Discussion: Call for commentary on Alexandra Koyfman's
"Set and Unconscious Semantic Priming: Two
Different Labels or Two Distinct Phenomena?"
In the spring RJCS issue we will continue the discussion of the set and unconscious priming initiated in the winter issue by the target paper "Set and Unconscious Semantic Priming: Two Different Labels or Two Distinct Phenomena?" by Alexandra Koyfman (in Russian). First commentary by Margarita Filippova ("Comparing Two Paradigms and the "Prepersonal Level" of Priming", in Russian) was published in the winter issue as well. We will consider other commentary on the target article sent to the editors by the end of February. Discussion papers will be reviewed and accepted commentary will be published in the spring issue.
