Aims & Scope

The purposes of Aging, Neuropsychology, and Cognition are to (a) publish research on both the normal and dysfunctional aspects of cognitive development in adulthood and aging, and (b) promote the integration of theories, methods, and research findings between the fields of cognitive gerontology and neuropsychology.

The primary emphasis of the journal is to publish original empirical research. Emphases of interest include information processing mechanisms, intellectual abilities, the impact of injury or disease on performance, cognitive training, cognitive and pharmacological approaches to treatment and rehabilitation, metacognition, and the social and personal aspects of cognitive functioning. Articles on both normal and dysfunctional development that are relevant to the interface between cognitive gerontology and neuropsychology are particularly welcome.

Submission of Manuscripts

Manuscripts must be submitted through the journal's Scholar One website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/nanc. Questions for the editor may be addressed to: linas@med.umich.edu or mjsliwin@psych.syr.edu. Only original papers will be considered. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been published, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that its submission for publication has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was performed and that any person cited as a source of personal communications has approved such citation.

If you wish to view details of a paper which you submitted before 16th April 2007, or wish to submit a revision of a paper that you submitted before thisdate, please follow this link to the old Scholar One website: http://neuropsychology.manuscriptcentral.com

Preparation of Manuscripts

The manuscript should be prepared using MS Word or WordPerfect. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material from other sources and are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of copyright to the publisher. All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher.

All parts of the manuscript should be double-spaced, with margins of at least one inch on all sides. Number manuscript pages consecutively throughout the paper. The title page must include the title, authors' names and addresses, and the phone and fax numbers and e-mail address of the corresponding author. Authors should also supply a shortened version of the title suitable for the running head, not exceeding 50 character spaces, an abstract of not more than 150 words. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and references to the text in the abstract.


Acknowledgments should be gathered into a brief statement at the end of the text. All sources of financial sponsorship are to be acknowledged, including the names of private and public sector sponsors. This includes government grants, corporate funding, trade associations and contracts.


References should be formatted in APA style (as indicated in the APA Publication Manual 5th Ed.) and cited in the text by author and date (Smith & Jones, 1983). Multiple references within one set of parentheses should be set off by semi-colon. Examples:

Journal: Marsh, R.L., & Bryan, E.S. (1999). The activation of unrelated and cancelled intentions. Memory and Cognition, 27, 320--327.
Book: Wechsler, D. (1981). Manual for the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale -- Revised. New York, Psychological Corporation.

Tables and Figures

Tables and figures should not be embedded in the text, but should be included as separate files. A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend and any footnotes suitable identified below. Figures should be completely labelled, taking into account necessary size reduction. For highest quality reproduction authors should follow these guidelines:

  • 300 dpi or higher
  • sized to fit on journal page
  • EPS, TIFF, or PSD format only
  • submitted as separate files - not embedded in text files.

Color illustrations will be considered for publication; however, the author will be required to bear the full cost involved in their printing and publication. The charge for the first page with color is $900.00. The next three pages with color are $450.00 each. A custom quote will be provided for color art totaling more than 4 journal pages. Good-quality color prints or files should be provided in their final size. The publisher has the right to refuse publication of color prints deemed unacceptable.


Page proofs will be sent to the designated corresponding author using the electronic Taylor & Francis EProof system. They should be checked and returned within 48 hours of receipt.


Free article access: Corresponding authors will receive free online access to their article through our website (www.informaworld.com) and a complimentary copy of the issue containing their article. Reprints of articles published in this journal can be purchased through RightslinkŪ when proofs are received. If you have any queries, please contact our reprints department at reprints@tandf.co.uk
