About the prize

To celebrate the relaunch of Cogent Psychology, under a brand new Editorial Team, led by Professor Daryl O’Connor (University of Leeds, UK), we are offering a chance to win a number of Cogent Psychology Open Access fee waivers for papers submitted before December 15th 2021.

For a chance to be considered, entrants must submit a Structured Abstract directly to the journal’s Editor-in-Chief. Hereafter, the best Abstracts chosen to receive the waiver will also be honoured with a Cogent Psychology Research Spotlight Award - a newly established award from a global publisher to add to your CV. 


What do I need to do to be considered for a Cogent Psychology Research Spotlight Award (and Open Access fee waiver)?

Submit a 250 word (max) Structured Abstract (Objective, Method, Results, Conclusions) for consideration for publication in any of the 10 Sections of the Journal or any area of meta-science/open science relevant to psychology.
