Current Psychology Letters/Behaviour, Brain & Cognition was created in 2000 by Jean-Paul Caverni and Jacques Vauclair. Marie-France Pichevin served as editorial assistant between 2000 and 2007. Until 2002, it was published as a print version three times a year by the publisher de Boeck Université.

Current Psychology Letters/Behaviour, Brain & Cognition is now an electronic research journal. It is indexed in PsycINFO (indexation by ISI Social and Behavioural Sciences is under way).

Current Psychology Letters publishes short papers reporting original findings that warrant rapid communication to the scientific community.

Current Psychology Letters welcomes contributions in all areas of cognitive experimental psychology including cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, cognitive neurosciences, social cognition, cognitive development, cognitive neuropsychology, and comparative cognition.

Papers should emphasise experimental work but theoretical, methodological and critical notes papers will also be considered.

Current Psychology Letters occasionally publishes special issues devoted to a research area that has seen rapid recent advances.

All articles are internationally peer-reviewed. Authors may only have one paper in the CPL/BBC review process at a time until a final editorial decision is made.

Papers will be accepted or rejected within four months on the advice of at least two reviewers. Replies will simply indicate acceptance, acceptance with small amendments, or rejection. If a serious revision is required, papers will be rejected but a new submission may be allowed.

Accepted short papers will be published electronically as soon as they are accepted for publication and full-text papers available for free on CPL/BBC Web site.

All papers must conform to the standards specified in the APA Publication Manual (fifth edition).

Papers must be written in English with an abstract presented in English and French.
