The Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Cognitive Science is an electronic journal published by the Cognitive Science Student Association at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Our aim is to provide a forum for students to share work among peers and gain valuable experience in the process of getting an academic paper published. The journal is a unique reference for students, showcasing quality research by other undergraduate students, improving the contact and exchange of ideas between students and cognitive scientists alike, and illustrating the interdisciplinary work that is the hallmark of the field.

We're back!

After a short hiatus the 2006 issue will be released in September so keep an eye on your mailbox and please inform the editors if you want to be avised when the publication becomes available. We are also issuing a call for papers for the 2007 issue so if you think you've got something interesting and you want to get it published send it our way.

If you are a student, consider submitting one of your outstanding papers from a senior undergraduate class for next year's edition.

If you are a graduate student or faculty member in an academic discipline related to cognitive science, consider assisting us by refereeing some submissions this year. You can contact us at
