Launched in 2014, SfN's open-access journal publishes high quality papers in all areas of neuroscience.
eNeuro is committed to providing a venue to advance neuroscience research by
- Offering a venue for the international community of neuroscientists to publish all rigorous research, including studies that found negative results or replication studies
- Ensuring the peer review system remains open, rapid, and fair
- Maintaining a fully open-access neuroscience journal that is experimenting with emerging publishing, peer review, and content concepts
- Changing the way science is evaluated and published and transforming the publishing landscape for the better
