SfN Launches Search for New Editors-in-Chief for Journals
The Society for Neuroscience Council has appointed a Search Committee to recommend candidates to serve as editors-in-chief for two Society-published journals:
- The Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Neuroscience, to be appointed for a 5-year term beginning January 1, 2015, after a period of transition with the current editor; and
- The first Editor-in-Chief of a new, open access, online-only neuroscience journal, expected to launch in late 2014, and temporarily referred to herein as “New Journal.” View the news release for more information about the New Journal.
A single search committee will conduct the search for the two editors-in-chief. Past SfN President Moses Chao of New York University will lead it. Other members include Hollis Cline of The Scripps Research Institute, Barry Everitt of the University of Cambridge, David Fitzpatrick of the Max Planck Florida Institute, and Eve Marder of Brandeis University.
SfN will accept nominations for one or both positions by January 28, 2014, with applications due by February 18. View the call for nominations letter for more information.
