly work we publish in the new APA journal, Psychology of Consciousness: Theory, Research, and Practice (PSYCON). Action editors Brandon Gaudiano, Guy Montgomery, Erik Woody, and I would like to encourage you to submit a relevant, original research paper for consideration.
Psychology of Consciousness is a cross-disciplinary journal encompassing neuroscience, social, cognitive, experimental, and clinical psychology. The journal will focus on (a) topics that traditionally fall under the rubric of consciousness, (b) the scientific study of phenomena and experiences often considered to lie outside the boundary of traditional psychology, and (c) clinical approaches to modifying attention and consciousness. Articles on theory, research, and methodology are welcome.
Areas of interest include:
- Attention, awareness, and automaticity
- The neuroscience and psychobiology of consciousness
- Hypnosis, suggestion, and suggestibility
- Meditation, mindfulness, and interventions for modifying consciousness
- Placebo effects
- Sociocultural effects on consciousness
- Fantasy, daydreaming, and mind-wandering
- Hallucinations and delusions
- Individual differences
- Consciousness states associated with psychopathology
- Phenomenology and measurement of conscious states
- Unusual/anomalous experiences (e.g., mystical and near-death experiences, effects of hallucinogenic drugs, déjà vu)
- Lucid dreaming, narcolepsy, sleep paralysis, effects of sleep deprivation on consciousness, minimally conscious states
- Dissociation (e.g., depersonalization, derealization, out-of-body experiences)
We hope you will consider submitting a new paper for potential publication in Psychology of Consciousness. Every published article is included in PsycINFO® and PsycARTICLES®, the world’s most comprehensive and widely used psychological databases. Published articles are available to a global audience of over 3,000 institutions and 40 million potential users.
