About the Journal

Focus and Scope

This journal will focus on multidisciplinary research mainly in the area of Cognitive Philology, the science that studies written and oral texts, considering them as results of human mental processes.
This discipline, therefore, compares the results of textual science with those results of experimental research of both psychological field and artificial intelligence production systems.
Cognitive Philology, precisely, deals with transmission modalities of written and oral textes, and processes through which different knowledges are classified, availing itself, firstly, of the information theory; studies the narrative subject, especially regarding its selecting nature; examines the developing function of rhythm and metre and the pertinence of the semantic association during processing the cognitive maps; finally, it provides the scientific ground for the realization of critical multimedial editions.
