Frequently Asked Questions


was founded in 1997 as an online journal for work-in-progress within the cognitive sciences. The project was the idea of Gavin Boyce and Keith Frankish, who were both PhD students in philosophy at the University of Sheffield. Tom Dickins, then a PhD student in the Department of Human Communication Sciences, was soon recruited to the project and, with help from a number of colleagues and sponsorship from the Hang Seng Centre for Cognitive Studies (chaired by Peter Carruthers), two issues a year were produced during 1997 and 1998. When the original editors moved on, the project was taken over by Tom Simpson, also from the Sheffield Philosophy department, and a fifth issue appeared in 2001. The journal subsequently reverted to Tom and Keith and sixth issue was produced in 2003 in an open peer commentary format.

Connexions is now no longer active but the six back issues of the journal have been archived as pdf files and are available by clicking on the link to the left. A brief ‘Frequently asked questions’ page is also available which, among other things, explains how to cite Connexions articles.
