ABC Journal

The Master Brain and Cognitive Sciences and the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition centre is proud to present its own interdisciplinary master’s thesis journal: the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition Journal (ABC Journal). This journal, produced by and for master’s students, highlights the high-quality research of the students of the research master’s programme Brain and Cognitive Sciences (MBCS) of the University of Amsterdam.

Note that from issue 3 onwards, we use password-protection on the PDFs to keep out web crawlers. To access these issues, please use the password ABCjournalX, where X is the issue number.

Master’s students can submit research papers describing work from either their first or second research project. When graduated, both research projects will, upon approval, automatically be sent to the ABC Journal to compete for publication. Manuscripts will undergo a review process by members of the editorial board, after which the best manuscripts will be selected to be published in full length, upon permission of the writer. Please note that the ABC Journal is a student archive, therefore publication in our journal will not interfere with publication in scientific journals.
