The Journal of Neuroscience (JNeurosci), the Society for Neuroscience’s flagship journal, publishes a print edition each Wednesday and recently began publishing early-release PDFs of studies online shortly after acceptance.
eNeuro, SfN’s open-access journal, publishes early-release PDFs of studies shortly after acceptance and then posts the fully edited articles online at a later date.
The embargo for JNeurosci and eNeuro early-release articles distributed in SfN’s weekly media email lifts at 1 p.m. Eastern Time the following Monday. The embargo for all other articles lifts at the time of online publication.
SfN encourages study authors to talk to reporters about their work in advance of publication as long as the authors and reporters are both aware of and follow the embargo policy. Reporters and public information officers (PIOs) should not distribute embargoed information to the public before the embargo has lifted, and PIOs must clearly indicate on their press releases the embargo date and time. Please contact the SfN Media & Communications Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) for clarification of these policies.
For permission to use images published in JNeurosci, please contact email@example.com with full citation for study, figure number, and a brief explanation of how material will be used. For non-media use, refer to the journal’s policies.
