The annual meeting is a perfect opportunity to collaborate with peers and present new research in the neuroscience field. Sharing research is exciting because it sheds light on important and popular topics; however, it is also important to respect and protect one’s individual science.

Protecting one’s science is beneficial for researchers and involves safeguarding intellectual property, research, and data that are not yet available to the general public. SfN has policies to help ensure that this information remains within the arena that it is presented and intended to be shared.

The policies include guidelines for embargo, social media, and photography. Attendees must get permission from speakers or poster presenters prior to the publishing any research results to guarantee that the ownership of information remains preserved. These guidelines are designed benefit researchers, leading to the protection of their work. Your cooperation is appreciated.
