"Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics" is a peer-reviewed, electronic-only journal that publishes research on topics broadly related to neuronally and psychologically inspired robots and other behaving autonomous systems. The journal focuses, in particular, on approaches to robotics that draw on analogies between autonomous robotics and embodied cognition, cognitive development, and the emergence of cognition and communication from social behavior. Our Editor-in-Chief is Professor Gregor Schöner (Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany).
