SFN OPENS SUBMISSIONS FOR NEW OPEN ACCESS JOURNAL ENEURO
Washington, DC — The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) announced today that it is accepting submissions for eNeuro, its new open-access journal, and also revealed eNeuro’s founding editorial board. Featuring a wide range of content, eNeuro will provide an innovative venue for publishing excellent science across the neuroscience field, with a fair, fast review process for researchers.
“Submitting research to eNeuro allows researchers to share their science and advance the field,” said Christophe Bernard of INSERM, the publication’s editor-in-chief. “With input from an exceptional editorial board of prominent scientists across our multidisciplinary field, eNeuro is developing into an innovative and important forum for communicating about discoveries in neuroscience.”
eNeuro will publish high-quality, broad-based, peer-reviewed research focused solely on the field of neuroscience. In launching the journal, the Society seeks to realize a scientific vision for a new open-access experience for authors and readers, all in support of SfN’s mission to advance understanding of the brain and nervous system.
The inaugural editorial board is composed of current and emerging leaders from across the field, with 39 reviewing editors working alongside Bernard and the eNeuro Advisory Board: Tim Bussey (University of Cambridge), György Buzsáki (New York University), Margaret McCarthy (University of Maryland), Freda Miller (Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto), and Serge Przedborski (Columbia University).
As part of an enhanced publishing experience, eNeuro will offer:
For authors: A wide array of content, ranging from research articles to reviews and commentaries to negative results to tools and methods. It will also offer fair and fast review by respected, working scientists spanning many disciplines, rapid publishing ensuring that the field has swift access to research, and a publishing decision model based on scientific factors rather than commercial ones.
For readers: Expanded online features, including greater use of images, video, and audio for published articles, as well as continuous content publishing when studies are ready.
For the field of neuroscience: A high-quality, open-access journal option. As a nonprofit publisher, SfN reinvests revenue in programs worldwide that enhance and serve the field.;
The Society for Neuroscience is an organization of nearly 40,000 basic scientists and clinicians who study the brain and nervous system.
