Call for Papers
The Cognitive Science of Medical Expertise
A New Thematic Series for Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications (CR:PI)
Deadline: December 31, 2021
Scott Fraundorf, University of Pittsburgh, USA (sfraundo at pitt.edu<mailto:sfraundo at pitt.edu>)
Susanne Lajoie, McGill University, Canada (susanne.lajoie at mcgill.ca<mailto:susanne.lajoie at mcgill.ca>)
Nikki Woods, University of Toronto, Canada (Nikki.Woods at utoronto.ca<mailto:Nikki.Woods at utoronto.ca>)
This special issue aims to bring together articles on the cognitive science of medical expertise.
The basic science of expert knowledge and performance has long been of interest in psychology and education, and medicine is an outstanding example.  Medical professionals acquire complex, interrelated knowledge and skills—e.g., symptoms, diagnoses, and treatments—over a period of years.  They apply their skills in daily professional activities with stakes for patient health and well-being.  And, they must keep cognitive skills current even as standards of care change.
At the same time, the acquisition, maintenance, and assessment of medical expertise is in transition, often from point-in-time assessments to more frequent activities designed for both assessment and learning.  These transitions present exciting opportunities to apply cognitive science to facilitate the development and retention of medical expertise.
Studies in this special issue may examine learning by physicians and other medical professionals anywhere in the continuum from undergraduate study to continuing education.  They may also probe the cognitive representation and processing of medical knowledge with studies of clinical reasoning or of medical errors.  Studies may report novel empirical data and/or theoretical perspectives or reviews.  We invite you to contribute.
About CR:PI
CR:PI is the open access journal of the Psychonomic Society. Its mission is to publish use-inspired basic research: fundamental cognitive research that grows from hypotheses about real-world problems. As with all Psychonomic Society journals, submissions to CR:PI are subject to rigorous peer review.
For manuscripts accepted for the special issue, the publication fee may be fully or partially waived depending on the number of manuscripts accepted for the special issue. The authors should indicate when they submit a manuscript if they are requesting a waiver of the publication fee.
Deadline/Submission Details
Abstracts should be submitted by deadline December 31, 2021.  Upon review of the abstracts, authors may then be invited to submit a full manuscript. You can find manuscript submission details at:
Please email any or all of the guest editors with any questions about submissions.
