Manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Mental Imagery should deal centrally with mental imagery and its relationship to other processes. The cover sheet should state the title, author(s) and institutional affiliation; the body of the paper should bear no authorial identification. Each copy should include all tables and figures and a 100-200 word abstract. Format should adhere to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

Each submitted manuscript will be judged by at least two reviewers. The author(s) will be notified of editorial decisions within approximately three months after the date of the receipt of the manuscript.

Open Peer Commentary

Open Peer Commentary aims to provide interaction between author and commentators on a particularly significant or controversial piece of work that formally models or systematizes a body of research or proposes novel interpretation or critique of existing research. For each article selected, participating commentators will provide substantive criticism, interpretation, and elaboration as well as any pertinent complementary or supplementary material which will appear at the end of the target article. The target article may be a comprehensive overview with a creative angle, a rigorous treatment of a specific theme, or a new statement that generates meaningful dialogue.

A paper submitted for Open Peer Commentary should embody conceptual rigor, empirical grounding and clarity of style. A cover letter should provide its rationale and a list of suggested commentators. Articles must have an abstract, should not exceed 14,000 words and should ordinarily be considerably shorter. Commentaries should not exceed 1,000 words, and must have a short, distinctive, representative commentary title.
