Call for QJEP Special Issue Papers: “50 years of working memory: Contemporary insights for the Baddeley and Hitch (1974) framework”.

The multicomponent model of working memory proposed by Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch nearly five decades ago is one of the oldest and most influential models in cognitive psychology. Although the Baddeley and Hitch (1974) model was introduced in a volume of The Psychology of Learning and Motivation, less well known is that some of the key empirical evidence was later laid out in more detail in a paper published in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology (QJEP) by Hitch and Baddeley (1976).

It is therefore appropriate and fitting for a special issue of QJEP to celebrate 50 years of the Baddeley and Hitch working memory tradition. QJEP invites submissions of papers that provide contemporary insights and analysis for the working memory model, showcasing state-of-the-art work in this area.
