The Governing Board of the Cognitive Science Society voted in late 2006 to found a new journal, Topics in Cognitive Science (topiCS). The journal seeks to fill a niche not occupied by Cognitive Science Journal or other cognitive science journals. At the same time, the journal will continue in the tradition of the Cognitive Science Journal by being characterized by rigorous reviewing and high-quality papers. As the name suggests, topiCS will be directed at current topics in cognitive science. The journal will have a special issues format in that each issue would focus on a single topic.

Topics in Cognitive Science (topiCS) began publication in January, 2009.
